THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES

THE “KINTYRE” FILES - 02b - 1768 to 1995
http://www.nas.gov.uk/onlineCatalogue/

An online search of the files related to Kintyre, the steamers and services on the Clyde and West Highlands and the files
related to Knapdale and Kilberry produced nearly 7,000 results, the main problem being that these files, presented online in
tabled batches of ten, need to be ‘re-tabled’ so that they can be presented in chronological order, a long and time-consuming
process.

Though the results of the ‘re-tabling’ process are not ‘pleasing to the eye’, the successive addition of ‘re-edited’ tables
distorting the widths of individual columns and Microsoft Word programs steadfastly refusing to correct the columns widths to
uniform widths, it remains that the work(s) are at least ‘serviceable’ in that, probably for the first time, the user can gain any
proper historical view of ‘Kintyre On Record’, from the 1300’s onwards to at least the 1990’s.

Not helping in these mateers of ‘uniformity’ is the fact that, any additional detail found on the files, that seen if one clicks on
the file references, has been added to the file entries, rather than require users to do this for themselves and the detail, at a
glance, often suggests to the user that it is worthwhile actually going to Edinburgh to further explore particular files.

The original idea had been to list all 7,000 ‘Kintyre-related’ files in a single document but, in view of the results of processing
the first ‘Kintyre-related’ file, a single such document might run well in excess of 1,500-pages and, because of its size, be
unlikely not only to upload to the internet but too be impossible for those with slow, ‘dial-up’ internet connections, be
impossible to download too.

Only by splitting the various files into, at least initially, geographical groupings can these files be put online and, given that
they could be uploaded and downloaded in Microsoft Word format, anyone so inclined could then merge all the various tables
and, selecting the first column of the then completed ‘composite’ table, the column with all the uniformly listed dates, by
using the ‘Table/A-Z Sort’ on the Microsoft Word program’s toolbar, it MIGHT be possible to chronologically list all the file
entries, THERE ARE NO GUARANTEES THAT PROCESS THIS MIGHT WORK and the end product would undoubtably look ‘messy’,
even though ‘serviceable’ enough to use using ‘’Edit/Find’ facility on the Microsoft Word program’s toolbar to look for entries of
particular interest.

ADMIN HISTORY

The Commissioners of Northern Lighthouses are vested with the
superintendence and management of all lighthouses, buoys and beacons
throughout Scotland and the adjacent seas and islands and the Isle of Man
under Section 195 of the Merchant Shipping Act 1995. They are a corporate
body, known as the Northern Lighthouse Board (the Board), constituted by
Section 193 of that Act. The Commissioners presently consist of: the Lord
Advocate and the Solicitor General for Scotland; the Lords Provost of
Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen and the convenors of the Councils for
Highland, and Argyll and Bute; the Sheriffs Principal of all the sheriffdoms in
Scotland; a person nominated by the Lieutenant Governor of the Isle of Man
and appointed by the Secretary of State; and up to 5 co-opted
21
Commissioners.

Origins

In 1782 a number of severe storms highlighted the lack of lighthouses around
the Scottish coasts. This prompted George Dempster of Dunnichen, MP,
provost of Forfar, to raise the matter of lighthouse provision at the Convention
of Royal Burghs in 1784 and subsequently in the House of Commons. The
resulting Commons committee recommended legislation, and the Act of
Parliament of 1786 (26 Geo III c.101), which founded the Commissioners of
Northern Lighthouses, followed. The act appointed 19 commissioners:

The Lord Advocate and the Solicitor-General for Scotland
The lords provost of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen, and the provosts of
Inverness and Campbeltown
The eldest bailies of Edinburgh and Glasgow
The sheriffs of Edinburgh, Lanark, Renfrew, Bute, Argyll, Inverness, Ross,
Orkney, Caithness and Aberdeen.

The act gave them powers to borrow money, purchase land, and to levy dues
from ships to finance their activities. It authorised them to construct four
lighthouses:

Kinnaird Head
North Ronaldsay
Scalpay (Eilean Glas)
Mull of Kintyre

Kinnaird Head lighthouse (near Fraserburgh) was the earliest to be built, with a
light first exhibited on 1 December 1787 (this building is now open to the
public, in conjunction with Scotland's Lighthouse Museum). The other lights
were completed within three years.

