1702 Ayrshire Marriage Doc - Need a hand with some words
« on: Friday 01 January 21 22:40 GMT (UK) »
Hello and thanks in advance...

My grandparents married in 1702 and there is quite a bit of info on their marriage document. I get the gist of it but there's a bunch i'm missing. For instance I cannot discern whether William McClounan's occupation beside his name says weaver. There are a bunch of words beginning with W on whole document that I can't decipher such as the one directly below . 2 lines down from the word I had thought was weaver.

Any help appreciated.

The couple told the session clerk that they intended to marry on 12th May 1702. At the same time they consigned a Jacobus and two crosses (silver coins) as a guarantee of their good behaviour and serious intent. They were married on 2nd June. On 14th April 1703 the bride's father got the money back, there having been no scandal attached to the marriage.
