(1) 1488: Granted Sorbie Castle Lands by King James IV of Scotland. Owned them
until 1494. Odo HANNAY thus became the first actual owner in fee of the

HANNAs had had to pay rents to them. When the lands became part of the
crown lands, the king was free to grant title to his subjects.[alice-boyd.FTW]
