Records of J.L. Anderson and Co., Solicitors, Cupar

Scope and Content

The records contain a mixture of bound volumes and bundled papers, now boxed up, and seem to relate to the normal range of business undertaken by a solicitor in a small town. There are therefore papers relating to the estates of deceased persons, conveyancing, small businesses and individuals on whose behalf the solicitor was active.
