Prospectus.] 



VOR some years the Clerk to the House has been collecting and arranging 
all available information which throws light on the history of the 
House since its institution in 1605 to the present time. 

In the course of his investigations amongst the older documents, he has 
had to refer so constantly to the First Mmute Book of the House that he 
has made a complete transcription of it. 

This Minute Book covers the period from 1605, when the House was 
instituted by the Letter of Guildry, to 1678 — six years after its constitution 
had been ratified by the Scots Parliament. 

The book is in fair preservation, and the handwriting is, on the whole, 
wonderfully clear, but as the writing is in the style of the period, the book 
is quite unintelligible to the ordinary reader. The Records it contains are 
of great value in relation not only to the history of the Trades and the 
Convenery of Glasgow, but also to the general history of the city at a most 
interesting period of its progress. We think it right, therefore, that the 
Minute Book should now be pubHshed, so that these early Records of the 
business and procedure of the Trades and the House might be preserved in 
permanent form, and might also be available for popular use. 

Under the auspices of the House, this would require to be done by 
private subscription, and we hope that a ready response will be given by 
all interested in the history of the House and of the city. 

We propose that the Records should be printed in one quarto volume, 
and that the subscription should be £1 is. — the edition to be limited to 
500 copies, each copy to be numbered and a register kept of its issue, and 
the names of subscribers to be printed in and form part of the volume.

Preface. 



SOME years ago I was desired by the Deacon Convener and the 
Representatives of the Trades House to re-wxite the History of the 
House. Two histories had ah-eady been published. The first, by 
Mr. Benjamin Mathie, writer (Clerk to the House, 1795-1831), was more of the 
nature of a hand-book or guide. It was written and pubhshed in 1819, and a 
revised edition was issued in 1S27. Much of it became obsolete under the 
effects of the Burgh Reform Act of 1833,* and of the Act for the 
aboUtion of exclusive privileges of trading in 1846. f The second, by Mr. 
George Crawfurd, writer (Clerk to the House, 1831-1875), was published in 
1858. Copies of this book are still plentiful. It is most interesting to general 
readers, and gives a reliable epitome of the rise and progress of the House. 
Notwithstanding the limited data upon which Mr. Crawfurd had to work, his 
" Sketch of the Trades House," so far as it goes, is capable of little improvement. 
It is open to amphfication rather than to correction. 

Since 1858, however, much historical material has been published which 
throws hght on the growth of the craft and guild systems in Glasgow, notably 
the Records of the Convention of Royal Burghs, the Glasgow Burgh Records 
and Charters, the " View of the Merchants House," and histories or sketches 
relating to no fewer than twelve of the fourteen incorporated trades. 

To draw from such sources a series of notes that would be of service in 
compihng a more complete history than either of the two older works, was 
of itself a considerable task. But besides this there were some hundreds of 
old documents belonging to the House to inventory and synopsise, and twenty 
large volumes of manuscript records from 1605 to the present day to peruse 
and abstract from. Proper and accurate use of the first Minute Book was 
found impracticable without making a complete transcription of its contents. 
All this work took up the leisure of more than five years. 

It was then thought that apart from an extended History of the House, 
which would obviously involve still further research, a beginning might be 
made with the publication of the first volume of the Records in a form similar 
to that of many Scottish historical collections. This, it was hoped, would be 

* 3 and 4 William IV., c. 77. 1 9 and 10 Vict. c. 17. 



xviii PREFACE. 

of service to others than those interested merely in Craft and Guild affairs. 
Further, the publication of the present volume might have the result of 
initiating a series of Craft and Guild Records. 

The reader hardly requires to be reminded that the Records in this volume 
are not those of a single Craft nor of the Guildry (which in Glasgow was com- 
posed of two ranks of Merchants and Craftsmen Burgesses), but are those of 
the Deacon Convener's Council. This Council consisted of the Deacons of all 
the Crafts (which included the Surgeons, now disassociated, and the Mariners, 
now extinct), with a certain number of colleagues supporting each Deacon. 
The Council owed its existence in Glasgow to the Letter of Guildry of 1605.* 

In Ro3-al Burghs, the Council or Court of Deacons, often called the Con- 
venery, would appear to ha\-e been representative of a mere voluntary federation 
of the Crafts, without written constitution or legal sanction, and with a Deacon 
Convener, who was the creation of the Deacons alone. f On the one hand 
it was a convenient court of arbitration for settling craft disputes ; on the other 
it was a foil to the merchants, who were usually found united under the Dean 
of Guild in one compact body with legal status, viz., the Guild. 

