BP1934 identifies Mary's father as Sir Thomas Hope of Kerse, Lord Justice General, but the Justice General was Sir Thomas's son Alexander and the dates make it much more likely that she was of the later generation. TCB (vol 4, 'Moncreiffe of Moncreiffe', p336+), which supports some of the following, shows Sir Thomas as son of David (sic) Moncreiffe of Rapness in Orkney (d before 1649) by Barbara Baike and shows that Thomas m1.
