Letters and papers of the Anderson & Gilmour Families

A Foreword to the language & contents of the papers
The period of these papers spans a time from the 1730's to the 1770's. They show the complainants appearing in court in Auchinleck before Alexander Boswell, and in the Barony Court of Lord Loudoun. Alexander Boswell was a Lord Justice of Scotland, roughly comparable to a U.S. supreme court justice, and father to James Boswell the biographer of Samuel Johnson. The Loudoun estates were the origination of the majority of the Scots settlers of the East Hill/ Andersonville section of Glover, Greensboro, and Craftsbury.
The language of these legal documents is extremely difficult. The handwriting is a cursive "chancery" hand, making use in at least two cases of frequent abbreviations. To compound the difficulty, some Scots words are used, and some terms from Law Latin and Law French. Many of the Scots words are used in very rare specialized sense. I do not have access to Prof. A. J. Aitkin's Dictionary of the Older Scottish Tongue, nor to the "Manual d'Abbreviazione" which may have allowed some of these terms to be accurately represented. I believe that the expansion or transcription which I have provided represents the concept developed in the text, even if I may have missed a significant use of a rare term.
Just a word on the Scots language used in the legal papers: Scots grammar differs somewhat from our modern standard English - the most obvious point being use of an "s" ending on a verb to agree with the singular personal pronoun, e.g. "I finds... ." There are many lexical differences. For instance, the legal papers use "alanarly" [=English 'all only] where we expect "exclusively"; "anent" for "pertaining to"; "stent" for a particularly assessed property tax. Where English uses the particles "a," "an," or the numeral "one," Scots uses "ane." These elements, which connect Scots with Scandinavian languages, fell into disuse gradually after the Act of Union. I have not attempted to footnote the language.
The other group of documents connects to the Garvin Anderson family, preserved by Garvin's daughter Isabelle, who married into the Wylie family. This connection brought these papers into the Rodgers family. Two letters are preserved from George and Mary Borland to Mary's parents, James and Isabelle Anderson. Other letters were written from Scotland to the elder Andersons, and there are miscellaneous papers related to Anderson business dealings in America. This small collection of letters is valuable for background on the Anderson emigration.
3. Discharge dated
1755. Henry Richmond and another party here pay interest on a loan of 1100 Merks extended originally to
John Lindsay & deceased son William. Since the Lindsays figure in later Richmond filings, but have no representative at this payment of a loan they owe, this appears to be another Richmond move against them.
17. Letter: John MacKenzie
James Anderson, Sr. at West Glover, VT. From an old family friend living south of
Kilmarnock, with much neighborhood news of
Mauchline area. Describes his son
John's lumber rafting in Ontario &
Quebec, and recounts from James's letter how the Anderson men
tried to meet John at a tavern along the coach route from Burlington,
VT, to Quebec
a) Bliss Affadavit ~1850. Addressed to Mr. Boardman, states that Deacon Bliss wrote for an uncle of James, jr. [possibly Garvin], a note for sugar equipment in 1843, providing for 2 equal annual payments, first in maple sugar, second in cash. Agreement had been made for no interest, but Bliss altered the notes at a later date by inserting the words "interest." The victim chose not to publicize this episode until after Bliss's wife had died.
b) Bill of sale: for sap equipment 1872. Not apparently related to a); Enock Rowell is one of the parties to the sale. Of interest for prices.

John Ritchmond was Infeft on the heretable Bond and the Infeftment
Registrate 23d May that year.
Said Agnes Paterson & John Lindsay and W’m Lindsay
Shoemaker in Mauchline,
their oldest son, Grant Heretable Bond of Corroboration to the said John

the Dec[re]t of adjudication to Seven hundred and Twelve pound Eight shillings
Scots, and for the Contents of the Said heretable Bond of Corroberation
extending to One Thousand three hundred and fourty pounds Scots
From the above State of the Matter, it appears that David Brunton
in his Wife’s disposition being a Latent Deed will not be good to Compete with
an Onerous Creditor.
That Janet Lindsay would have Right to one half of the Twenty
penny Land and Ann Lindsay & David
Brunton to the other half, but then Janet Lindsay is a Minor.
It is said that Henry Ritchmond has sundry intromitions with the
Rents &c. and that there are various objections to the Grounds of Debt and
procedure which will oppen the Adjudications and reduce them to security for the
principal and @ rents, did not Janet Lindsay’s Minority Stand in the
way; its thought as they are not able themselves to Redeem that Agnes
Paterson and her Daughter & Son in Law & Janet Lindsay
herebye Should Dispone the whole Twenty
penny Land to some friend under Backbond
who should in their Name Raise a Reduction of the adjudication and how soon they
are reduced to securities for the prin[cipa]l and @ rent, the whole should be
Grouped together and the price applied in the first place in pay[men]t of what
shall be justly found due to Henry Ritchmond and the next place for
Defrying the Expence of the Pro [hole] s and the Residue be divided amongst
