Earlier Galletleys in Airntully
The earliest reference found so far to the Galletley family in Airntullie
comes from November 1660 in a rental roll as recorded for Sir Thomas Stewart of Grandtully. It is catalogued in the National
Records of Scotland as part of the Grandtully Muniments under GD121/1/Box 41/223. In this record, there is a mention of a
James Gellatlie as follows:
Agnes Young, relict of umqll James Gellatlie, 1 oxgang
4 bolls bear, 3 firlots meal, 1 firlot oats, £4 3s 4d silver
duty, 18s capons & henns
In addition, in April 1671, a subsequent list of bear delivered
by the tenantry of Airntully to Thomas McCondochie notes that 16 bolls came from Thomas Gellatly. Quite how
James and Thomas fit in as yet is unclear, but it does seem feasible that one of them may have been Grisal's grandfather.
More work needs to be done on this, however.
In a rental of May 1691 we then find a James and Thomas Gellatly
of Woodend recorded in the records for Kerco, Grandtully (James owing £21 Scots, Thomas £40), and a Jon Gellatly
in Meikle Obney. In Airntully is found a Jon Gellatly and an Alexander Gellatly, who
both paid bear, meal, and poultry in rent (NRS: GD121/41/223 Grandtully Muniments). In 1699, Alexander Gellatly
is again noted in Airntully, paying 4 bolls of bear, meal, oats and money in rent (NRS: GD121/41/223 Grandtully Muniments).
In later records, a John Gellatly of Airntully is noted in the Associate
Congregation records for Kinclaven on 8 DEC 1752 as having been guilty of promiscuous dancing (Source: NRS CH3/502/1/93 Kinclaven
Associate Congregation kirk session minutes). In the same register on 4 JUN 1780 is a mention of an elder by the name of Patrick
Gellatly who was responsible in that role for a quarter of Airntully (Source: NRS CH3/502/1/209 Kinclaven Associate
Congregation kirk session minutes). It would seem possible that John might have been a nephew, and Patrick perhaps a brother,
but more research needs to be done to substantiate this.
abt 1710 - aft 1755
Grisal was Calum's, Jamie's and Pippa's seven times great grandmother.
Not a great deal is known about Grisal. We know that she
married James Brough in Kinclaven in late 1731, with the OPR record noting his surname as Brugh and hers as Gallatley, although other
contemporary sources note the spellings as Brough and Galletly (Source: SP/NRS OPR M 365/00 0010 0250 Kinclaven):
November 18th 1731
James Burgh and Grisal Gallatley being regularly proclaimed were also married.
The couple had at least ten children in Airntully, Kinclaven, Perthshire, between 1734 and 1755, with
the family initially worshipping at the Church of Scotland in the parish, before becoming strong adherents to the Associate
Congregation after its secession from the Kirk in 1740.
