Scope and content

Copies of documents relating to the administration, finance, members, and court actions of the Nine Trades. Trades in Dundee have co-operated since at least the sixteenth century to their mutual benefit. Nine of these tended to work together and this grouping gradually became more formalised. The trades involved were the Baxters (Bakers), the Cordiners (Shoemakers), the Glovers (originally Skinners), the Tailors, the Bonnetmakers, the Fleshers, the Hammermen, the Brabeners or Websters (Weavers), and the Waulkers (Fullers) who later united with the Listers (Dyers). The Nine Incorporated Trade of Dundee is still in existence
