58 Poisoning at the Poorhouse!

A small entry in the 1864 London Pharmaceutical Journal opens up a number of fascinating issues relating to the social life of the residents in Glenbucket at that time

It concerns an entry from the Aberdeen Journal, about a case of poisoning in the glen.

Accidental Poisoning by Strychnia.
On Thursday February 25th Sophia Tulloch, servant at the Poor House at Belnaboth, parish of Glenbucket, who had been rather unwell for some time, went to the grocer, Mr Chree's, at Sunnybrae in the same parish. The grocer's wife, a most respectable woman, who was acting at the time in his absence, unfortunately gave the amount asked, five grains of strychnine by mistake for calomel. When the young woman went home she swallowed the dose which was immediately followed by the usual effects great agony and a rapid dissolution She was dead in less than fifteen minutes Deceased was aged 27 years The case we hear is in the hands of the authorities.”
Aberdeen Journal

This brief article produces a lot of leads to other fascinating snippets of Glen life at that time.

1. Provision of medical care
In the absence of professional medical help from Doctors and Pharmacists, who were rare and expensive in those days, treatment for minor maladies was obtained by seeking medicines from local sources. Here the patient Sophia Tulloch was seeking Calomel or mercurous chloride. Mercury became a popular remedy for a variety of physical and mental ailments. It was once used medicinally as a purgative, cathartic, liver stimulant, and to eliminate parasitic worms, but is rarely so used today because it is readily decomposed into metallic mercury and the very poisonous mercuric chloride on exposure to sunlight or if heated in the presence of moisture.Calomel was given to patients as a purgative until they began to salivate. However, it was often administered to patients in such great quantities that their hair and teeth fell out.

It shows that even if she had got the right medicine ithe unfortunate girl would also have got a poisonous product.

Secondly it shows the lack of regulation and safety in prescribing what is a major poison.

Strychnine is a poisonous alkaloid that is obtained from seeds of the nux vomica tree (S. nux-vomica) and related plants of the genus Strychnos. Strychnine has been used in rodent poisons and in smaller doses as a stimulant in veterinary practice. It increases the reflex irritability of the spinal cord, which results in a loss of normal inhibition of the body's motor cells, causing severe contractions of the muscles; arching of the back is a common symptom of poisoning. Strychnine rapidly enters the blood, whether taken orally or by injection, and symptoms of poisoning usually appear within 20 minutes. The symptoms begin with cramps and soon culminate in powerful and agonizing convulsions that subside after a minute but recur at a touch, a noise, or some other minor stimulus. Death is usually due to asphyxiation resulting from continuous spasms of the respiratory muscles.

The unfortunate girl received a fatal dose of Strychnine which presumably was being kept as a rat poison. We do not know what happened to the unfortunate Mrs Chree.

2. Shops in Glenbuchat
The main shop in Glenbuchat from the early 1900 was at the purpose built shop at the Craigton beside the Church and Manse. This shop was open until the early 1970’s.
Prior to that there appears to have been a shop at Sunnybrae Farm. The picture shows what appears to be the shop in the wooden building in the middle. Perhaps deliveries were being made on the sleigh. There was also a small shop at Badenyon , where a small shop can be seen in front of the farm house. Finally there was the ‘Fly Cart’ , a travelling shop that took good around the isolated farmsteads. Again, travelling shop vans were regular in the glen until the late 1970’s. There was also a small shop at the clachan at Easterbucket.

These small shops would sell a wide range of items including some pharmaceutical remedies.

3. Who were the Chrees?

(See comments below)
From www.cree.name

Chree is an unusual name but research shows that there were numerous and notable in Glenbuchat up to 1945. The surname Cree first appears in Scottish records in something like its modern form in the 1450s. There is evidence that it derives from a place name, probably either Creich in Fife or Crieff in Perthshire. An indigenous Irish Cree line, it is believed, arose in around 1690 from the well-known Irish name Creagh. In England the Derbyshire the Cree line originates from a name change from Mackree to Cree first recorded in 1678.

