      Date: 26 July 1996 I met him in Kirkcaldy in 1996
      As to the Disposition and Settlement of John Auchterlonie, mason, mentioned in the 1827 Sasine, I am afraid that this Deed has not been recorded in any of the Series that I have checked. Basically, there are 4 Series in which a Document of this sort could have been recorded. (1) Sheriff Court of Fife, Register of Inventories (SC20/50); (2) Sheriff Court of Fife, Register of Deeds (SC20/34); (3) Books of Council of Session (RD5), which is the Register of Deeds kept by the Court of Session in Edinburgh, the highest Civil court in Scotland; (4) The Register of Deeds of Kirkcaldy Burgh Court (B41). There are indexes to the first 3 Series, while I have compiled an index to the Deeds in the Burgh Records.........Registration was voluntary, and there was a registration fee. In the late 18th Century and early 19th Century Fife Deed warrants, which I have seen, they carry an nine pence imprest stamp, so it would cost at least that to register the Deed, plus legal fees. So, it was quite an extensive process.
