Admin note: In order for anyone to help you need provide a little more information, such as location and approximate dates. It would also help to indicate how your query relates to family history.

Every property has its owner recorded in the VALUATION ROLLS, as well as the current tenant, if different.
CENSUS returns do not tell you of owners, merely who was resident in the property at the date of the census.
Transfers of property are recorded in the SASINES REGISTERS for the jurisdiction concerned. The current owner will have a sasine which lists all the previous owners, as far as was known by the lawyer dealing with the sale/purchase.
The history of a property is NOT genealogy, but social history.
