Merchant in Glasgow: Burgess and Guild Brother of Glasgow

James Peadie was a merchant in Glasgow. He was also a burgess and guild brother there, witness the burgess record of his son-in-law John Ruthven, Music Master in Glasgow Glasgow Burgesses but a burgess record cannot presently be identified for him, partly because there are gaps in the records (For example, there are gaps between 1681 and 1688, between 31 October 1693 and 9 October 1694, and between 29 September 1707 and 3 January 1712), and partly because it is presently impossible to identify him with one or other of the two merchant burgesses with the same name who immediately precede him in the published burgess records of the burgh of Glasgow.
