Re: Old Scottish Place Name - "Naillien"

Thanks for looking into this for me. The place name comes to me directly from an application for membership in the "Son's of the American Revolution." It is reported that Samuel, a hatter, was born in Naillien on August 5, 1751. His wife was Grace Knowles.

My feeling is that he is likely from a more urbanized area, in that he made a living from being a hatter.

Thanks, again, for thinking it through.
