The town of Forres is of very ancient origin. During the ninth and
tenth centimes it was a place of considerable note, having been fre-
quently the temporary residence of the reigning Kings of Scotland,
some of whom lost their lives there. The original charter having been
burned in time of war, no distinct date of the royalty can be given ; but
a new charter was granted by James IV. in 1496.
The Arms of the burgh consist of the Patron Saint, St Lawrence,
in a long habit, standing on a brander ; a Chaplet round his head ; at
his right side a Crescent, and at the left a Star of six points ; holding
in his right hand a book, with the motto, "Jehovah tu mihi DeusJ'
quid deest," — Jehovah is my God, what is wanting.
Burgh population (1861), 3508 ; inhabited houses, 715 ; annual
value of real property in 1862-3, £7245 ; Parliamentary constituency,
171 ; municipal do., 155 ; weekly market, Wednesday.
