Measuring Worth
    Adam Rankine died in Dumfries in 1859 and and when his belongings were inventoried the total was 2268 6s 3d.
But how much is that actually??
That's what this site is for, I entered the amount that I wanted to check, the start year and the end year and clicked the button . Presto it calculates the value.
And in my case the answer was 1,530,000.00! calculated using the rise in average earnings. Pity I didn't get any of it, it was a bit before my time.

    The National Archives Currency Converter
The same example as above gives a value of 132,764.33
I think I prefer the Measuring Worth site
