After this, and the little bit at the top of Image 7, it is all in latin. No doubt the legal part, and I can see ‘Act of Parliament’ in there, but if you want a translation, I suggest you post that part again in a new post, and hopefully a Latin specialist will see it.

This has been a fantastic job by goldie, well done!

After this, and the little bit at the top of Image 7, it is all in latin.

It's an official 'signing-off' clause, roughly translated ...

And I, George Cumming, Clerk of the Diocese of Aberdeen and Notary Public, with royal prerogative and that of the Lords of the Council and Session, according to the tenor of the Act of Parliament, because all and singular the premises mentioned were stated, carried out and performed, and (because) I, together with the aforenamed witnesses, was present there in person and saw that all and singular the premises were thus carried out, and (because) I have seen, known, heard and taken note of them, I have therefore completed and registered this present Public Instrument in this form, faithfully written by another hand on this and the four preceding pages of parchment and duly stamped, and I have signed and subscribed (it) with my customary and usual mark, name and surname, in faith, confirmation and witness of the truth of all and singular the premises, as requested and required.

Goldie, I thank you most deeply and sincerely for helping me to transcript this document, and for the time and trouble you have gone to do this! Now, I know a further more about George Murdoch and will be able to localize those pieces of ground in Lumsden where he probably sometime lived with his family!  ;D
Many thanks to Bookbox too for the help!  :)
Do any of you know why the signatures of George Murdoch and Harry Leith Lumsden, Esq. of Clova do not appear in this document?
