Note The estate of Duncrub is a burgh of barony of which the village of
Dunning is part. Lord Rollo the proprietor is the baron. The
jurisdiction is still exercised by a baillie chosen by the baron
but the legal business done by him is very limitted being the decision
of a few petty cases within the barony. On fair days a staff of constables
chosen by the baron from his tenantry, attend at the fairs armed with
Lochaber axes and all litigants are brought before the baron baillie.

[Note] Note.
It is not competent to appeal from the baron baillie's to any other court except to the baron or
to the Court of Session i.e. the Sheriff or his substitute, or Justice of Peace cannot review a case
after the decision of the baillie

[Note] Note. It has been considered Scarcely worth
noticing the barony of Duncrub on the ordnance plans,
therefore the boundary has not been perambulated
