of Auchterarder and Memorials of Srathearn
Decreet of Lyning in Favour of John Malar 1615
Apart from its style and
Scottish legal phraseology, the following decreet of lyning is interesting,
as showing that, in the time of King James VI., Auchtcrarder, while
possessing a Provost and Bailies, had a Town Clerk, a Court House, and
Register of the Burgh Court. The house, yard, and half croft therein
referred to, still belong to John Malar's descendant.
