Morning Brian

I wonder if this is the 1764 William's Birth, on the LDS Family Search site-

www.familysearch.org


name:

William Laing



gender:

Male



baptism/christening date:

05 Aug 1764



baptism/christening place:

DUFFUS,MORAY,SCOTLAND



birth date:





birthplace:





death date:





name note:





race:





father's name:

William Laing



father's birthplace:





father's age:





mother's name:

Isobel Mason



mother's birthplace:





mother's age:





indexing project (batch) number:

C11131-2



system origin:

Scotland-ODM



source film number:

990728



reference number:


========================

If it is, these appear to be siblings and the marriage of the parents-

William Laing
Scotland, Births and Baptisms, 1564-1950
spouse: Isobel Mason
child: William Laing


William Laing
Scotland, Births and Baptisms, 1564-1950
spouse: Isobel Masson
child: John Laing


William Laing
Scotland, Births and Baptisms, 1564-1950
spouse: Isobell Mason
child: Jean Laing


William Layng
Scotland, Marriages, 1561-1910
marriage: 25 Feb 1748 Rafford,​Moray,​Scotland
spouse: Isobell Mason


William Laing
Scotland, Births and Baptisms, 1564-1950
spouse: Isabel Masson
child: James Laing


==============================

WL b 1764 is listed as the author of the appropriate section of the Second Statistical Acoount; BUT with the qualification that it was actually his assistant, James Ferguson, who actually compiled it!

==============================

The son of WL b 1764 is listed in the Ecclesiastes Fasti of Scottish Ministers, as also being a minister.

The entry also mentions that his briother, David, was an antiquariian, so possibly David compile notes on the family's ancestry.

==============================

I had a longer follow-up in preparation but lost it, hence this abbreviated version.

Alex
