THE BARONAGE OF SCOTLAND: THE HISTORY OF THE LAW OF SUCCESSION AND OF THE LAW OF ARMS IN RELATION THERETO

When I came to consider a suitable title for the talk this evening I thought that as this is to be published so early in the year for the Great Jubilee and within a year of the founding of the Scottish Parliament, it would be appropriate that the subject should be one that spans the greater part of the millenium that has just ended, and relate to some legislative Act of the new Parliament. I therefore decided on the above title, as the origin of the Baronage of Scotland can be traced to the 12th century, and at the present time there is significant legislation regarding the Barony being considered by the Scottish Parliament. The legislation I have mentioned is The Abolition of Feudal Tenure etc. (Scotland) Bill. for more click here
