1. Freeholders of Angus & Kincardineshire

The term freeholders applies to persons holding their lands directly of the Crown, i.e. freeholders are tenants-in-chief, and may in some cases therefore be mere superiors of the lands, without possession of the right to the use of the lands. Before the Reform Act of 1832, they were the only electors of members of parliament, so the lists are also electoral rolls.

For landowners at the time of the New Statistical Account (ca. 1830 to 1845), see pages for the individual parishes.

Freeholders of Angus & Kincardineshire, at Michaelmas 1788

Ref: View of the Political State of Scotland in the Last Century: a Confidential Report: Political Opinions, Family Connections, or Personal Circumstances of the 2662 County Voters in 1788 edited by Sir Charles Elphinstone Adam of Blair-Adam, bart. (Edinburgh: David Douglas, 1887)

This source not merely provides the names of the land-owners of the time, but gives interesting insights into their standing and associations. The introduction to the work provides a very useful discussion of various Scottish legal terms, such as feu, wadset, retour, appriser, old extent, etc. Spellings are given here unaltered from the original.

Angus

The leading interests in this County are:

1Mr Maule of Panmure [1]a minor, son to the late Earl of Dalhousie, and brother to the present Earl, also a minor. He succeeded to the Earl of Panmure's [2] estate in this County, which is very great; but many of the votes created by the late Earl now look on themselves as independant. Hay Campbell, Lord President, is one of Mr Maule's acting Tutors.
2The Earl of Strathmorewhose father, the late Earl, and the late Earl of Panmure were on opposite sides in this County. The Earl of Strathmore has many connections, a natural interest, and a great estate in this County. At the death of his mother he will be in very opulent circumstances.
3Sir David Carnegie of Southeskhas a good estate and great interest in this County. He married a sister of Lady Cathcart's, and is Member for the Burghs.
4Mr Douglas of Douglasthe present Member, the brother-in-law of the Duke of Buccleugh and Lord Graham, has also a great estate and interest in this County.
5The Earl of Airliehas also a considerable estate and interest, but meddles little in politicks.
