Context area Name of creator(s): Employees and contacts of the Council Administrative / Biographical history: Kinross County Council was an elected body established, like other county councils, by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1889 (52 & 53 Vict., c. 50). County councils inherited almost all the functions of commissioners of supply, and those of county road trusts and local authorities set up under the Contagious Diseases (Animals) Acts. They also took over some administrative powers from the justices of the peace, but not their licensing or judicial functions. The responsibilities of the commissioners of supply for police matters were transferred to standing joint committees made up of commissioners of supply and county councillors. County councils were required to appoint full-time county medical officers of health and sanitary inspectors, and the local public health functions of parochial boards in landward areas were transferred to district committees of the county councils. The Local Government (Scotland) Act 1929 (19 & 20 Geo. V, c. 25) abolished district committees, standing joint committees, commissioners of supply, parish councils, education authorities and other bodies, and transferred all or most of their functions to county councils. The main impact was in the areas of the poor law and education. County councils were now responsible for education everywhere except in the four counties of cities, and for the poor law and public health except in the counties of cities and large burghs. Under the 1929 Act Kinross County Council was combined for most, but not all, purposes with Perth County Council to form Perth and Kinross Joint County Council. Combined services originally included education, poor law, roads, police, major health services, lunacy and mental deficiency. Kinross County Council was to remain responsible for minor services as well as any services delegated by the Joint County Council.County councils were abolished in 1975 and their powers transferred to regional, islands and district councils (Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973, c.65). Tayside Regional Council was the main successor

authority to Perth and Kinross County Council, although part of southern Perthshire was encompassed within the boundaries of Central Regional Council.

Commissioners of supply were first established in Scotland in 1667 to collect the cess, or national land tax, on a county basis. The Commissioners were themselves the substantial landowners of the county, defined after the Union as those possessing property, superiority or liferent of lands with a minimum annual value of £100 Scots. They gradually acquired duties other than tax collection, although that remained their main function. During the eighteenth century they collected various assessed taxes such as window and horse tax, and with the justices of the peace were responsible for county roads, bridges and ferries. They became an important institution of local government and provided a voice for the views and concerns of landowners. In some counties attention was paid to police and vagrancy matters, and taxes could be levied for prisons, asylums and county buildings. Almost all their functions were transferred to the new county councils in 1890 (Local Government (Scotland) Act 1889, 52 & 53 Vict., c.50), with one important exception. Commissioners of supply formed part of the membership of standing joint committees, which were the police authorities in counties until 1930, and also were required to approve all capital works undertaken by county councils. Both standing joint committees and commissioners of supply were abolished in 1930 (Local Government (Scotland) Act 1929, 19 & 20 Geo. V, c.25).

The Poor Law (Scotland) Act 1845 (8 & 9 Vict., c.83) established parochial boards throughout Scotland in rural parishes and towns, and a central Board of Supervision in Edinburgh. The constitution of the boards in rural areas depended on whether or not they imposed a poor rate. If they did not, they would be composed of the heritors and kirk session; if they did, they were required to add to the heritors and kirk session a varying number of members elected locally. Only a minority of parishes were legally assessed for poor rates in 1845 but most were by 1862. The entitlement to poor relief remained unchanged and excluded the able-bodied unemployed. Each parochial board was required to appoint an inspector of the poor who was in charge of the day-to-day administration of relief. Other functions were added to the duties of the boards, in particular those under the Public Health (Scotland) Act 1867 (30 & 31 Vict., c.101), which included the regulation of lodging houses, removal of nuisances,

construction of sewers, water supply and the control of infectious diseases. They were given the power to appoint medical and sanitary inspectors and to form special drainage and water districts. The public health powers of boards in the landward area were transferred to county councils by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1889 (52 & 53 Vict., c.50). Special drainage districts and water districts were transferred to sub-committees of county councils. Parochial boards and the Board of Supervision were replaced by wholly elected parish councils and a Local Government Board for Scotland under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1894 (57 & 58 Vict., c.58). The new councils acquired a few additional functions, including the power to acquire buildings for public offices, ground for recreational purposes and the administration of rights of way. They could also take over the administration of some parish trusts. Parish councils were abolished by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1929 (19 & 20 Geo. V, c.25), which transferred their functions to the county councils, district councils and town councils.

