Over Bohespic - Blair Atholl Parish (district 3)

The Enumerator did not distinguish between Nether Bohespic, Tighnacoille, Gascan, Upper Gascan, Tighmore or Over Bohespic. All were grouped together as 'Bohespic'. The families have been grouped under the various homesteads by assuming that the entry numbers in the Enumerator's list follow a direct course from north to south. Additionally this census return has been compared with those from 1841 and 1861 and it would be expected that families generally remained in the same homesteads.