Extension of Powers

The powers of the Commissioners were extended by Acts of Parliament in
1788 and 1789 (28 Geo III c.2 and 29 Geo III c.52). The latter gave them the
general power to construct new lighthouses as they deemed necessary out of
surplus dues collected. All the Commissioners' lighthouses in Scotland (apart
from the four named above) were constructed under this provision, which was
22
confirmed in subsequent acts. The 1789 Act also gave them the power to
enlarge the number of Commissioners by electing the provost of the nearest
burgh, or sheriff depute of the county in which a new light was built. A local
and personal Act of 1798 (38 Geo III c.57) constituted the Commissioners a
corporate body as the Commissioners of the Northern Lighthouses.

Purchase of the Isle of May light

The earliest lighthouse in Scotland was constructed on the Isle of May by
James Maxwell of Innerwick and John Cunninghame of Barnes, under a patent
from Charles I of 1635 (Acts of the Parliaments of Scotland, V, pp. 494-5). An
1814 Act (54 Geo III c. 136) empowered the Commissioners to purchase the
May light from the Duke and Duchess of Portland, its then owners, and the
present lighthouse was then built and illuminated from 1816.

Jurisdiction extended to the Isle of Man

Until 1815, the Isle of Man lay outwith the jurisdiction of any of the lighthouse
authorities. To ensure lighthouse coverage there, a Local Act of 55 Geo III c.67
gave the Commissioners of the Northern Lighthouses powers to erect two
lighthouses on Man, and subsequently the Calf of Man and Point Of Ayre lights
were illuminated from 1818. The Merchant Shipping Act of 1854, ss. 389, 404
gave the Commissioners general powers to construct lighthouses on Man.

Supervision by Trinity House

The Commissioners retained unfettered control over the construction of new
lights and seamarks until 1836, when, by the Act of 6&7 Wm IV c.79, ss. 42 3,
their proposals for new lighthouses were made subject to the approval of
Trinity House. The aim of this was 'the attainment of uniformity of system in
the management of lighthouses'. As the funding arrangements of the
Commissioners and of Trinity House remained separate at this date, the
latter's oversight referred to the character, rather than the cost of the work.

Supervision of local lights and seamarks

Local lights and seamarks were generally erected and maintained under
special local Acts of Parliament or burgh charters. The earliest light on the Tay,
at Buddonness, was constructed under an Act of the Privy Council of 24
February 1687 (Register of the Privy Council, XVI, p. 616; SRO ref: PC2/23) by
23
the Fraternity of Masters and Seamen in Dundee (later Trinity House of
Dundee). On the Clyde, trustees were first authorised by the Act of 29 Geo II c
20 to build a light on Little Cumbrae (records of the Clyde Lighthouses Trust
are held at Glasgow City Archives, Ref.: T-CN40-44,T-CN).

Section 38 of the Act of 6&7 Wm IV c.79, s. 38 made lights and seamarks
established by these and other harbour and local authorities subject to the
inspection and supervision of the Commissioners of Northern Lighthouses.

Board of Trade's powers

Section 7 of the Merchant Shipping Law Amendment Act, 1853 provided that
dues collected by all the lighthouse authorities (ie Trinity House,
Commissioners of Northern Lighthouses and Port of Dublin Corporation) should
be aggregated into the Mercantile Marine Fund, administered by the
Paymaster General, and payments to the authorities from the fund were made
subject to the approval of the Board of Trade. In addition to this financial
oversight, section 21 of the Act increased Trinity House's powers over the
other authorities. This meant that they could direct the Commissioners to
build, maintain, alter or remove any lighthouse within their jurisdiction. Trinity
House's directions could, however, only take effect with Board of Trade
sanction, and after giving the Commissioners the opportunity to make
representations to the Board.

The Merchant Shipping Act of 1894 confirmed the Commissioners of Northern
Lighthouses as a corporate body and as the general lighthouse authority for
the lighthouse area defined as 'Scotland and the adjacent seas and islands,
and the Isle of Man'. The other general lighthouse authorities were Trinity
House for England and Wales, and the Commissioners of Irish Lights. It also
consolidated the relative powers of the Commissioners, the Board of Trade and
Trinity House.

