[National Records of Scotland, Glasgow Commissart Court, Testament Dative and Inventory of Jonet Gibsoune spouse to umquhile Dauid Calderwode, saidler burges of Glasgow, reference CC9/7/13]

The Testament Dative of his Widow

The testament dative and inventory of the deceased Jonet Gibson was given up by Alexander Calderwood, skinner, and Andrew Calderwood, saddler, on 22 May 1617. It is supposed that Alexander and Andrew were relatives of Jonet Gibson's also deceased husband, David Calderwood, saddler burgess of Glasgow, brothers, perhaps, but the exact relationship is not specified in this deed, the opening paragraph of which reads as follows:

"The Testament Dative and Inventory of the guids geir debts & sowmes of money qlk pteinit to umqle Jonet Gibsoun spous to umqle David Calderwode sadler burges of Glasgow the tyme of hir deceis quha deceist in the moneth of Junnij the year of God jajvjc & threttein yearis ffaytfullie maid & given up be Alexr Calderwod skyner & Andro Calderwod sadler curators to Johnne & Robert Calderwode and faytfullie maid & given up be the said tutors of law to Hew & Wm Calderwode hir bairnes lawl to the defunct and exrs datives decernit to hir guids & geir be decreit of the Commissr of Glasgow the xxij day of Maij 1617 yeirs as the samyne mair fullie proports.
