OBSERVATIONS
The schedule above should be read with the notes below. The date of the note corresponds with the addition or removal dates of
Councillors on the schedule.

1722, September 6
The sd. day the sd. Magistrates and Council Conform to there
formar privileges Have purged out of there number John late Bailie of Maybole and Thomas McKie Wright in Maybole and have by plutality of voats nominat and choise Alexr. Girvan and Robt. Alexr. Merts. in Maybole In place of those purged to be Councillors.

1723, January 8
It does not appear in the minute in whose place Paterson was
admitted; indeed there does not seem to have been any vacancy.

1724, May 14
The reason for purging Smith is by the Minute attributed to
their ordinary custom to change two yearly and therefore they think proper to change one this year.

1724, December 30
Note. Paterson’s admission is now explained by the expulsion of
McMurtrie. The previous notice of his election must have been an error in the record.

1726, December 31
Note. Appointed in the room of one awaiting whose name is not
mentioned.

1743, October 18
It does not appear that any person was nominated to supply
the vacancy occasioned by Campbell being put out.

1743, October 22
Note. Fletcher was voted in place of William on 30 December 1724
and it does not appear by the minute when he was purged out, probably he was one of the three mentioned in the minute of 15 October 1742.

1750, January 5
6 November 1766 Elected a Bailie

1751, September 28
It is not said in whose place Thomas Kennedy came in.

1760, October 8
The minute does not say the cause of Nimmo and Ronald’s removal, but only that McCarrie and Niven were elected in their place. Mr. Niven elected a Bailie in October 1770

1770, October
It is not said in whose place these Gentlemen were appointed.
Their nomination seems to be a post facto being in different ink altho the same hand. Probably over a Glass.

1771, December 6
James Fergusson Writer in Maybole appointed Town Clerk in roome
of Claud Hamilton deceased. See minute of that date.

1772, July 31
Mr. James Wright Minister if the Gospel and Thomas Logan Surgeon
admitted Burgesses.

1773, October 6
By minute of this date and on the assumption that the Cross of
Maybole as it stands at present is an obstruction and Hindrance to Coaches and Carriages as they pass and repass along the street it was ordered to be removed.

1775, October 19
Note. When Robert Smith writer was introduced as a Councillor is
not shown in the Minute. He however died as one.

1776, October 12
Note. There is no other authority for placing this man as a
Councillor than that he signs the Minute of 5 February 1776, and in the minute of 12 Oct. 1776 is designed as such.

1781, October 24
In regard that the Council is not full but the Minute does not
mention the number awaiting or the names.

1785, October 29
In regard that there is many of the old Councillors deceased
and thereby a vacancy of Councillors.

1792, March 19
In consequence that the numbers of Councillors are greatly
diminished. (and same date ref. McLeonan and Niven) Not being fifteen besides the Bailies and Treasurer Elected 1 Novr. 1793 but placed here by mistake.

1792, November 3
Admitted in consequence of the death of several of the
Councillors whose names are not mentioned 26 October 1773. At this Election no leat was sent to the Earl of Cassillis as formerky Council not being full.

1796, October 21
It does not appear in whose place he was elected.

1802, June 4
That by the death of several Councillors of said Burgh
these Gentlemen were admitted Councillors. (and same date ref. Fulton) Burgh is not now just full.

1808, April 16
Made a Burgess at the same time. It does not say in whose place
he succeeded as a Councillor. He is only alluded to as a Councillor to Cast the Stent. His appointment as such is not seconded although he afterwards signs the minute.

1810, 20 October
Mr. McAdam as a Councillor seconds a motion for the admission of
John Goudie Senr. As a Councillor but there is no records of his own admission, of the same date he is elected a Bailie.

1814, February 8
