The Statistical Accounts of Scotland (Ayton chapters)

The Old (or First) Statistical Account of Scotland was published between 1791 and 1799 by Sir John Sinclair of Ulbster. The New (or Second) Statistical Account of Scotland was published under the auspices of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland between 1834 and 1845. These first two Statistical Accounts of Scotland are among the finest European contemporary records of life during the agricultural and industrial revolutions. A Third Statistical Account of Scotland was published between 1951 and 1992. The Ayton chapter was written in 1986 and can be accessed below.
