Title: Scottish Record Office Index Number 46 - Index To Secretary's Register Of Sasines For Sheriffdoms Of Edinburgh, Haddington, Linlithgow And Bathgate Preserved In H M General Register House Volume VI [6] 1654 - 1660
Description: HMSO, Edinburgh, 1959, 1st edition. Cloth spined boards, F. 494pp, a fine copy. Hardback , no dustjacket. Index of the Sasines Register. This is a register of Deeds and Land Ownership, or more correctly as in Scottish Law only the Crown could own land outright, title to the use of land. An instrument of sasine is a legal document that records the transfer of ownership (usually a sale or an inheritance) of a piece of land or of a building. It will normally detail the names of the new and previous owners and will give a basic description of the property transferred. There will usually be an indication of the price paid for the property. Sasines can also give you information about family history, particularly where an individual is passing land to another family member, or where the family designation is revealed (e.g. 'John Campbell of X'). Sometimes information given in one sasine will give you clues as to earlier titles in the chain and so lead you back to the earlier history of the ownership of a building or piece of land.
