    Notes 
    • hyposthesis is that this is son of Alexander H & Alison Brown
      based on their son Andrew's death registry entry saying informed by BROTHER William
      1841 census would indicate he was a shoemaker but on death he is a mail contractor
      1861 census place is Blackbull Wynd and same street for Andrew's death
      why is his birth place given as Edrom (refer 1861 census) - seems like wrong place - but it is between Chirnside & Dunse
      =========================
      shoemaker in Dunse (source?)
