A full description of the item, or transcription of item text, if possible.
Lord Kinnaird recently presented a petition to the Court of Session - Second Division, craving authority to sell the lands of Kirkton of Abernyte, Easter Newton, and teinds thereof, ( Note G Nicoll - a teind was a tithe, or the tenth part, derived from the produce of the land for the maintenance of the clergy).
all in the county of Perth, to his son the Hon Arthur Fitzgerald Kinnaird at the price of £24, 800, or at such other price that the court might fix.
Lord Kinnaird at present holds the lands in vitae of an entail granted in 1867 by his late brother, George William fox Kinnaird. The lands and teinds in question are along with the lands of Rossie already burdened with debt to the extent of the proposed price and an agreement has been entered into between him and his son with reference to the sale thereof.
The Lord Ordinary ( Fraser) refused the prayer of the petition.
His Lordship did not think it would be just to impose upon the entailed estate of Abernyte a burden which it bore at present with the now disentailed estate of Rossie.