Administrative history: Perth and Kinross District Council was established under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 (c.65). The Act established a two-tier system of local government with nine regional councils and 53 district councils. Three islands councils (Orkney, Shetland and Western Isles) performed the functions of district and regional councils. The new district councils were quite distinct from the district councils which had existed from 1930 to 1975. Perth and Kinross District Council was elected in 1974 and acted as a shadow authority until May 1975, when it assumed its full powers. It was the successor authority to Perth and Kinross County Council, Perth County Council, Kinross County Council as well as the burghs of Aberfeldy, Abernethy, Alyth, Auchterarder, Blairgowrie and Rattray, Coupar Angus, Crieff, Kinross, Perth and Pitlochry. District councils’ main responsibilities were: district courts (under the District Courts (Scotland) Act 1975, c.20), building control, burial and cremation, cleansing, conservation areas, countryside (some regional responsibility), development control, environmental health, housing, leisure and recreation, libraries, licensing, local planning, museums and art galleries (with the regional council), parks and tourism. The regional authority for Perth and Kinross District Council was Tayside Regional Council. Perth and Kinross District Council and Tayside Regional Council were abolished in 1996 under the terms of the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1994 (c. 39) and replaced by Perth and Kinross Council.

Justices of the Peace for the County of Kinross

Date(s):

1738-1975

Level of description: Fonds Extent and medium of the unit of description: 1.50 linear metres

Context area Name of creator(s): Officials of the court Administrative / Biographical history: The justices of the peace first came into existence in Scotland in 1587 (Criminal Justice Act 1587, c.57, APS, iii.458). Later Justices of the Peace Acts of 1609 (c.14, APS, iv.434) and 1661 (c.338, APS, vii.306) dealt with the powers and functions of the office. JPs did not become an important administrative force until the eighteenth century. The Act of Union in 1707 (Act for rendering the Union of the Two Kingdoms more entire and complete: 6 Anne, c.6) led to an attempt at extending the powers enjoyed by the English justices of the peace to Scotland, but in Scotland JPs never obtained the prominence that they had in England.

JPs had civil and criminal jurisdiction, wide-ranging but not dealing with serious business. The criminal jurisdiction was mostly confined to preservation of the public peace, with sheriff courts achieving dominance in criminal matters. Civil jurisdiction included the power to regulate the wages and conditions of servants and other rural workmen. The Small Debt Court was an important extension of their judicial role (following an Act of Parliament in 1795: 35 Geo. III, c.123, confirmed by the Small Debt Act 1800: 39 & 40 Geo. III, c.46), which permitted the suing for debts of only a few pounds, but the loss of small debt jurisdiction to sheriff courts in 1825 led to a decline in JPs' court business. General administrative business included oversight of weights and measures, roads, and carting regulations; and later the JPs' role extended to militia recruitment, administration (albeit limited) of the poor law and vagrancy, theatre and friendly society licensing, and early factory safety legislation. Licensing had been the remit of JPs from the start but they only had the right to grant licences to sellers of ales and spirits, not the right to take them away. The Alehouses Licensing Act 1756 (29 Geo. II, c.12) gave JPs more specific powers over licensing. They were to hold an annual session to grant and renew licences outside royal

Page 1 of 16

JUSTICES OF THE PEACE FOR THE COUNTY OF KINROSS JP21

burghs, which after 1765 were held regularly after the introduction of an annual inspection of licensing records by the government. Separate licensing court records are commonly found. The Liquor Licensing (Scotland) Act 1828 (9 Geo. IV, c.58) gave the justices the power to divide counties into districts for the purposes of licensing.

