About Katharine Arneill

KATHARINE ARNEILL

It is not possible to identify a date and place of birth for Katharine Arneill. [Note]

Katharine Arneill is the wife of Ninian Gilhagie, merchant, burgess, and guild brother of the burgh of Glasgow in Lanarkshire, Scotland. [National Archives of Scotland, H. M. General Register House, Edinburgh, Commissary Records of Glasgow, The Testament Testamentar of Katharine Arneill,reference CC9/7/7 ff. 89-91].

Death

Katharine Arneill died on 8 February 1611, probably at Glasgow in Lanarkshire, Scotland. She had been ill since at least 10 December 1610, the date upon which she made her last will and testament. [National Archives of Scotland, H. M. General Register House, Edinburgh, Commissary Records of Glasgow, The Testament Testamentar of Katharine Arneill,reference CC9/7/7 ff. 89-91].

Last Will and Testament

Katharine Arneill made her last will and testament at Glasgow on 15 December 1610. She left one hundred merks to John Gilhagie, to be paid to him after the death of her husband, and one hundred merks to her sister's sons, George and Thomas Louk, to be divided equally between them. Among the debts "awand by the deid" was one hundred and nineteen pounds which was due to her brother-in-law James Gilhagie. Confirmation was granted to her widowed husband, Ninian Gilhagie, on 15 February 1611. Her free gear was divided into two parts, from which circumstance it would appear that Ninian Gilhagie and Katharine Arneill did not have any children, at least none who were still in life on 15 December 1610. James Gilhagie of Kendiehill acted himself as cautioner for his brother Ninian [National Archives of Scotland, H. M. General Register House, Edinburgh, Commissary Records of Glasgow, The Testament Testamentar of Katharine Arneill,reference CC9/7/7 ff. 89-91].

Children

No record of any children has been found for Ninian Gilhagie and his wife Katherine Arneill. Katherine's testament testamentar makes no mention of any and the fact that her free gear was divided into two parts confirms that there were none. [National Archives of Scotland, H. M. General Register House, Edinburgh, Commissary Records of Glasgow, The Testament Testamentar of the late Katharine Arneill, confirmation granted on 15 February 1611, reference CC9/7/7 ff. 89-91].
