Have you read the Forteviot Kirk Sessions records yet. You will find that a Samuel Gilloch(k) was given two shillings and sixpence (Scots or English currency) for the purchase of a bible, and I believe it was one of his sisters who was given formal permission to beg on the streets.
My genealogy line is connected somehow but I haven't managed to make the connection yet.
Keep hunting.
I can trace my line back to the birth of Thomas Gilloch in 1705.
There was also mention of a William Gilloch in the Register of the Great Seal of Scotland many years before, accused of "settling the Egyptians" This means that he was accused of allowing a band of gypsies to stay on his lands for a time. A no-no in those far off days. He was acquitted of the crime!
