He had also a charter dated at Torphichen, 3rd Feby., 1461-62, of the Temple Lands of Letter. On the 2nd October, 1472 . . . the bailie of Halden of Gleneagles gave sasine to ' Thomas Buchanan and Robert Makcalpyn of the lands of Ballvol and Camquhele.' In 1476 he purchased from Haldane of Gleneagles the lands of ' Kepdory, Carbeth, Ballawoul,' etc. In 1482 he conveyed Carbeth to his son Thomas, ' Ballyvow ' to his son Walter, and Kepdory to Robert his eldest son and heir apparent. In 1477 he acquired the Temple lands of Ballikinrain, in 1484 he had a charter from William, Lord Graham of Middle Ledlewan (the Moss). Besides these lands he bought Drumikil, half of which he gave to his son Robert in 1496. These charters and others prove that Thomas Buchanan was a success-ful money-making man.
