Date of Decision: 1767
Abstract: The pursuers claimed that they were the heir apparent to the ancient proprietors of Shian and sought to recover the estate from the defender, Lord Breadalbane. The pursuers claim that they are the heir apparent to Archibald Menzies, who possessed the estate before he was killed at the battle of Culloden in 1745, leaving the estate without a proprietor. The Earl claimed that he took lawful title to the estate through a process of adjudication over the payment of annuities from another proprietor.
