Old English Transcription. Kilsyth, Scotland 1650.
« on: Sunday 07 February 16 16:09 GMT (UK) »
Hi guys, Here I have a Scottish Baptism for William Young in 1650. It is the lower baptism in the image, below the blue line, that I am interested in. It is in Old English but with a hint of Scottish and/or Latin? Can someone help me with the missing words, please. ‘William’ and ‘same’ are abbreviated. I wonder if the word before his wifes name of Euphane may be a Latin definition for being his wife? Many Thanks, Dave.
 
……..  Wm (William) baptized to Mathow
Young in Lenzie parish ……
in ………  ………. Euphane Bankeire
in the se (same) parish …..  James …….
…….. Witness Georg Young Mathow
Willsone  Wittness (es).

Euphan is apparently a short but common nickname for Euphemia.

St Euphemia was martyred in 303AD....

Hi, Thanks both for your comments. Jenny, you are probably right as I cannot find a marriage for the parents.
I am still curious about the first word which appears before each Baptism. - Anyone else with ideas ?
Thanks, Dave.

As an aside I have Bankiers in Kilsyth, I wonder if Euphan is related.
