I appreciate the suggestions.  What is the Heritage Club and what are the MLs and where can I locate them?  Thank you.

I have a couple more questions about the marriage document of James Renwick and Agnes Scot.  Who was the “session clerk” who collected the money?  A county or church official?  Where were the banns read so that the community could know about the upcoming marriage?
Thank you again for all this help.

In rereading all this information another question occurs to me.  What word or phrase in the document indicated that James and Agnes needed a cautioner?  What is the name of this person for the couple?
Is it one of the witnesses?  Thank you again for the explanations.  My grandparent father was born in Denholm in 1890.

I am trying to understand the paragraph that Goldie61 kindly deciphered.  My take is that James Renwick and Agnes Scot didn’t have the $2.00 at the time to pay for the marriage ceremony but in 40 days they will have the sum.  Then something about parties transgressions and the witnesses are George and William Brown.  Am I correct?  What am I missing?
Thank you again for your replies.

Hi, here is my second OPR document which is the baptism of the son of James Renwick and Agnes Scot (or is it Scott?).  I know that the baby, named James, was born on Sept 9, 1717 in the town of Ancrum? in the Parish of Temple.  The event is circled in yellow again, and now to see if the file will load.
