‘Inventory of the writts of the lands and baronies of Gleneagles & Haldane’ containing in a late eighteenth-century hand transcripts and summaries of charters and other formal documents, and notes of others concerning the Haldane claim to the earldom of Lennox., [?1724, or earlier.]

Identifier: MS.20002

Scope and Contents

The title is given on folio i.

The manuscript appears to be a copy, presumably incomplete, for the text breaks off at the top of folio 81 verso, of an ‘Inventar of the writes and evidents of the baronies of Gleneagles and Haldane’ compiled by 1724 ('The Haldanes of Gleneagles’ by J Aylmer L Haldane, page 343). The documents copied are arranged chiefly in chronological order, the first being a charter of King William (which has suffered falsification: see ‘Regesta Regum Scottorum’, ii number 375) and the latest complete document a special retour, 1722, of Mungo Haldane of Gleneagles (died 1755). About half of the volume is blank.
