There is a similar document, dated 6th May 1823, HERE.

The beneficiaries of these accounts appear to be the sons and sons-in-law of William Oliphant; b.abt. 1728 or 1738 (there is some confusion about William’s DoB in the secondary sources I’ve seen!). I attach a Tree, and a Report of William Oliphant’s closest descendants as .pdf files.
