Note:- Earl of Mar's Wheat' forms part of certain feu-duties or crown rents, payable in grain, and belonging to the Lordship of Stirling, which were the subject of a Royal grant at an early period to the family of Mar. Almost all the proprietors of the lands out of which those feu duties were payable, have purchased this burden from the Mar family, but it has not been found practicable, in some few instances, to identify the names in this disjunction with the present proprietors. Lord Dundas has long been in the practice of paying the cess for the whole, and it is believed, that even such proprietors as have purchased the feu-duty from Mar, still continue to make some yearly payment to Lord Dundas. It is doubtful whether his Lordship is superior of the whole, or if such of the proprietors as have acquired right to the crown rents, have thereby also become the crown vassals, and are entitled to have the sums contained in this disjunction, added to the valued rent of the respective lands of which they themselves claim the superiority.