In the nineteenth century the justices of the peace functions tended to decline. The Local Government (Scotland) Act 1889 (52 & 53 Vict., c.50) transferred many of their administrative powers to the new county councils including the regulation of weights and measures and gas meters, but left their licensing and judicial powers unchanged. Their remaining administrative powers comprised licensing of tradesmen (eg pawnbrokers) and proprietors where a fee was paid, which included game dealers and gunpowder retailers. Under the Licensing (Scotland) Act 1903 (3 Edw. VII, c.25) Licensing Courts were to be constituted, whose membership would (in counties) be partly JPs and partly elected councillors. The Children Act 1908 (8 Edw. VII, c.67) gave certain powers to JPs to deal in criminal cases of children under 16. The Children and Young Persons (Scotland) Act 1932 (22 & 23 Geo. V, c.47) further strengthened JPs' role in juvenile courts. The children's hearing system replaced juvenile courts as a result of the Social Work (Scotland) Act 1968 (c.49).

The District Courts (Scotland) Act 1975 (c.20) established district courts with wider powers, in which JPs sit, with a legally qualified clerk to provide advice. Justice of the Peace courts were abolished on 16 May 1975 by this Act. The district courts are based on local authority areas and financed by the relevant local authority.

The justices of the peace were originally appointed by the king and his council, and office-holders were mostly drawn from major families, although no particular qualification in rank or property was required. From 1707 JPs were appointed by the Lord Chancellor of Great Britain, but in 1955 this duty was transferred to the Secretary of State for Scotland by the Transfer of Functions (Justices of the Peace) (Scotland) Order, 1955, no. 240. Landowners continued to be heavily represented as a group amongst JPs. The whole of the JPs in a county made up the commission of the peace. JPs sat at four different types of session: general, petty, special and quarter sessions. Quarter sessions were meetings of all justices in the county,

Page 2 of 16

JUSTICES OF THE PEACE FOR THE COUNTY OF KINROSS JP21

occurring four times a year on specific dates to hear cases and make administrative decisions. From 1741 these meetings were to be held in the head burgh of the county. Petty sessions were held as required during the year. General sessions were adjourned quarter sessions, and special sessions were quarter session meetings but for a specific piece of business. Not all JP courts were well organised, however, which has impacted on the quality and quantity of surviving record.

Creator Information Montgomery family 1801The Montgomerys of Stanhope claim descent from Robert Montgomery of Giffen (fl early 15th century). The first Baronet of Stanhope was Sir James Montgomery (d 1803) who was the second son of William Montgomery of Magbiehill, Peebleshire and was created a baronet in 1801. He was succeeded by his son Sir James Montgomery (1766-1839) who was, like his father, MP for Peebles, and also served as Lord Advocate from 1804-1806. Through his second marriage in 1816 to Helen Graham (d 1828), younger daughter of Thomas Graham of Kinross and Burleigh, the estates of Kinross and Burleigh passed to the family. On his death he was succeeded by his son Sir Graham Graham-Montgomery (1823-1901) who added his mother's name to the family name. Sir Graham was Lord Lieutenant of the County of Kinross and was succeeded by three of his sons, Sir James Gordon Henry GrahamMontgomery (1850-1902), Sir Basil Templer Graham-Montgomery (18521928) and Sir Charles Percy Graham-Montgomery (1855-1930). The estate was then passed to a cousin, Sir Henry James Purvis-Russell-HamiltonMontgomery (1859-1954) whose first son, Sir Basil Purvis-Russell HamiltonMontgomery (1884-1964) became 8th Baronet. Sir Basil served in the First World War with the New Zealand Forces and spent much of his life in that

The 9th Baronet of Stanhope, Sir (Basil Henry) David Montgomery was born in 1931 and was Henry Keith's son.

