This week's poser is the last part of four taken from the register of testaments of the Argyll commissary court, 1675 (National Records of Scotland, CC2/3/1 page 28).
The handwriting is typical for the 17th century and the clerk was consistent in the way he formed his letters. He always marked the letter u with a line above the letter. Watch out for phonetic spellings, st ligatures, the letter thorn and abbreviations. The clerk also used the following mark to indicate the end of a clause . Such marks were used to prevent a latter addition, insertion, to the document.
This week's question: who took responsibility for finding caution on behalf of the executors?
