I think the ‘squiggle’ after ‘Pain of Rebellion’ must be ‘etc’
I have looked this up, and found the full phrase is usually ‘Under Pain of rebellion and putting (him) to the horn’.

Can anyone tell me what it means!
I think a ‘pain’ was a fine, but ‘putting to the horn’?

Sounds nasty!

Many thanks

Many thanks everybody for your replies.  :)
I thought it must have been a Latin term I didn't recognise - thanks for the explanation GR 2. Add it to the list!

This is from a document in the Court of Session at National Records of Scotland.

Just a couple of words here .They are underlined in the document - not by me.

The case concerns a weaver who impersonated another weaver to get his work. This is an appeal by the manufacturers to not have to pay him.

...Letters in Russels name which
are ready to be produced 3tio
In all Contracts betwixt
Master and Servant there
is a De?    ?  We
accordingly chose and
engaged Russel for our
workman so that if another ..


The ‘3tio’ I take as '3rd’ - it is the third point the manufacturers have made for their case against him.

Any ideas?
Thanks

No, you have to be at an LDS centre to view - tried it :(


No this is not so.
I looked at it today for you.
At a friend's, logged into familysearch with my user name and password, and was able to view the film.
You don't need to go to a FS library. Anyone can view it at home as long as you are registered with an account. Very easy, and FREE!


Well I am logged in and can't view it...

To view these images you must do one of the following:

Access the site at a family history center.
Access the site at a FamilySearch affiliate library.

Well how very very odd!  :-\
I definitely could see the whole film. No little lock next to it, but the usual magnifying glass and camera icon.
A real mystery!

Heraldry Crests and Coats of Arms / Re: Family Crest Interpretation
« on: Monday 19 February 18 20:52 GMT (UK)  »
The description of the Blazon and Crest are written in the langusge of heraldry - not “very old English” - many of the terms are French words.


Blazon = shield
Azure = blue
Argent = silver
A chevron engrailed = a chevron having semicircular indentations along the edge,
so a ‘chevron engrailed argent’ is a silver chevron with semicircular indentations, on the blue background.
Couped = cut off at the neck
Gules = red
So 3 red bucks’ heads.
A chief = a split off part of the background at the top of the shield
Per fess = at the bottom pointed end of the shield shape
Ermine is the pattern (properly called a ‘tincture’ and not a ‘pattern’).
Ermine is the coat of the stoat in its winter colours - white and black.
You can get this pattern with black on white, and also with white on black, so I think the section is divided into 2, with each the reverse pattern.

So I read it you have a blue shield with a wavy lined silver chevron.
3 red bucks heads along the top,
A section at the bottom divided into two, one black on white ermine pattern, and the other white on black.

(I am quite willing to be corrected by those with more knowledge of heraldry than I have!).

Here is an example of a chevron engrailed, and ermine tincture (not your colour of chevron, but gives you the idea).

Unfortunately it doesn't give any more information in the St Thomas register. The vicars, or clerks, of St Thomas were men of few words!
The baptism of Daniel, mother Sarah, just follows in order after the baptism of Zaheriah, son to William and Sarah.

I see there is also a baptism of a MAry Mander 23 Oct 1803, to William and Sarah, and one for a Hannah Mander 17 May 1807, 'mother Sarah' again. No more information again.

If you send me a PM on here with your email address (you're not allowed to put emails addresses on ordinary posts), I can send you what I found.

Familysearch have the film. No 378764 for births 1794 - 1812. https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/253264?availability=Family%20History%20Library
Looks as if you can view it at home (you need to be signed in - free to register), but unfortunately my computer is playing up and won't do it!

You could look through old Town/City Trade Directories to see if you could find a 'stay making' firm.
There are lots on here - http://specialcollections.le.ac.uk.
From the University of Leicester.

This is the 1851 one for Bristol.

I think there are also some on Ancestry.

West Lothian (Linlithgowshire) / Re: Torpichen Parish in 1730
« on: Thursday 15 February 18 22:26 GMT (UK)  »
I wouldn't be too worried about the difference between the Alexander baptised 1731, and your estimated date of 1735. I don't know where you got the date of 1735 from, but many people didn't know exactly when they were born - there was no such thing as a birth certificate back then, and those with many children presumably found it quite difficult to keep track of all the years when they were all born as time went by.
