I have seen cases where people have owned certain lands and rented others, so it is POSSIBLE that the Waneburns were living there as tenants, but I agree that it seems more likely that they were land holders.

Unfortunately, I think that the land-holding records are probably located in an archive in England (if, indeed, they still exist at all), so the likes of you and I (located, as we are, on the opposite side of the world) are unlikely to have the opportunity to find those records. Even if I could find them it wouldn't do me any good as they would be written in Latin, and I can't read Latin!
