Michael Naesmith borrowed £480 from William Hamilton in 1731 and by 1740 John and James Naesmith, defenders, had become bound for the debt. After Michael's death, John and James received adjudication against a tenement he had owed, in order to recover what he owed them. In 1774, Hart, pursuer, and son of another creditor of Michael, brought an adjudication against the tenement.