Glasgow was not a Royal Burgh, but a Burgh of Barony and Regality. 
Prior to 1605, there was no Guild of Merchants and no Conv-enery of Trades. 
But there were isolated craft associations, most of them legally recognised with 
Charters and Seals of Cause. The Letter of Guildry constituted a guildry for 
the first time in Glasgow, but not simply and solely a Merchant Guild. The 
Glasgow Guildry was to consist of the two ranks of Merchants and Craftsmen 
Burgesses, the former headed by a Dean of Guild, the latter by a Deacon 
Convener. Both ranks were brought together under the Presidency of the 
Dean of Guild in a Dean of Guild Court of eight lyners, four from each rank. 

The Crafts, while thus consolidated, continued to maintain their separate 
existence and to manage their affairs by means of their Deacons and Master 
Comis. 

The Deacon Convener's Council was intended to form a representative 
chamber of the leading men of each Craft. Its functions were, amongst others, 
to endeavour to settle differences between the Crafts or in the Crafts, without 
recourse to law, and to manage a joint undertaking for behoof of poor Craftsmen, 
viz., the Crafts Hospital. These were its private functions. Its pubhc 
functions, in relation to the Town Council and the community generally, 
increased as the years went on. 

•Appendix I, + Sec Bankton's Institutes, II.. p. 578, par. 5. 



PREFACE. xix 

The Records, now published for the hrst time, sliow the early transactions 
of the Council, which, it should be noted, did not assume the name of the 
Crafts House or Trades House until it had been in operation for more than 
50 j'ears. It was never officially called the Convenery. 

The Records are given verbatim. Nothing has been omitted, and no 
liberties have been taken with the te.xt. For any difficulty which the reader 
may e.\perience with seventeenth century spelling, words, and phrases, I, 
along with my predecessors of the time, must take full responsibility, but offer 
no apology. 

It is but right to say that about one-sixth of the book in the form of 
extracts had already been transcribed by Mr. Robert Renwick, Depute Town 
Clerk, in the year 1889, for the late Mr. Edmond Baird Paterson, afterwards 
Collector of the House. These extracts \:ere exceedingly valuable for reference 
and comparison, but no further use has been made of them in connection with 
the present publication. 

The documents in the Appendices have all been carefully collated with 
the originals, with the exception of the letter from King James VT.,* which 
could not be obtained for reference. 

Thanks are due to Mr. Robert Renwick for help afforded in many ways ; 
also to Dr. George Neilson, Stipendiary Magistrate ; and to the Incorporations 
of Maltmen, Weavers, and Bonnetmakers and Dyers, for permission to collate 
their copies of the Letter of Guildry with the original extract from the Burgh 
Records in possession of the House. 

I must also record my sincere thanks to Mr. A. R. Duncan, M.A., for his 
able assistance and co-operation during the past three years.

Irvine, March, igio. 

Note. — The second volume of the Records, 1678-1713, has been amissing since 
some time before 1831. Any information which may lead to the recovery 
of this volume will be much prized by the House.

Directions to Readers. 



The vvTitten letters throughout the book represent the same letters as The Alphabet. 
are in use now. It is e.\tremely doubtful whether the two additional ancient 
characters )> and 5 were ever intended to be written by the different scribes. 

The former letter ]> known as the thorn, and representing th, may have If. 
been in the mind of some of the writers, but the single written letter found 
representing th is most undoubtedly a y and not J>. It has therefore been 
printed as y, e.g., ye=the, yat =that. 

The other character 5 always takes the form of z, and has therefore been 5. 
printed z throughout. It is invariably met with where our modem y would 
be used. For instance, at the beginning of a word : — 

zeiris for yeiris = years. zog' for yog' = younger. 

zii for yii =yet. zaird for yaird =yard. 

and in the middle of a word : — tailzeour for tally eoiir = tailor. 