A Crie family from Angus moved in to Glenbucket in the Highlands of Aberdeenshire in the Eighteenth Century. For some reason, although the father was a minister of the church and therefore literate, the spelling was changed to Chree. Perhaps due to their geographical isolation, this spelling was retained until the present day.

The Chree family occupied Sunnyside Farm and ran the local shop from there. In Worrall’s Directory of North East Counties, John Chree Glenbucket is recorded under Grocers & Drapers.

The Chree Family Tree is noted below. You will notice that it is a large and very illustrious family. Included in the family are the following university graduates with impressive cv’s:

4. What about poor Sophia Tulloch?

Sophia Tulloch was the daughter of Peter Tulloch of Badenyon.

The family tree is noted at the end of this page.

Sophia was aged 27 at the time of her death and had had an illegitimate child in 1857 that died soon after birth. She was noted as a domestic servant in the 1861 census but in the newspaper report is reported to be a servant at the poor house.


5. What about the Poor House?

The mention of the Poor house at Belnaboth is fascinating as I can find no record of it in any of the county poorhouse records on line. There is an excellent site giving full details about Poorhouses in Scotland

Belnaboth was a significant Clachan at that time. One of the houses was for a time a “Poor House”. The poor house was on the bend of the road down through Belnaboth and the base is now the base of a agricultural shed. I am told the fireplace can still be seen in the walll inside the shed. From the 1851 Census we have evidence of paupers and a Paupers Nurse at Belnaboth therefore probably confirming the presence of a Poor House of some description.

Belnaboth 1851 Census
Rachel Young Head U 84 Pauper (formerly house servant)
Ann McHardy Nurse U 58 Paupers nurse (formerly House Serv)
William Fraser Head Widr 59 Pauper (formerly Road Contractor)


The following gives details of Poor House rules in 1850.

Interestingly, in Shaw’s Union Officers Manual 1847, Mr William Chree is noted as Inspector for the Parish of Glenbucket and therefore was involved in the administration of the Poor Law.

SHAWS UNION OFFICERS MANUAL
A work which shall clearly point out the duties of union officers and others engaged in the administration of relief to the poor without being at the same time unnecessarily burdened with legal technicalities having been long wanted has led to the publication of Shaws Union Officers Manual The Editor has endeavoured in his notes on the duties of the officers as prescribed by the rules of the poor law commissioners to give such familiar explanations of the various rules as may serve to guide the officers to a correct perception of their respective duties and indicate the course which they ought to adopt on all doubtful points which may arise in practice


From the Scottish Poor House Rules 1850
So long as relief to the poor was looked upon, both by the givers and recipients, as the fulfilment of a charitable, rather than a legal, obligation, poorhouses were naturally regarded merely in the light of almshouses for the reception of the more deserving amongst the aged, infirm, or friendless poor. The inmates were therefore, generally speaking, of but one class, consisting wholly of persons whose destitution and disability were beyond a doubt, and by whom admission to the poorhouse was held to be a favour or indulgence of which they might at any time be deprived by their own misconduct. The whole establishment was managed in a corresponding spirit. The inmates had regular liberty-days once a-week, when they went to visit their friends, or to amuse themselves; and it was not uncommon to find some of them begging on the streets or highways. In like manner, once a-week their friends were freely admitted to visit the inmates in the poorhouse, which, on such occasions, exhibited a promiscuous throng of paupers and their visitors mingled together. The friends of the paupers were permitted to bring to them, in the house, tobacco and such other articles of luxury (excepting ardent spirits) as they were able to procure. The inmates were induced to engage in some kind of industrious occupation, by a weekly payment of part of the proceeds of their work, to be expended as they might think proper on their liberty-days; and one of the first petitions presented to the Board of Supervision was from the male inmates of a poorhouse, complaining that the weekly sum allowed them as pocket-money was unreasonably small. It was deemed unnecessary to enforce strictly any system of rules or discipline where flagrant breaches of order or decorum were punished by expulsion from the house. But, while poorhouses ought always to afford a fit and safe asylum for helpless and friendless paupers, they must now be prepared to receive a new and wholly different class of inmates.
The proper subjects for admission into a poorhouse form two separate classes, easily distinguishable from other classes of paupers and from one another. Poor persons who are not comprised in one or other of these two classes will, with more advantage, both to the parish and to themselves, be admitted to out-door relief. For any systematic attempt to refuse all relief, except such as may be received within the walls of the poorhouse, would excite a baneful spirit of discontent amongst the poor, and that part of the population with which they are most closely connected; without effecting any saving to the funds of the parish; and far from being countenanced, would scarcely be tolerated by public opinion in this country.

