    Notes 
    • Thatcher in Chirnside, Scotland (from birth records of children)

      ??? birth record is to an Andrew not an Alexander - previous thinking is his father was Alexander but actually his eldest son is Andrew also 'brother' William's eldest son is also Andrew (assuming I have eldest son on record)
