A survey of men in Perth, Scotland liable to serve in the militia has just become available online.
Ancestry.co.uk has put online the survey papers, which are held by the Local Studies Department of the AK Bell Library in Perth. Ancestry says:
“In 1802 a form was sent out to householders within the Burgh of Perth requiring them to list the name of every man in their house aged 18 to 45, who was liable for service with the militia. The returns may include:
- Name of the householder
- Occupation of the householder
- Street address
- Names of any inhabitants eligible for service
“Names of women appear only if they are the householder.”
