Organisation of the register
Despite speaking of a 'register' there are in fact several different series of registers.

1599 - 1609: the incomplete Secretary's Register, divided into counties.
From 1617: a particular register of sasines for individual counties and a general register of sasines which covered all of Scotland, except the three Lothian counties. The general register was also used to record details of properties that were spread over more than one county.
1869 onwards: The system was restructured in 1869, to establish one general register arranged in county divisions.
All these registers are in National Records of Scotland (NRS) under the catalogue reference RS.
I have tried searching for a Sasine with a date around 1817 for a James Porterfield of Burntshields and can't find it.

Thanks,

Dave
