It happens that one of the properties in King Street, recently purchased by the Corporation, had been in the possession of successive generations of the same family since 1727, or three years after the street was opened, a very exceptional circumstance in connection with house property in a commercial city. --1 Purchase No. 23 ; acquired by James Nisbett, late deacon of the wrights in Glasgow, 1727, and sold by J. More Nisbett of Cairnhill in 1898. --[12]
