Evidence from the National Records of Scotland

19 January 1782: John Paterson of Middle Shields of Kilbride had a renunciation, which was signed by the parties involved on 14 and 19 January 1782, from Agnes Hamilton and her three sisters, with their respective husbands mentioned in the deed for their interest, in respect of a heritable bond which their deceased father, Robert Hamilton, smith in the Kirkton of Kilbride, held over part of Paterson's lands of Middle Shields. It seems that Paterson had previously borrowed three thousand merks Scots from Robert Hamilton and now, following Hamilton's death, he was repaying what was owed [Lanarkshire Sasine Abstracts for 1782, abstract number 194, where the reference PR42/21/208 is cited]
