Items 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 17, 18 and 19 belong to the
18th century town before it was superseded by Inverurie as
the more important town in the neighbourhood as a result of
first the canal and later the railway.
The charter of Old Meldrum as a Burgh of Barony dates from
1672 but the foundation of the village was considerably
earlier, c. 1634.
In the 1690's Old Meldrum contained 16 merchants while Inverurie
had only four and Insch and Kintore one each. Old Meldrum was
then entered by the Mill Road from the South and the Cowgate
from the north. The Market Square was larger then than now, a
row of houses and shops being built on the north side early in
the 19th century.