Funding arrangements for the Highlands and Islands

From 1891, the Western Highlands and Islands Commission recommended the
construction by the Commissioners of Northern Lighthouses of a number of
lights which did not fit the usual criteria for new lights, in that they were too
local in their benefits to be financed from the Mercantile Marine Fund (from
1898, the General Lighthouse Fund). The costs of erecting and maintaining 17
lights, two beacons and one buoy were therefore met by the Treasury from the
24
Congested Districts Fund, under the management of the Congested Districts
(Scotland) Commissioners.

Removal of Trinity House's powers

Section 33 of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1979 removed Trinity House's powers
of control and inspection over the Commissioners. It also empowered them to
elect up to five members, but specified that they or existing Commissioners
should have special knowledge of nautical matters (amending the power given
by Section 18 of the Merchant Shipping Act, 1974).

The Records
The records divide into two main groups:

1. NLC1-20 Headquarters Records. These comprise the annual reports,
minutes etc. of the Board of Commissioners itself (NLC1-2 - the only extensive
series of records to survive from the 19th century), and the records created by
the board's central departments, principally those overseen by the Secretary
and by the Engineer, as follows:

The Secretary to the Commissioners was responsible for services to the Board
of Commissioners, personnel matters, finance and general administration (see
NLC3-10). The Secretary's department recorded its business in the extensive
series of Correspondence and Report volumes (NLC3/1-2), and various files. It
kept the records of the Board's personnel (NLC4). It also issued various series
of orders and circulars to shore stations and lighthouses (NLC5), and issued
'Notices to Mariners' to the seafaring public.

In 1893 the Secretary had under him an Accountant and Cashier, an Examiner
of Accounts, three Clerks, and the Superintendent and his staff.

From 1956, the Secretary's title changed to 'Secretary & General Manager'. A
separate General Manager was appointed from 1964.

The Superintendent was responsible for the routine activities of the
lightkeepers and other outdoor staff, routine maintenance of lighthouses,
stores, ships and shore stations and boat attendance. He had under him an
Assistant Superintendent, a number of District Superintendents. By 1972, he
was reporting to the Engineer-in-Chief. A Marine Superintendent, in charge of
25
the Commissioners' ships, was appointed in 1970.

The Engineer had overall responsibility for the construction and maintenance
of lighthouses seamarks and buoys, for radio and radar installations, and for
inspections of NLC and other lights. His department generated various series
of bound files (see NLC11). His title was changed to 'Engineer-in-Chief' in
1972.

It is worth noting that members of the Stevenson family served as Engineers
to the Board from 1808-1938. Many of the family's records, including material
relevant to their work for the Commissioners, are held by the National Library
of Scotland (see under associated material).

2. NLC20-111 Lighthouse Records. This group comprises records originating in
or provided for the manned major lighthouses themselves. These include the
orders to the keepers from the Board, returns (monthly, wreck and
meteorological) which they were required to make to the Board, visitors
albums, and records of the routine running of the lighthouse. All NLC
lighthouses have now been automated.

Genealogical information

The main sources of genealogical information within these records are the
Registers and Lists of Lightkeepers and Establishment Books (NLC4/1-2).
However, the Board Minutes (NLC2/1) often note the employment, dismissal,
retirements of, and accidents to, individual employees, especially in the 19th
century. The General Orders (NLC5/1) detail disciplinary offences of individual
keepers, and the Secretary's Correspondence and Reports (NLC3/1) also
contain material on individual employees (see especially under subject
numbers 93).

Kilcalmonell and Kilberry Kirk
Session 1821 – 1977
Description - The two ancient
parishes of Kilcalmonell and of
Kilberry were united prior to
the year 1560, with each
parish retaining its own church
after the union. The churches
of both Kilcalmonell and of
Kilberry formerly existed as a
prebend of Lismore. In 1965
the united charge was divided,
1821 CH2/1423
and on the same date the
parish of Kilcalmonell was
linked with Skipness, and
Kilberry established a link with
Tarbert. Both kirk sessions,
which remain active today, sat
within the Presbytery
of Kintyre, until the
restructuring of the
Presbyteries in 1976, when
they became part of the
Presbytery of South Argyll.
