PREFACE. 



The Commissariot of Orknty and Shetland comprised the counties of the 
same. The Record, of which the greater part is now amissing, probably 
in the hands of private individuals, commences in 1661 and ends, in so far 
as Shetland is concerned, in 1649, and as regards Orkney in 1684. The 
Testaments of the different islands are recorded in groups, according as 
the Commissary perambulated the same, holding his courts throughout the 
different parishes. For the sake of convenience, those of Shetland have 
been arranged in a separate Index from Orkney. The lists show in a 
marked manner how, by the seventeenth century, names in Orkney had 
departed from the Norwegian system of patronymics in favour of those of 
places, while in Shetland the practice, which can hardly even yet be said to 
be extinct, of callirg the son from his father's christian name, was in full 
force, thus the son of William Magnusson of Buness becomes Henry 
Williamson of Buness, and in his turn his son is Magnus Henryson or 
Henderson. 

The Register of Testaments is contained in eleven volumes, and covers 
the following periods :— 

1. 161 1 to 1 2th March 1 61 2 and 
30th December 1618 to 26th February 1628. 

2. 2ist August 1612 to 4th October 161 5. 

3. 7th March 1628 to 7th July 1638. 

4. 20th July 1638 to 22nd August 1662. 

5. 7th May 1648 to 28th August 1649. 

6. 28th June 1656 to 20th August 1659. 

7. 2nd December 1663 to 20th November 1666 and 

2nd December 1663 to i8th December 1666. 

8. 20th November 1666 to 22nd June 1671. 

9. nth January 16S1 to 6th August 1684. 

10. 15th April 1663 to 2nd December 1663. 

11. 1679 1683. 

Volume ten, which was transmitted to the Register House in 1886, by 
the representatives of the late Peter Sinclair Heddell, writer, Kirkwall, 
contains, besides Testaments, seventeen pages of notarial instruments 
1 65 7-1 659, and a disposition by Lady Halcro, dated May 1667. 

Volume eleven transmitted in 1902, by Mr. George Traill of Holland, 
contains only an abstract of the Inventory. 

In addition to the above Register, there is a fragment containing 
Decreets, 29th March 1648 to 24th November 1659, and 25th November 
1663 to 29th July 1668.
