PREFACE. 

The present volume contains abstracts of the remaining protocols in 
Henry Giljsone's second book, and the greater part of the protocols in the 
first book of his successor, Archibald Hegate. Gibsone held the town 
clerkship till 1581, and again in (perhaps before) 1596, and for a few years 
subsequently, but his books between 19th August, 1576, and 29th June, 
1598, are not now extant, with the exception of a single leaf containing 
protocols bearing date 1584-5. 

Archibald Hegate, who succeeded Henry Gibsone as town clei-k, was 
a son of William Hegate, burgess of Glasgow, and was admitted a notary 
by the lords of council and session in May or June, 1581 (Appx. No. I.). 
At that time Esme, earl of Lennox, cousin of the king, and great 
chamberlain of Scotland, was provost of Glasgow, and he, "with authorite 
and command of the Kingis majestic," appointed Hegate town clerk.' This 
innovation on the town's pri\'ileges was acquiesced in by an act entered 
in the burgh court book on 2.3rd May, 1581; but on 9th September, 1589, 
the magistrates and council ordered the act to be "deleit and put furth of 
the bulk, as repugnant and maist prejudiciall to the libertie of the toun, 
they haifand electioun in their awin handis of the said office in all tyme 
bygane."- Previous to that date, however, Hegate had ceased to be town 
clerk. He was re-elected by the magistrates and council in May, 1583, 
and June, 1584. No election is noted in 1585, and the records are wanting 
between April, 1586, and October, 1588. On 20th May, 1589, "maister 
Johnne Ros" was elected clerk. In 1605 and subsequent years Archibald 
Hegate again held the office of town clerk, and his jirotocol books extend 
in a continuous series from 1581 till 1612. 

1 Glasgow Records, i. pp. 84, 85. - lb., p. 146. 



viii PREFACE. 

After a notary ceased to hold the town clerkship, his transactions 
related chiefly to properties beyond the burgh boundaries ; and, accordingly, 
the main loss to local history occasioned by the disappearance of Henry 
Gribsone's protocols applies to the period between 1576 and 1581. This is 
the first large gap in the protocol books subsequent to the Reformation, 
and it occurs at a time when interesting particulars regarding the disposal 
of church property and ecclesiastical endowments might have been looked 
for. No doubt it occasionally happens that a later protocol makes up for 
one that has disappeared, as in No. 2462, which sufficiently explains what 
became of the ancient church of St. Tenu ; but in many cases the loss 
of information is complete. 

During the early years of Hegate's clerkship there was considerable 
trouble in municipal and ecclesiastical circles in connection with the appointment 
of Robert Montgomrie, minister at Stirling, as successor to James Boyd, 
archbishop of Glasgow;' and, for the part he took in the affair, the clerk 
incurred the displeasure of the presbyterian party. On 9th October, 1582, 
the general assembly directed "that Coline Campbell, burges of Glasgow, 
WiUiam Hegget, Archibald Hegget, and their complices, be punished according 
to justice, for the seditioun and uproar made by them, being magistrates 
and counsellers,- against the students of Glasgow, and shedding their blood ;"-^ 
and at the same time it was ordained that certain accomplices of the 
provost, including "Archibald Hegget," should be excommunicated by the 
minister of Glasgow " for banting the companie of Mr. R. Montgomrie, 
after his excommunication, and other enormiteis committed by them."^ 

As stated in Archibald Hegate's act of admission, the protocol book 
then supplied to him consisted of one hundred and ninety-three leaves, 
authenticated by Robert Scott, clerk to the lords of session. This book 
was regularly written so far as folio 180, where the notary has 
inserted a statement to the efiect that some imprudent person had cut out 

See Glasgow Charters, I., pp. rax-cxxvi. 3 Calderwood's Historic of the Kirk of Scotland

"Archibald Hegget," and it is supposed that the town ^lb., p. CSS. 
clerk was meant. 



PREFACE. ix 

the next leaf, and that therefore, to avoid suspicion of fraud, he had inserted 
no further protocols in the book. On four of the remaining leaves have been 
written the "authorities and notabill placis of Scripture" reproduced in 
Appendix II. 

