Help with 1777 Scottish marriage record
« on: Tuesday 13 March 18 01:00 GMT (UK) »
I need help with this 1777 marriage record from Barony, Scotland - the words after James Bennie - possibly farmer, Dalmarnock? Also the word after Jean Young - Cal?

Many thanks
Jan

Is it possible for you to post a scan of more of the page so we can compare capital and lower case letters?

The first letter looks like 'F' but then it appears to be followed by a lower case letter with a vertical upward stroke on the left hand side as in 'b', 'h' or 'k' but that wouldn't make a word. :-\

I think it is Farmer. Here's a larger snip :

Clerk seems to have  a flourish at the end of some words and Farmer has a flourish.

Examples of captial Fs.

Add - We were  taught to write Fs like this with less of a flourish

Thanks for the replies. Farmer fits in with what I know of this family. The entries seem to read name of groom, occupation, place, name of bride, place, so the last word would be the bride's place but I don't recognise it at all.

I've been puzzling about the bride's residence for a good while. It looks something like Cala?wide?