The letters n, v. and w are often interchanged, one being written where U, V, and W. 
we would now use the other, for instance : — 

vnforgevin =unforgiven. abvs for abus =abuse. V for U. 

vnlaw=unlaw. v' for u'', i.e., uther=other. 

vpon =upon. vmquhile =umquhile. 

vsing = using. vsual = usual. 

proueist for proveist = provost. Dauid = David. u for V. 

rpue for rpve =respective. diuers = divers. 

seuerall = several. quhatsumeuer = whatsomever. 

wnto =unto. serwe = serve. w for Vor U. 

woittis for voittis = votes. wpone =upon. 

werie for verie =very. bwytis for buitis =bits. 

fywe for fyve =five. gewin = given. 

pwir for puir=poor. anwal for anual = annual. 

The letter y will sometimes be found where we would now use /, e.g., Y lor I. 

poyndis for poindis = poinds, 
syluer = silver, 
buy Iding = building. 



xxiv DIRECTIONS TO READERS. 

Transposition jhe transposition of letters is somewhat common. For instance : — 

of letters. '^ 

brussar, brussorie = bursar, bursary, exterordinari = extraordinary. 
brut, brughe = burgh. threttein, threttie = thirteen, thirty. 

monye = money. thrid = third . 

Spelling. As will be seen, the spelling throughout is very irregular. The same 

word will often be found spelt by one scribe in several different ways. This 
holds good not only with ordinary words, but with proper names, e.g., 

as, als, alse. 

baileis, bailzeis, baillees = bailies. 

brethren, breithrine, brethreen. 

fines, fynes, fynnes. 

guildry, gildry, gildrie. 

muskets, muskattis, musquetts. 

samen, samyne, samine, samynn =same. 

silver, siluir, syluir. 

tailor, tailyeour, tailzeor, tailzeour. 

Fairie, Farie, Pharie. 

Jafray, Jafra, Jamphray. 

Merschall, Marschell, Marchell, Mershell. 

Quh. The reader will notice the constant use of qiih to represent the modem 

wh, e.g., 

quha, wha=who. quhilk = which. 

quhais = whose. quhom=whom. 

quhill = while. quhinger = whinger (sword). 

Terminations Terminations of nouns and verbs will at first cause a httle trouble to the 

reader. In nouns the ending is represents the modern plural endings es and s, 
and also the possessive s, e.g., 

armis = arms. 

houssis = houses. 

Godis pleasour = God's pleasure. 

In verbs is will be found for s ; ii for cd ; and for ing ; and in or ine for 
en, thus : — 

is for s — buikis, extendis. 
ii for ed — buikit, revisit, debursit, agit, askit. 
and for ing — awand, reportand, makand. 
in or inc for en — tackin, choysine. 

Contraction;. Contractions are very numerous. The scribes indicate contractions by 

means of contraction signs, and of superiors. 



DIRECTIONS TO READERS. xxv 

Each scribe uses a variety of signs and of contractions. No attempt Contraction 
has been made to reproduce in print the different styles of written contraction ^'^°*' 
signs. One uniform mark has been used by the printer, and it will be 
found only where a contraction sign has been made by the scribe. A word 
is often contracted without any contraction sign being used. 

A short stroke printed above a letter signifies that a letter (or letters) 
following has been omitted in the original, a contraction sign being left by the 
writer to denote the shortening of the word, e.g., cu for cum =come. Where 
a double consonant should appear in a word, the contraction sign may be found 
over the vowel preceding the consonant, or over the consonant itself as, e.g., 
suma or suffia =summa ; hamerman or haiherman =hammerman. 

The contractions are for the most part quite regular, the letters most 
frequently omitted being, m, w, om, um, in, on, ar, air, cr, ri : as e.g., 

niiber =nu»tber ; covenar =co«venar ; 
cmand = command ; memorand =memorandMW ; 
deiks =deikms ; cforme =co«forme ; 
pticulars = particulars ; yto =yajVto ; 
psonaUe =peysonaUe ; wttin =w>'jttin. 

Sometimes, however, the contractions are irregular, syllables or letters 
being left out in the middle of a word or cut off from the end of it ; as e.g., 

magrates = magistrates ; prifill = ^xincipaW ; 
repive = respective ; caor =ca«^jo«er ; 
simpll =sim^\\citer ; not =x\oiary. 

