Address: Barnhill Poorhouse Springburn Glasgow
Note: In the past, tuberculosis was called consumption, because it seemed to consume people from within, with a bloody cough, fever, pallor, and long relentless wasting. Other names included phthisis, Greek for "consumption" and phthisis pulmonalis.
Note: The Barnhill Poorhouse, had also opened at Springburn in 1850. Paupers who could not support themselves were sent here by the Parish and were obliged to work at jobs such as bundling firewood, picking oakum (separating tarred rope fibres) and breaking rocks. In 1905 the Glasgow Poorhouse in Townhead closed and its inmates went to Barnhill, making it the largest poorhouse in Scotland. In 1945 it was renamed Foresthall House and Hospital and was thereafter used as a geriatric hospital and residential home. It was demolished in the late 1980s and a private housing development now stands on the site.

Note
1841 Census: Barony, Age 25, Cotton Loom Weaver, Born Ireland 1851 Census: 24 Broad Street, age 35, married + 5 children 1861 Census: 20 Union Place, age 46, married + 3 children 1871 Census: 65 Nelson Street, Scotland age 55, married to different wife +3 children 1881 Census: 30 Portland Street ?, age 66, married + 2 children Died from Pneumonia There is some confusion about Adam depending on how you approach him. Going up the tree he appears on Scottish census records one of which say born in Lisburn. These census records suggest he was born in 1815. Also his marriage to Selena Ferris suggests a dob of around 1815 However going the other way and coming down from Adam 1785 and Eliz McDonald the accepted date of Adam's birth is 3-3-1811. It seems the source of this date is a family bible. So one of these dobs must be wrong OR there are 2 different Adam Doggarts. The date of marriage to Selina is also a mystery. On children Selina and Arthurs birth cert it gives marriage date as 11 Oct 1841 which seems to be wrong as there is no record of it in the records office. There is one for 26-9-1841 however.
