Arngask par. was formerly split between Fife, Kinross & Perth but was made wholly within Perthshire in 1891.

Annafrech has had a multitude of spellings (see "Kinross-shire and it's owners"). At the time of Thomas GORDON the owner (but not necessarily the occupier) was one of the Flockhart family.

Ext. 1841 Census of Kinross, Kinrossshire:
(a) Description of Enumeration District 6: "So much of the Parish of Kinross as lies on the South and South West thereof including all the Houses on the Great North Road from Thomas Gordon's to Gairney Bank inclusive then Hatch Bank, Annafrech, Rushfield ...".
(b) The entry for Hawthorn Vale: "Thomas Gordon, age 59, carrier, born [in Scotland but not in Kinrossshire]".
Hawthorn Vale is shown on the main North-South road on the OS 1st Ed map and is still a residence today.
(c) The census has no other mention of Rushfield (maybe it was empty) and Annafrech is occupied by a William Normand.

Thomas Gordon, hd, wid, age 69, carrier, b. Arngask