The extended topographical knowledge gained by the publication of the 
protocols renders practicable the compilation of a map of old Glasgow in 
fuller detail than has hitherto been attempted; and it is intended that 
one of the three volumes now required to complete the series of Glasgow 
Protocols will contain a detailed map of at least the section of the city 
embracing the cathedral and adjacent streets. 

It may here be explained that though the headline of the printed 
Protocols still retains the years of indiction and pontificate, the protocols 
themselves, at the date now reached, specify neither of these particulars. 
Shortly after the Eeformation the practice became irregular, and gradually 
ceased altogether; but there was no fixed rule on the subject, each notary 
apparently following his own inclination. There being thus no definite 
termination of the custom, it was thought as well to keep up both indiction 
and pontificate as items of chronological information.

" at the requeist of Robert Scott, scrybe to the lords of 
sessioun" (Glasgow Rec. i. p. 22). Giving to one the 
right of nominating a burgess was a common way of 
dispensing the town council's favour. On 12 August, 
1575, the town treasurer of Glasgow paid £6 " for wyne 
propynit to Robert Scott, scribe in Edinburght, the 
tyme of his being in this toun " (,1b. p. 452). 

Part of the paper having been worn ofl, the lost portion 
of the notary's sign has been supplied in dotted lines. 

iThe Scripture passages in the MS. have been taken 
from the Latin Vulgate. 

- Exodus xiv, 19, " And the angel of God, which went 



before the camp of Israel, remo^-ed and went behind 
them ; and the pillar of the cloud went from before 
their face and stood behind them ; (20) And it came 
between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of 
Israel." 

'.i Translation— Here the people are accompanied by 
the angel of the Lord, and so the Lord, through the 
guardianship of angels, ceases not to protect his faithful 
and elect here in this world, imperilled both in mind and 
body, which is sure. Therefore they are impious and 
profane words and blasphemies which are against the 
knowledge and wisdom of angels.

Heir in this place thir lait enemeis of Godis kirk ar confoundit in 
thair fals doctrene quhilk they teich to the pepill, crying and creiking in 
pulpitis that the commandimentis of God may nocht be kepit and obeyit, 
seing that heir God him self sayis to his pepill that his commandymentis 
gifin thame ar nocht abufe thair power, as may lykeuise be sene in the 
young man that come to Chryste and askit him quhat he sould do to get 
evirlasting lyfe, to quhome Chryste ansuerit: Keip the commandymentis. 
The young man ansuerand Chryste, said to him, efter that Jesus had 
repetit the commandimentis, that he had kepit thame fra his youth up; 
and Chryste accusit him nocht of the contrar, bot sayis he lakit ane 
thing, that is, sell that thow hes and gif to the pure, and follow me. 
Quhilk quhen the young man hard, he was sad, etc. Sa we may persaif 
that the yok and burding of Chryste is licht and sweit and nocht ane 
thing impossibill. Yet I will nocht deny bot the commandymentis may be 
brokin, and daylie brokin, bot for the same trew repentance pleissis the 
Lord in the Lamb slayne for the synnes of the wardill. Bot this doctrene 
of Luther and Calvin and thair followeris is to lerne men to flattir thame 
selfis quhen they haif synnit, for gif it be impossibill to keip the 
commandymentis, than ar we at rest with our selfis, becaus God hes 
commandit ane impossibilitie quhilk is aganes his justice and rychteusnes, 
seing Paul says that God is faithfull and sail nocht tempt or lay to our 
charge that quhilk we may nocht.

sa it is thair onlie . . ." and nocht the will nor predestinatioun of God. 
Justlie, thairfoir, did they incur the curse of God, becaus lyfe and deth 
is left to thair free will and electioun; and gif free will and electioun had 
nocht bene in thair power, it could nocht haif standit with the justice of 
God to pwnische thame incais it had bene his will and predestinatioun in

Tulit autem de preda populus [etc. I. Samuel, xv. 21-23]. 

