blood feud and fornication...

Stool of repentance, St Andrews.
busy... busy... busy:
up to my oxters in bloodfeud and fornication.
Well, immersed in transcribing records from Burntisland Kirk Session records late 16th-early-17th c.  Finally the palaeography is beginning to pay off.
The laird of Orrok's son was a bit of a naughty boy, and Orrok senior wasn't that much better....
Normal blogging service will resume soon.
Aaaand back to it.

You'll find a record of that in the 'Acts of the General Assemblies' - vol 2 1583-1618, edited by Duncan Shaw, pub. in 2004 by the Scottish Record Society, p1276 [which replaces BUK - Booke of the Universall Kirk]
