Notice biographique

The Leith Buchanan Family were the owners of Ross Priory at Gartocharn on the shores of Loch Lomond. The Buchanan Family had been associated with this area since the 11th century, when they gained the lands of Cameron and Drummikill. The 'Lands of the Ross' were purchased by William Buchanan in 1625. The male line died out and the heiress of the Ross married Sir Alexander Wellesley William Leith in 1830.

Portée et contenu

The collection appears to comprise legal, estate and financial records of the Leith Buchanan Family and their antecedents. The documents, mainly from the 18th and 19th centuries, relate to land and property in the area around Drymen. Although most refer to title deeds and the purchase or transfer of property, some documents list rents paid and crops grown on the family estates, and a few list the debts owed by individuals, perhaps at the time of their death.
