Text source

George Gibson was listed as a Scottish burgess in Posen in 1630, from Culross. That year Gilbert Blenschel [SSNE 1084] and Erasmus Lilithson [SSNE 1083], both from Aberdeen, also became burgesses of Posen. James Broun [SSNE 1080] was amongst his guarantors. Gibson was listed again in 1636 as a burgess, coming from Culross, along with Blenschel again (unless these were men with the same name). They all submitted letters from the King of Poland and had James Brown [SSNE 1080] as their guarantor. Additionally they promised to attend Catholic services and pay 900 florins to the poor
