The first public building erected in the New Town was paid for by the sale of forfeited estates by the Crown after the failed Jacobite Rebellion of 1745.

"This we consider as by far the most beautiful of Mr Adam's designs. Most of the plans of this eminent architect, either from justice not being done in the execution or from the choice of materials, of which the fabricks are composed, appear far more beautiful in the drawing, than when realized; but the reverse is the case with the register office, which excells the ideas we form of it from the plan." -- Hugo Arnot, The History of Edinburgh, 1799
