Aberdeen City Archives

Aberdeenshire records

Since local government reorganisation in 1996, the historic documents of Aberdeenshire Council have been administered by Aberdeen City Archives at its Old Aberdeen House branch. Major holdings include:

Commissioners of Supply records
The minutes and accounts of the Commissioners of Supply document the administration of counties by landowners until the establishment of county councils in 1890. Records survive for the counties of Aberdeen from 1654, Kincardine from 1762 and Banff from 1772. The records also contain the minutes and accounts of the turnpike road trustees and commutation road trustees. These bodies were charged with building and maintaining the north-east’s roads from the 1790s to the 1870s.