Superiors are small letters placed above the hne to signify contractions. Superiors 
This form of contraction is very common ; 

{a) in certain words of one syllable, as e.g., 

no' =nocht =not ; bur' = burgh; p'=part; 
q* =quha =\vho ; q" = while ; q° =when ; q' =what ; q'' = where ; 
wry' =wright ; smy' = smith ; w' =with ; 
y™ =yem =them ; y" =then ; y"" = there ; y^ =this ; y' =that ; 
(b) in words of more than one syllable, ending with the letters d, r, or 
i, as e.g.. 

Art" = Archibald ; mer'' =merchand ; 

Ed"" = Edinburgh ; m''= master; mess"" = messenger ; 

Parlia' = Parliament ; pay' = payment ; rece' =receivit. 

It should be noted that just as a scribe often spells the same word in 
various ways, so he may contract the same word variously, e.g., umqll, umqll, 
umq" =umquhill. 

One of the scribes repeats a contraction for con as in conveiner and Con. 
conform. The first letter is clearly a c and the second closely resembles 



XXVI 



DIRECTIONS TO READERS. 



Other signs. 



for tio. 



a y. While the whole contraction approximates to the old sign g =con, the 
combination is more like cy. Where this contraction occurs, therefore, 
it has been printed cy, thus : — cyveiner for conveiner ; cyform for conform. 

At a later date a period, and sometimes a stroke — /, are also used to 
denote a contraction, e.g., 

malt, for maltman. W'hit. for Whitsunday, 

d. for deacon. lib. for libra = pounds. 

Tho. for Thomas. v/ =umquhile. 

L/ = Lordship. 

The curved line, ' represents tio, e.g.. 

e.xonera'un for exoneration. mortifica^un. 

ca'uner or cau^ner. voca'un. 

supplica'un. e.\ecu*un. 



Rubrics. 



In the rubrics, for the convenience of printing, missing letters have been 
filled in in itahcs. Many of the rubrics appear to have been written at a 
later date than the Minute, although, as a rule, not much later. They may 
have been written in by a succeeding scribe to simphfy reference. 
Scotch word5. The modem reader will ha\-e no difficulty in understanding many of the 

old words used, such as : — 

adois = doings. 

aithis for oathis = oaths. 

aucht = eight. 

aursycht = oversight. 

bailzeis =baiHes. 

baxter = baker. 

bay the =both. 

beis =be. 

brasin = brass. 

buik =book. 

buird = board. 

but = without. 

chuis and choyse = choose. 

compt = account. 

eftir = after. 

fra =from. 

fuird =ford. 

gif=if. 

haill= whole. 

kist = chest. 

litster = clothweaver. 

lytes = leets. 



DIRECTIONS TO READERS. xxvii ■ 

na=no. 

nather = neither. 
pienteis = apprentice, 
puir =poor. 
quhais = whose, 
samyn =same. 
schone = shoes. 
sik =such. 
sklaittis = slates, 
subscryve = subscribe, 
tain = taken, 
wobster = weaver. 
yir for thir = these. 

Unless where specially mentioned the figures in the cash columns and Money and 

° J .,,. Numbers, 

throughout the book represent Scots money. To reduce pounds, shillmgs, 
and pence to sterhng money, one must divide by 12. The merk is equal to 
13/4 Scots. 

In the early part of the book the figures are usually expressed in Roman 
numerals. The pounds are preceded or followed by the contraction lib. or li, 
representing librae= pounds. The shilling figures are followed by s., and the 
pence by d. It will be noticed that where the last Roman numeral is an i, 
it is extended downwards until it forms a j, thus :— viij = eight. 

When ordinary numerals come to be used in the accounts, additional 
ciphers are found written before the numerals in each column. The pounds 
are usually written in not less than four figures, and the shillings and pence 
in not less than two figures each, thus : — 

0008 06 08 for £8 6 8 
0066 13 04 for £66 13 4 

In a few accounts these ciphers have been printed in full as specimens. 
In the remainder the extra ciphers have been omitted. 

The year will often be found expressed with the help of a corrupt con- 
traction representing 1600, which should possibly have been written imvic, 
i.e., i (one), m (thousand), vi (six), c (hundred), but is written instead iaivic — 
or more commonly jaivjc or jajvic. 

Round brackets ( ) denote that there is a blank left in Brackets, etc. 

the original writing. 

Square brackets [ ] denote that the original writing is 

undecipherable. 

Square brackets [ ] with a word or words between, denote 

that the words have been supplied. 

A series of denotes that the writing has been worn away, 

or the paper torn or amissing.
