Just spoken to one of the lawyers I work with acta is act of event. It may
mean after the act or event (which would make sense in the context of below)
- might see if I can find a Latin dictionary

Subject: Fornication - Kirk Sessions
Can anyone translate the "apud acta" in the Kirk Sessions below:
"Fenwick 2 January 1843
Compeared Andrew Young and Elizabeth Gemmell confessing themselves to
have been guilty of antenuptial fornication and professing their
penitence, and having been rebuked and solemnly admonished by the
Moderator were cited apud acta to appear before the Session and
congregation on Sabbath first and be absolved from the scandal."
I am uncertain if I have the same Andrew YOUNG and Elizabeth GEMMELL, as
the couple I thought was mine were married July 1842 in Fenwick, Ayr.
Their first child I can find is Margaret Gilmour YOUNG who I have an Old
Parochial Register copy of her birth August 15, 1843. With these dates
I cannot see what their admonishment was for!
Can anyone tell me if I might have two different couples mixed up or any
other wisdom SKS could impart.
