Re: Parish Records Abbreviations?

I'm sure it's obvious that I'm fairly new to researching so my question was more general in nature. I've been looking through parish records for John Baird in Lanarkshire (Glasgow), Scotland, Extracted Parish Records
For example:
Baird, John, weaver, B. and G.B., as mar. Agnes, l. dau. to Andrew Murray, weaver, B. and G.B. 13 Sep 1748

I understand weaver is the occupation what is B. and G.B.?
Not knowing what the abbreviations or method of recording is, I could read this to tell me 3 or 4 different stories!

Thanks for any help!!
