The attached are for 2 baptisms.

The 1702 one states;
Malcolm McGiben musician and burges
Does the 1705 really state;
Malcolme McGiben Mussick? marster?

The burgess list published by the Scottish Record Society states;
McGIBBON, Malcolme, burgess, musician, in respect of his singular art of playing on the hoyboy and other instruments, gratis 4 dec 1696.

I am also having trouble finding an image of a hoyboy.

Can anyone help me, please.

Regards
Grantley

Hi grantley,

Yes, it does seem to say
Malcolme McGiben Mussick Maister

PS: The hoyboy seems also to have been known as the shawm - and there are images of the shawm on Google.
Hoyboy deriving from 'hautbois' or oboe.
