(1) This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.
(2) This page, which was first released on 12.10.21, shows 2 of the families mentioned in 'Connections with Glasgow's Merchant House and City Authorities' (which may be seen here, PDF opens on a new tab). That schedule was one of the family trees included in 'Familial but Unfamiliar Roots' by Peter Barns-Graham, Stirnet's founder. That book is referred to on History of the site.
