Unsorted legal documents, 1631-1859

 Sub-Series — Box: CLX-A-1120
Identifier: Coll-1383/1/19

Scope and Contents

This section contains unsorted legal documents dating from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, many on vellum, in English and in Latin. It is mostly composed of instruments of sasine, inventories, charters, registration documents, etc.
About a third of the documents seem to be related to the Bennet Family, who lived near Kinross in the 18th and 19th centuries. It consists of inventories of writs, instruments of sasine, charters of renounciations and resignations, and other legal documents dating from 1631 to 1796. One 1733 charter mentions a 'Baronecy of Dowhill'. It is unclear if the rest of the documents are related to this family too - further research is needed.
