Alexander and Jean Buchanan initiated a ranking and sale of land that had belonged to Robert Hall of Fulbar. The land was possessed by John Farquhar-Gray of Kilmardinny and Jean Hall, each of whom claimed to have a heritable security on the property. The Buchanans objected to these securities and raised a second process against Farquhar-Gray and Hall to challenge their claims. While the proceedings were pending, the Buchanans petitioned the court to sequestrate the land in question. Farquhar-Gray and Hall argued that it would be improper to sequestrate land that was already in their possession, and that the parties’ rights should be determined in the other proceedings.
