      An Inventory of the personal estate of Alexander Jaffray is drawn at Aberdeen on the 24th day of December 1863 He died intestate on the first day of November 1863 The estate is valued at £290 and 13 shillings Debts due to the deceased include £5 from George Murray of Craigmill Pittodrie Somewhat drily the assessor says "Upon this debt no value can be put" so it is not included
      I asume that the Inventory is necessary for the handover of the estate to his son Alexander Jaffrey who is about to enter upon the possession and management of the deceased's personal estate
