Another Scottish Valuation Roll

On 1st April last year ScotlandsPeople published the 1915 Property Valuation Roll on which we found five clan members. These included George MacIlhago at 40 Murano Street, Glasgow, paying between £9/9/- and £17/15/- per annum as a Tenant Occupier. On 29 January this year the 1905 Valuation Roll followed which also included George at 40 Muram Street, Glasgow, I suspect the same address.

ScotlandsPeople as now published the 1895 Valuation Roll which includes just two clan members, one of which is again George, a Watchman, at 45 St. Mungo Street, Glasgow in Glasgow Burgh (Ref: VR102/460/57). The Proprietor is named as Mrs. Margaret Phillips to whom George paid 9 shillings and 5 pence rent.

The second name is one which does not appear on either the 1905 or the 1915 Valuation, that of Henry MacIlhagga who was renting a house at 8 Westbank, Glenboig, New Monkland, Lanark County (Ref: VT107/153/771). He was listed as a Labourer, who paid a rent of £4/11/- per annum. This may have been the Henry McIlhaggo who in 1895 was 24 years of age and who died four years later. This fact could account for the lower rent being for a smaller appartment suited to a single man, and also for no Henry being found in the subsequent 20th Century Valuation Rolls.
