Location: Edinburgh, Scotland
George Alexander owned a good deal of property in Edinburgh, and the transactions as recorded in the Scottish Sasines give us some insight into his family.
In 1868 he purchased a number of ‘lots' when the Grange Estate was auctioned for development. At this time he was living in Grange Loan.
George died in 1892, and from then on a number of transactions deal with the handling of his estate.
In particular, a record in 1896 detailing the setting up of a consortium to manage his estate gives the addresses and/or occupations of its ten members.
Similarly, a record in 1901 also gives this information.
Note: The Sasine Register is the Scottish register of title deeds of all properties in Scotlsnd.
