Thank you for your prompt reply I do find it a shame when people standardise spellings as it tends to stop people thinking they belong to their family,you atre correct in that my copy of James and Ann's wedding record shows the name McBeath however Jame,s name appears as MacBeath in the Fencible Records but McBeath in The 1813 Clearance papers in 1795 Ann's Fther John "MacBeath" was fined 1/- in 1799 John Neil and Andrew McBeath gave to the Army Fund.
John in 1800 appears not to have survived as the name was reused in 1812 for another son.
Neil MacBeath 1804 is buried in Clyne Kirkton where I was privelaged to be involved in the cleanup last year Neil's son James was my Great Grandfather his daughter Margaret my Grannyand I am assured by living relatives that that was the spelling. Strangely enough i am related also to the other Family of MacBeath's in Clyne through the marriage of Catherine Reid to another James MacBeath.
I would be interested tio know the names of Neil and Catherine's sons and their ages? Neil is a family name and indeed I have a brother Neil
