I. — The Valuation Roll of Stirlingshire of 183 1 was drawn up by the late Mr. Robert
Campbell, Clerk of Supply for the County of Stirling, and is the result of much research.
It is founded on the Valuation Rolls of 1691 and 1802, which were the only duly certified
Rolls in existence when he began his work. Though not perfectly accurate, it is a very
valuable document. The valuation of Strathblane, as given here, is an exact reprint
of this Roll.

Note.— No Cess has been paid for this for many years, and it has not been found practic- .

able precisely to ascertain any particular Land or Subject to which the valuation can be
attached. According to the best information which has been got, the Duke of Montrose
appears to have been Heritable Patron of the Provostry of the Collegiate Church at Dum-
barton, to which Provostry, and Patrimony thereof, the tiends of the parishes of Fintry and
Strathblane belonged ; and it is supposed that his Grace, in that character, received certain
tiend duty from the Heritors, which was the subject of valuation in the Cess Roll, like Mar's
Tiend in Saint Ninians Parish, and others in the preceding pages ; and that the Provost,
who was appointed by his Grace, paid the Cess therefor ;— but when, by the augmentation
of the stipend of the parish, the whole tiends were given to the Minister, they were with-
drawn from the Duke, who, it is presumed, then ceased to pay the Cess for what was thus
taken from him.— The probability of the explanation now given, is considerably strengthened
by the fact that the whole tiends were given to the Minister by the augmentation modified
in 1793, and that no Cess has been paid since that year, while for that, and a considerable
number of years previously, the Cess was regularly paul by a person of the name of M'Leroy,
a writer in Killearn, who was understood to have received it from different persops, but he
having gone abroad, although inquiry was made, no information could ever be obtained, nor
any papers belonging to hhn recovered, which could lead to the discovery of the lands or
parties liable.

Note.— No. 4 is no longer an heritor, lialf of No. 4 having passed along with No. 6 into the hands of Andrew
Jameson and Christian Robison Brown, his spouse. No. 17 has acquired No. 11 and part of No. 4. Nos. 4 and 11 are
thus no longer separate properties, and there are now only 15 heritors. The valued rent for these properties is given
as they stood in 1883-84, as the old valued rent of the Kirklands (Broadgate and Muirhouse) has not yet been
definitely apportioned between Mr. and Mrs. Jameson and Mr. Ker. Nos. 18 to 38 have no valued rent, but they
appear as proprietors under the Act of 1854.
