More random info ....

Also in the pre-1855 Book, there is a reference to a record of 'Scandal' held at NAS.

See: http://catalogue.nrscotland.gov.uk/nrsonlinecatalogue/details.aspx?reference=CC8%2f6%2f393&st=2&tc=y&tl=n&tn=n&tp=n&k=george+jarvie&ko=a&r=&ro=c&df=&dt=&di=y&dc=&dco=s&t=&to=o&

"Scandal - Robert RAMSAY brewer in Bathgate v. George JARVIE brewer & feuer in Bathgate & John JARVIE tenant in Boghall. 1762"

There are another few mentions of Jarvies, but if any of them are related, I haven't a clue.

Anne  :)

Indeed it is.

I haven't come across contra hereditatem iacentem before. 'Contra' is Latin for 'against', 'hereditatem' is the accusative case of 'hereditas' which is Latin for 'inheritance' and 'iacentem' is the adjective 'lying' agreeing with 'hereditatem' so the phrase is something like 'against the inheritance resting to' someone. So this looks like Corbett pursuing his case against John Jarvey by going for his son, who is due to inherit from him.

Also interesting that the fourth document mentions David Simpson as well as George Jarvey. If George Jarvey sr was the brother of John Jarvey in Balbardie, then George Jarvey, son of John the sequestrated vintner, was first cousin once removed to David Simpson's wife Mary Jarvey, who was potentially the heiress to the estate of George Jarvey if all her brothers had died.
