      «b»KIRKCUDBRIGHT PAROCHIAL BOARD APPEALS - 1848 -«/b» ( http://www.old-kirkcudbright.net/genealogy/appeals.asp )In 1847 responsibility for Poor Relief transferred from the Kirk (Church) Session to the newly formed Parochial Boards. When Kirkcudbright Parochial Board was formed one of its first tasks was to carry out an assessment of the 'Lands & Heritages' valuation and 'Means & Substance' valuation of all Parish residents. Half of the Parish Relief was to be obtained from each valuation class.Those whose annual income did not exceed £30, unless also owners of heritable property, were to be excluded, but those to whom assessment applied were duly given notice of the amount decided on. Subsequently, on 17th April 1848, a hearing was heard to decide on numerous appeals against the valuations.
      The minutes contain the following decisions:GEORGE FRATER: Flesher. Charged on £40 as Means & Substance - reduced to £35.
