In this week's poser, taken from the judicial rentals in the Callander Barony Court records (National Records of Scotland, RH11/10/1/30), we asked you what Robert Callander paid in total in yearly rent and what the date of the document was.
In addition to the six pounds, twelve shillings Scots, Robert Callander paid three bolls, three firlots of bere (barley), in 1717.
Robert Callander in Ladysmiln Depons that he
pays of yearly rent six pound twelve shilling
scots of mony and three bolls three firlots bear
and that he paid to parkhall Fourty five pund
and that he rests one hundred and twenty three
pound five shilling and ten penies Scots at and
preceeding Mertimes Jaj vii c and seventeen
and this is the truth as he shall answer to
Alex[ande]r Watt B[aillie]
