Kirk Arbory - 1703 Composition Book

This is transcribed from the 1760 copy of the 1704 document (MM microfilm RC2)

The copy is on successive pages of a bound book - the folio numbers fo  presumably correspond to the pages of the original from which this 1760 copy was made.

Values of rent are given in Roman numerals (transcribed as Arabic) but the column values (indicated = ...) are in Arabic numerals. Entries were standardised - I have separated out the initial name of each entry for ease of reference. In a few places the microfilm copy was too dark to read the text.