Steedman Family Papers, 1523-2002 MS204 Reference Code: GB/252/MS204 Title: Steedman Family Papers Dates of creation of material: 1523-2002 Level of description: Collection Extent of the unit of description: 4 boxes containing volumes and papers, 3 photographic albums and 4 rolls of maps and charts Name of creator: Various members of the Steedman family and Hilary Kirkland. Administrative History: The Steedman family were tenant farmers around Kinross, although branches of the family also live in England and Germany. By the nineteenth century, several members had joined the professions, through the services and commercialism. The interest by various members of the family into their genealogy was awakened by John Stedman of Bath and remains an interest to this day. Archival History: The following is an account of the provenance of the collection, taken from an introduction to the catalogue of the papers, arranged and compiled by Hilary Kirkland: ‘These papers were at one time the property of Thomas Steedman, 18221904, Agent of the Clydesdale Bank in Kinross. On his death on 19 July 1904 they passed to his nephew, John William Steedman Wilson, W.S. of 15 St. Bernard’s Crescent, Edinburgh. He died in 1960 at the age of 94 and the papers passed to his son-in-law Dr. Robert (Robin) Gaskin Inkster who lived at North Queensferry until his death in 1980. By that time Dr. Inkster had already begun to bundle up Kinross papers from amongst many others and to pass them to me, Hilary Kirkland, the wife of his nephew, Allan Wilberforce Kirkland. I began the task of collating and editing sections of the archive, which was in great disarray after being stored unsorted in a house which was burgled, with boxes having been tipped onto the floor by the intruders as they searched unsuccessfully for valuables. I began by contacting the National Register of Archives (Scotland) and many of the papers were surveyed there by Dr Margaret Young, [NRA9(S) 1522.] At that time (c.1978) I wrote two papers - on the agriculture and the schools of Kinross-shire in the 19th century. Copies of these were lodged with the Scottish Country Life Archive, then in York Place, Edinburgh. I then surveyed the literature relating to Kinross and made a referenced bibliography, which is included in this collection. Some years later, after contacting both the Archives of Scotland and the National Library of Scotland, and on their advice, I sent a number of documents, which had been collected by Thomas Steedman because they bore Royal signatures, to be sold at Sotheby’s in London. We believe that he

Page 1 of 30

Steedman Family Papers, 1523-2002 MS204 had purchased them from the Muniments room at a 19th century displenishing sale at Taymouth Castle. I donated a small pamphlet printed in memory of Eben Kirk who emigrated from Kinross to America, to the National Library of Scotland. At one time he was a clerk in the Edinburgh & Glasgow Bank, Kinross. I also donated a15th century writing on vellum, relating to an enquiry into the care of the coygerach of St Fillan, to the National Museum of Scotland, so that it could be kept with the coygerach already in their care. Many of the papers in this archive relate to the family of Steedman (with variant spellings) and these record details, which may be of interest to genealogists. The archive includes: family and property documents - tacks and tochers, wills, sasines and indentures; correspondence; working papers roup rolls, memos and scroll copies of office records public papers - minutes of local clubs and societies, newspapers, military papers. These came to me disordered and out of sequence. I have tried to arrange them in a logical way. It has been a great privilege to be responsible for this archive and I have found the task of sorting it out to be interesting and rewarding. It consists of papers which have survived because they once seemed important to those who wrote and read them or, sometimes it seems, by sheer chance. I have added some explanatory notes [in square brackets]. Each one, however trivial, adds something to the unique history of a small part of Scotland, and enhances the story of one family over a long period of time.’ Immediate source of acquisition: See files PKA 139 and PKA 146 Scope and content: Tacks and marriage contracts, 1523-1816; sasines relating to Easter Nivingstone, 1733-1816; farm accounts and contracts relating to the Dick family, 1780-1794, 1871; papers and ephemera relating to the Stedman genealogy, 1844-1978; personal letters, c.1846-1891; Thomas Steedman’s domestic, education and personal papers, 1749-1871; legal papers relating to other properties and relatives of the Steedman family. 17811892; Thomas Steedman personal, business and domestic papers, 18431899, 1927; parochial assessments, minutes of Kinross-shire Agricultural Society, membership details of Kinross-shire Fishing Club, financial papers of Kinross Power Loom Company, receipts from local traders, copies of The Kinross-shire Advertiser, farming roup rolls and inventories, 1809-1897; discharges, draft summons, bank business letters and receipts, 1843-1901; military lists, passes, programmes and receipts, 1860-1891; portrait and group photographs, 19th and early 20th century; ephemera, 1835-1946; maps and photocopies of maps of Kinross-shire, c1654-1920s; papers written and compiled by Hilary Kirkland, Edinburgh, based on the archive, c1980-2002 Appraisal, destruction and scheduling information: All the papers have been rehoused.
