First, we need to know the source of this in order to decipher it fully.

Otherwise, bap. = baptized, Godf. = Godfather, Godm. = Godmother.

Miln = Mill in Scottish and Coul is a town in Highland, Scotland.

Ibidem is a latin word meaning "in the same place." It's used in footnotes to indicate that the source is the same as the source just cited.
