The Commissariot Record of Edinburgh/Register of Testaments. Part III. Volumes 81 - 131 1701 - 1800.

This volume completes the Index to this Commissariot, so far as it is proposed by the Society to print the same. It includes all Testaments recorded before 31st December 1800. The remainder of the Record down to 31st December 1829 is in the General Register House, but from that date to the present day it will be found at the Commissary Office.

The Register for the Eighteenth Century shows a considerable falling away in the number of Testaments recorded, due to some extent to the Local Registers being more taken advantage of. On the other hand, a number of Testaments of Scotsmen dying in England, the Colonies, and abroad are to be found. The Register for the years following on the Union of the Parliaments is one of melancholy interest, containing as it does, to a certain extent, the death-roll of the ill-fated Darien Expedition.

The ships of the Scottish Indian and African Company mentioned in the Record are the "Caledonia," "Rising Sun," "Unicorn," "Speedy Return," "Olive Branch," "Duke of Hamilton" (Walter Duncan, Skipper) "Dolphin," "St. Andrew," "Hope," and "Endeavour."
