Inver's Millennium History -2000 YEARS OF HISTORY IN ONE BOOK

Compiled by the pupils of Inver Primary School.

Beauty, they say, lies in the eye of the beholder and I’m sure history does to a great extent as well. So what follows is the ‘beholding’ of the history of the village of Inver and the immediate area, as seen through the eyes of the pupils, both past and present.

Statistical Accounts

On the 25 May 1790, Sir John Sinclair, Baronet of Ulbster in Caithness wrote to over nine hundred Parish ministers throughout Scotland asking them to contribute to a Statistical Inquiry by answering as best they could,a series of one hundred and sixty-six Queries respecting each Parish.

The New (or Second) Statistical Account of Scotland built on the previous work carried out by Sir John Sinclair for the First Statistical Accounts by including the knowledge of local doctors and schoolmasters. The Second Statistical Accounts were published between 1834 and 1845.