The first of these two classes of paupers, for whom relief in a poorhouse is preferable to out-door relief, comprises destitute persons who are incapacitated, by youth or old age, or by disease, whether mental or physical, from contributing in any way to their own support, and who, at the same time, from being friendless, or weak in mind, or from requiring more than ordinary attendance, cannot be adequately maintained and cared for by means of outdoor relief, except at a cost exceeding that for which they can be provided for in the poorhouse.

The other class of paupers, for whom relief in a poorhouse is preferable to out-door relief, and to whom it is peculiarly applicable, either as a test or as affording the means of needful restraint, consists of applicants for, or recipients of, relief of every kind, whose claims are doubtful:— such as, persons who are suspected of concealing or of misrepresenting the extent of their means and resources, whether arising from their own exertions and earnings, or from the aid afforded by friends or relatives; or persons who, though not able-bodied, are yet not so disabled as in the opinion of the parochial board, to render them incapable of maintaining themselves and their dependents, if any, without relief from the parish; but more especially all persons of idle, immoral, or dissipated habits, who, if admitted to outdoor relief, would squander their allowance in drunkenness and debauchery, or otherwise misapply them. Poor persons may not be allowed to starve because they or their parents are vicious, but the law leaves to the bodies to whom its administration is entrusted, a choices to the manner of affording relief; and if parochial boards desire to discourage indolence, to detect imposture, to check extravagance, and to reform or control vice, they must make work, confinement, and discipline, the conditions upon which pauper of this class are relieved.

Very nice site!
Added by Alexf470 on 29 June 2010
I was very interested to read "A Crie family from Angus moved in to Glenbucket in the Highlands of Aberdeenshire in the Eighteenth Century. For some reason, although the father was a minister of the church and therefore literate, the spelling was changed to Chree. "
Our first record of a Cree in Angus is the baptism of Alexander Cree, son of William Cree in 1718 at Liff, Benvie and Invergowrie. William had further children baptised in the same location, namely, Patrick (1720), John (1721), and Charels (1723). I would be very interested in the source of information relating to the minister who migrated from Angus to Glenbucket. Clearly we would very much like to link the Chree family to the Cree/Crie family that originated in a very small area of Perth.

I have undertaken some more research into the Chree family of Glenbucket. It would now appear that the Chree/Chruie family was present in Strathdon in the mid-1600s. This information is available on the IGI index and the original parish registers can be viewed in the Scotlands People website. It would now therefore appear that the origin of the Chree family of Glenbucket may not have been in Angus but far closer to home in Strathdon. I hope that this information is of assistance.

Great web site! Lots of new information for us about Chree family history. The paragraph above, "A Crie family from Angus... until the present day." is lifted from our web page at www.cree.name/scotland/spelling.htm. More important, it is now shown to be incorrect (See Trevor's comment of 23 March 2012). Your web site and Trevor Cree's work in the IGI have shown that the Chree name in Glenbucket/Strathdon pre-dates that proposed migration. There was therefore no migration from Angus and, if there is a link between Cree/Crie and Chree/Chruie, it must go back much earlier

Thank you for your prompt reply and is was very helpful. What an interesting article and is helps us picture life when our ancestors lived in Glenbuchet (Rannies).

My great, great, granda was James Chree ( born at Sunnybrae Farm 1820 ) His daughter Annie ( married Alexander Hay) was my great grandmother and her daughter Isabella (Belle , married William Tawse) my Gran. She nursed her aunt Isa ( Annie's sister ) in her latter years and she died in Rothes, at the home of my Gran.
I remember visiting family in Inverurie with Gran, many years ago. I think it was a flat in the square. It may have been something to do with the family of her sister Beatrice Bridgeford. Her other sister Teen was always a big part of our lives.
