Lorn Archaeological and Historical Society talk : Dunollie Rent Book
Posted by CHARTS
This December talk from LAHS will explore the Dunollie Rent Book. Presented by archivist Jennifer Shaw, this talk will provide a detailed insight into the economic relationship between MacDougall Clan Chiefs and their tenants preceding the Jacobite era in Scotland.
"This fascinating document was discovered in the main house at Dunollie in 2017, tucked away in a locked drawer of the MacDougall family’s monuments chest. The find was quite a breathtaking one, as the contents of the drawer, let alone the Rent Book, were not known in living memory.
Our excellent and dedicated volunteer archivist, Jennifer Shaw, spent over a year meticulously transcribing the contents, which were written in the secretary's hand"
Saturday 10 December, 2.30 pm, Rockfield Centre.
