Cockburn v. Duncan 1802 Heritage, Rents, Deeds Janet Cockburn Haldane, Margaret, Euphemia and Elisabeth Haldane, daughters of Mr. George Haldane, brought an action to recover the payments and rents over the lands of Geneagles. George Haldane had inherited the real estate from his uncle Robert Haldane by virtue of a deed of tailzie and bonds of provision. The defendant, Viscount Duncan, argued that the pursuers’ allegations were unsupported because Robert Haldane has given to him the right over those properties.
