James Simpson

ID# 5089, (c 1775 - 26 Jun 1860)
Birthc 1775James Simpson was born c 1775 at Tranent, Haddingtonshire, Scotland ,

Cannot locate details regarding any David and Catherine Simpson/Simson
As this information comes from James's death certificate - suspect it could be incorrect.

Due to naming patterns in Scotland, Robert, William and James are the most common male names coming down the lines.

I have located a possible birth:
James Simpson, born 9 Oct 1773 and Baptised 17 Oct 1773 in Tranent East Lothian
Parents: Robert Simpson & Catherine Sword.

There is a marriage of a Robert Simpson to Catharine Sword, 21 March 1772, Tranent East Lothian

Also a child Thomas Simson born 24 April 1785, Bapt 1 May 1785, Salton East Lothian.

More research is required.
