    I LOVE this stuff over there.... iirc from my legal studies many decades ago, "ownerless" lands in Scotland may well revert to The Crown by virtue of escheat - and this is the good bit - it reverts to "The Queens's and Lord Treasurer's Remembrancer"...... seriously, nobody could possibly make this stuff up....

    We did make it up though, or should I say they did make it up. And while all this archaic tomfoolery may have a lovely romantic tinge from where you sit, it's not always such fun living under it!
