About Janet Spreull

JANET SPREULL

Her 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.

Janet Spreull died in October 1614. [National Records of Scotland, Glasgow Commissary Court, Tes tament Testamentar and Inventory of Jonet Spreull spouse to Johnne Padie, skynner burges of Glasgw, reference CC9/7/10]

Marriage

Janet Spreull married John Peadie, Skinner in Glasgow. [National Records of Scotland, Glasgow Commissary Court, Testament Testamentar and Inventory of Jonet Spreull spouse to Johnne Padie, skynner burges of Glasgw, reference CC9/7/10] There is no record of the marriage, records before 1622 have not survived, but their eldest child, Janet Peadie, was probably no younger than sixteen years of age when she married William Hunter in 1622, and if this was the case then she would have been born before 1608. Possibly, therefore, Janet Spreull and her husband were married in or before about 1607.
