Poor Law Records

Board of Supervision poor relief appeals1
The Board of Supervision was established under the 1845 Poor Law Act. One of its tasks was to hear appeals by paupers against inadequate poor relief granted by Parochial Boards. These appeals were recorded in the Board of Supervision minutes. Cases were often heard over an extended period. The minutes may contain a variety of information, including about other family members, medical conditions and other circumstances.

has anyone bought any of these records from Oldscottish.com or have a copy from elsewhere ?
