About Janet Peadie

JANET PEADIE

Jonet Padie (1614) Jonnet Pedie (1622) Jonet Padie (1631)

Janet Peadie, here treated, is the eldest child of John Peadie, Skinner in Glasgow, and his first wife Janet Spreull. A baptismal record cannot be identified for her, there are none at Glasgow before 1609, but she married William Hunter in 1622 and seems likely to have been born before 1606.

Marriage

Janet Peadie married William Hunter. The marriage was booked on 17 November 1622, at Glasgow in Lanarkshire, Scotland. [National Records of Scotland, Glasgow Marriages, 1612-87, reference OPR.644/1/23]

Her Mother's Last Will and Testament

Janet Spreull made her last will and testament at Glasgow on 14 September 1614. She nominated John Peadie, her husband, to be her only executor and intromitter with her goods and gear. Patrick Bar, skinner in Glasgow, and George Pollock, younger, were nominated as tutors to her children. She left all her personal clothing, together with one hundred merks money, to her daughter Janet Peadie. It was her wish that the remainder of her free gear should be divided equally between her five children, including Janet, viz. John Peadie, William Peadie, James Peadie, Thomas Peadie, and Janet Peadie. Her husband John Peadie gave up the inventory of their moveable property and Gabriel Cunningham, merchant in Glasgow, acted himself as cautioner for him. Confirmation was granted on 24 January 1615.

Her Father's Last Will and Testament

John Peadie made his last will and testament at Glasgow on 1 October 1631. He nominated his wife Marie Muir to be his only executor and universal intromitter with his goods and gear. He also nominated and appointed his brother, James Peadie, skinner in Glasgow, and his eldest son, also James Peadie, to be tutors testamentar to John Peadie, Marion Peadie and Bessie Peadie: "his thrie bairnes procreat betwixt mim & the said Marie Muir". He left an annuity to his eldest daughter Janet Peadie: "the yeirlie proffeit of ane thousand punds mony during her wedowhead". In the event of her marrying for a second time she was to receive five hundred merks from the principal sum and the remainder was to be given to two of her sons (identified as John Peadie's oyes), three hundred merks to Robert Hunter, and seven hundred merks to William Hunter. In the event of their death the money was to be divided equally between Bessie Peadie and Jonet Peadie, his youngest daughters. Confirmation was granted to Marie Muir on 21 February 1632.
