  • 0.00 linear metres (Whole)



  • Scope and Contents

    The charter and legal material contained here is of importance as giving the continuous history of a landed family in Fife from the 13th to the 18th century. The Halkett family appear to have risen partly on the decline of the Lochores of Lochore. By 1431, the former are having transumpts made of charters of the early 13th century granted to the latter (Ch.6018-6019).

  • Arrangement

    The numeration of this subseries (described in the Scottish Record Society inventory, 1932) has been preserved, except that whereas it formerly ran from 1-836, it now runs from Ch.6001-6836. Eleven items are missing: the original numbers 46, 351-356, 358, 360, 376, and 599.
