    1832 · The Scottish Reform Act

    Age 3

    The Scottish Reform Act was introduced by Parliament that introduced changes to the election laws in Scotland. The Act didn’t change the method of how the counties elected members but adopted a different solution for each pair of counties. Ultimately, it brought about boundary changes so that some burghs would have more say for the country than others.

    Name Meaning

    Scottish: variant of Jamison . It probably originated in the pronunciation of James as Jamis, but the Scottish preference for this form of Jamison will have been reinforced by association with Jamie, the Scots pet form of James .
