  • Scope and Contents

    The notes concern the progress of titles of Buchanan (folio 8), abstracts of the Darnley Lennox writs (folio 15) and transcripts (most of which appear to be in another hand) of original documents in the Montrose Charter Room, several of which relate to the ancient earldom of Lennox (folio 30). The volume is undated but the contents do not appear to date before 1833 (folio 8 verso). Parts of the volume were not used: folios 2-7 (intended for an index which was never compiled), 23-29, 62-66 and all after folio 76 are blank.
