William Brown, Merchant In Edinburgh, and Andrew Ross, Master of The Woollen Manufactory At Musselburgh v Robert Earl of Morton: HL 3 Feb 1720

King’s annexed Property – A person, to whom part of the annexed property had been granted, creates a heritable security thereon: his grant is afterwards reduced, and the decree confirmed by an act of reannexation: an act of disannexation is subsequently made, and a new grant of part of the premises passed to the representative of the family of the original grantee, though not his heir: this does not revive the heritable security granted by him.
