Pollokshields Heritage History

New Catalogues For Pollokshields Records

As part of a larger project working on Glasgow’s public health records, the records of all thirteen ‘annexed’ burghs have been re-catalogued. The annexed burghs are those independent burghs that were absorbed into Glasgow as it expanded. The records of Pollokshields and Pollokshields East were included.

Amongst the many interesting items in the catalogues are the ‘founding documents’ of both burghs. These give the names and addresses of the householders who first petitioned for their burghs to be established.

The catalogues are available as pdfs
