OLIPHANT papers – Proprietors of the East half of Big House on Head of the Harbour

For some context, and an index to these documents, please SEE HERE.

If you can help with the transcription of these documents please get in touch.

There is a similar document, dated 15th November 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.
