Need help reading a Will

Hi All,

Is there anybody here who can read an old Will? I've been trying for ages to read a Will....Williame Fyne, 1570. So frustrating!! I'd be very grateful to anybody who may be able to help? Cheers, Lynne. :)

Re: What is a "bailliary"?

The village was always associated with the Cunningham family, the Earls of Glencairn, but the estate was sold to Henrietta Scott, the Marchioness of Titchfield in 1786. futuremuseum.co.uk/Collection.aspx/photographic_views_of_kilmarnock_loudoun/Object/the...

Re: What is a "bailliary"?

For some reason I was under the impression in Britain only the monarchy could own land, or any treasures therein, and that the best you could hope for was a lease of 99 years, renewable.