Here wee see that Saul, eftir the grit victore quhilk God gaif him of 
the Amalakitis, saifis frome the ege of the sword Agag thair king, with 
ane grit numbir of the ehosin and best of nolt and scheip, and being 
accusit thairof be Samuell, Saul excuses his doing, sayis to the propheit 
that the same was reservit to mak sacrifice to the Lord thairof, nevirtheles 
his excuse is rejectit and his doing is condempnit, albeit the same procedit 
of him to do honour and sacrifice to God ; and that becaus he did nocht 
obey the command of God in puteing man and beist to the ege of the 
sword ; and thairfoir it is said to him : Becaus thou hes nocht hard the 
command of God, God hes cassin the of, that thow sail nocht be king 
o\ar Israeli. Now to compair the disobedience of Saul to the rebellioun 
and disobedience of this our age and tyme, quhilk baith prince and pepill

they pretend the verie excuse of Saul, to wit, mair holie and sinceir 
wirschip and service of God be reformatioun of relegioun, as they call it, 
bot as the excuse of Saul avalit nocht, na mair sail that thair excuse

iSee footnote to No. 2453. The "new church" was 
acquired by James Flemyn^' in the year 1570, as narrated 
iti protocol No. 1702, and at that time the scliool 
mentioned in the text was called the Song; School. It 
had evidently been used in connection with the col- 
legiate church, for the primary purpose of training its 
choristers. A similar school was connected with the 
cathedral (see Glasgow Charters, i. pp. 6.n-t)). With 
the changes introduced at the Reformation, elaborate 
choral services ceased, and music culture was to 
some extent abandoned, while instruction in rudi- 
mentary knowledge became more general. When the 
"Inglis Schole" superseded St. Mary's "sang schole," 
accommodation for the teaching of music was procureti 
elsewhere. In 1577 the city treasurer paid 40s. "for 
male (i.e., rent) of ane chalmer to be ane sang school" 
(Glasg. Rec. i.p. 462); and in the following year the like 
sum was paid "for the maill of the chalmer to the sang 
scole"(i;;. p. 4(i3).

The church dedicated to St. Thenau, the mother of 
St. Mungo, is of unknown antiquity, and it long 
continued a landmark of the city, giving its name to one 
of the principal thoroughfares. After running a course 
of varying orthography (see Mr. J. T. T. Brown's paper 
in Regality Club, 2nd series, p. 127), the name has settled 
into its present form, and the St. Enoch's Chuich &f 
to-day conun em orates the existence, if it does not 
occupy the precise site, of the mediasval structure, A 
writ, dated 27 October, 1426, refers to the great street 
leading from the market cross to the chapels of St. 



Thomas the Martyr and of St. Tanew (Liber Coll. Nostre 
nomine, etc., p. 244). This is the earliest notice of the 
chapel found in extant records, but subsequent notices, 
including those in the protocols, are numerous. A 
charter, dated in 1475, refers to the chapel where rest 
the bones of St. Thenew, the mother of St. Keritigern 
(Reg. Episc. Glasg. No. 478) ; but perhaps this means 
nothing more than that some portions of what were 
accepted as her relics were deposited in the chapel. 
Among the relics preserved in the cathedral in 14:52 
were "two small linen bags, with bones of SS. 
Kentigern, Thenew, and other divers saints" (Dillon's 
Inventory, translated in Gordon's Scotichronicon, ii. 
p, 452). At the Reformation such objects of veneration 
were considered idolatrous and specially singled out 
for destruction. Any relics then in the chapel would 
therefore, doubtless, disappear. From the above 
protocol it is ascertained that the church itself had been 
converted into a barn. James Fleming, who acquired 
the collegiate church of St. Mary in the Trongate 
(see protocol 1702), had probabl}' got St. Tenew's chapel 
and grounds under similar circumstances. Though 
applied to secular uses, the building seems to have 
retained its external form for some time. Woodrow, 
in his "Collections for the Life of David WeeTUS ' 
(Maitland Club, 1S4S), p. 5, mentiotis that in the Kirk 
Session Records, under date 5 May, 3595, "St. Enuis 
Kirk in the Trongate is spoken of. I take it to be 
what is vulgarly called Saint Tennocbis." M'Ure, in his 
History of Glasgow, published in 1736, referring to 
churches and chapels before the Reformation, mentions 
"St. Enoch's church, without the West Port, the 
remains of which is yet to be seen" (1S30 edition, p. 62).

