My full name is -
Alexander Lockhart Simpson DOW
and I am the fourth generation; but fifth holder of that name.
If anyone has additional information helping to identify its source, I would appreciate receiving it.
The name suddenly appears in 1839 with the birth of my G-Grandfather, without obvious sources, either collectively or individually.
For all its apparent importance in my direct line, it does not appear completely or partially in collateral or earlier lines that I am aware of.
Legend has it that "Simpson" is connected with the ancestral family of Sir James Young Simpson (Anasthaesia Gynaecology); but again I have not been able to establish this, the only clue being that the wife of the first ALSD was Barbara Young.
All are based in and around Edinburgh, Scotland.
ALSD 5 (Self) b 1935
ALSD 4 (Father) b 1900, d 1977
ALSD 3 (Grandfather) b 1872, d 1917
ALSD 2 ("brother" of Grandfather)
b 1864, d 1866
ALSD 1 (Great-Grandfather) b 1839, d 1914
married Barbara Young, b 1843, d 1874
George Dow (2xG-Grandfather)
b 1795, d bef 1881
married Janet Bailie, b abt 1800, d bef 1881
Thanks for any help received.
