Among numerous people who owed his estate money was John Rows/Rouze of
Contentny in Craven Precinct. John became indebted to Henderson on 21 Feb
173 blank for the sum of 72 pds. by 30 Mar 174 faded, Rouse had discharged
his obligation by a mortgage.
 
Guess my question is why was Rouse indebted to someone in Bertie Co which
was a long way away. Had he made a stop by there on the way to Dobbs Co?
Henderson appears to have had no children and left his estate to Hugh Scott
son of Andrew of Glasgow - left him all the real & personal estate of David
Henderson decd which was 1/7 th undivided part. Appears to be no family
relationship and Henderson may have been a money lender.
