Poser 365 - rental roll for the regality of Dunfermline, 1607

This week's poser is taken from part of a rental roll for the regality of Dunfermline in 1607 (National Records of Scotland, RH11/27/41, page 5).

It lists the estates in the part of the regality around Dollar. Their annual rental value is given in in pounds, shillings and pence (Remember there are 20 shillings per pound, 12 pence per shilling and therefore 240 pence per pound).

 Dollar estate tax roll (National Records of Scotland, RH11/27/41, page 5).
