Help with handwriting documents (Feu charter & Sasine) pages 1 to 3
« on: Thursday 03 January 19 15:53 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone! Iím from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I have the copy of a Feu charter from Lumsden of Auchindoir to George Murdoch, and of a Sasine granted by the last one mentioned to Margaret Alexander.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to read those, the handwriting so unintelligible to me have been an obstacle in that mission.
Could someone please help me transcribe the important or prominent things in these documents? Iíll be very grateful!

The images are very 'fuzzy', but the handwriting is not difficult.

Could be an 'h' at the end of his name Wiggy. Hard to tell  with the writing being so fuzzy. :(
Looking at some of the other 'h's, they seem a bit more open?

Just gone back to the very first image and checked.
The title of the entry (at the bottom of the LHS first page). would indeed seem to be an 'h' - so 'Murdoch' santudm. You might like to change the ones in the bits I've already done.
