  • Scope and Contents

    Most of these transcripts and extracts, which were made between circa 1794 and circa 1824, are in the hand of Lieutenant-General G H Hutton: most of the rest are in the same hand as Adv.MS.9A.1.4. Many of the transcripts were made from originals and copies in possession of William Maule of Panmure, who was created Baron Panmure in 1831: many of the rest were copied from documents in possession of Thomas Thomson and at the Scottish Record Office, General Register House.