rated in protocol No. 1702 and relative footnote; and it 
is probable that the "Bellious" was included in these 
transmissions. On 20 December, 1595, instructions were 
given for the touTi treasurer of the year 1593 accepting' 
a sum of money in full_of the "maillof the Belhous," 
onehalf of the "maill" or rent being remitted "inrespect 
the steiple was tane downe" (Rec. i., 175). Another 
steeple, however, appears to have been erected, as on 
22 February, 1594-5, the provost, bailies, and town 
council, in recognition of the services rendered by 
Archibald Faulls, merchant, in attending to the "re- 
edifying of the Trone Church," for three years, granted 
to him two booths forming "parts of their New Kirk 
steeple" (Glasgow Charters, i. ; Abstract, p. 37, No. 407). 
These two booths were re-acquired by the town council 
in 1631 {lb. p. 75, No. 53S), at which time the steeple was 
being heightened, and other alterations made, of which 
particulars will be found in tlie printed records. Thus 
on 27 January, 1630, it was resolved "as ane comnioun 
Weill of the burgh, that the stiple of the Trongait Kirk 
sail be hightit in the most best and commodious forme 
can be devysit be the best craftismen, with all diligence 
possible " (Glasg, Rec. i. p. 37^). Payments towards the 
work were authorised in December, 1630, and February, 
1G31 ilb. ii. pp. 1, 2). Then on 19 March, 1631, there 
occurs the following entry in the records which appears 
to refer to the "Belhous" mentioned in the text, as 
distinguished from the steeple erected in connection 



with the renovated church of 1592; though, taken in 
conjunction with other passages in the records, it is 
possible that the strxictures may have been connected : — 
"The provest, bailleis and counsall hes concludit to tak 
doun to the grund the haill bellhous in the Trongait, 
baith new wark and auld" {lb. ii. p. .3). 

M'Ure, in his History of Glasgow (1S30 edition, p. 59)i 
thus describes the steeple as it existed in 1736:— "The 
community . . . built a handsome steeple or spear 
before . . . but not adjoining to the church, in the 
year 1637. At the bottom of the steeple there is a trone 
or a place for weighing of goods. . . . The city have 
also furnished the steeple with two large hells that rings 
at six, eight, and ten of the clock at night, and at six in 
the morning, all the year over, and on the Lord's day, 
and other week days of sermon ; but there is no clock in 
it, because it is situate near the tolbooth clock on the 
one hand, and Hutcheson's clock on the other, being all 
three on one street, which, without doubt, is the fairest 
in the whole city. The steeple of this church is 126 foot 
high." The date of erection given by M'Ure has been 
followed by other historians, and that year may have 
been reached before all the fittings were completed, as 
a bell for the steeple was got in 1636 (Glasg. Rec. ii. p. 
41); but the work was evidently commenced some years 
earlier. In consequence of its detached position the 
steeple escaped the conflagration by which the church 
was destroyed in 1793 ; and at the present day it fonns 
one of the most interesting relics of Old Glasgow, with 
a history which can be traced back to 1631, if not forty 
years earlier.

1 The annualrent is stated to be redeemable for 40 
merks, but this may be a clerical slip, as the redemption 
money was usually the same as the price. A return of 
5 merks on £40 represents about 8 per cent., a not 
unusual rate at that period, though 10 per cent, was 
more common. According to the canon law, enforceable 
in this country previous to the Reformation, a stipula- 
tion for payment of interest was not allowed ; but after 
that law fell into abeyance, there was for some time no 



limit to the rate which might be stipulated. A Scottish 
statute (1587, c. 52 of the 1681 edition of the acts; 15S7, 
0. 35, supplemented by 1597, c. IS of the Record edition) 
restricted the profit to be taken for the loan of money to 
10 per cent.; and the legal rate was from time to time 
reduced by subsequent acts of parliament (see Erskine's 
Institute, B. iii. tit. iii. s. 75, 76). These limitations, 
however, were abolished by the "Usury Laws Repeal 
Act" of 1854.
