This case encompasses two phases of a ranking and sale brought by George Hay, Marquis of Tweeddale, against the estate of the late James M’Harg of Keirs. In the first phase of the case, the Court of Session considered technical questions relating to the claims of a creditor, also named James M’Harg. In the second phase, the Court considered a challenge by creditor James M’Harg’s to the Lord Ordinary’s interlocutor of ranking.
