It was granddad!

Some excellent digging in the Scottish archives has given us a breakthru on the line of William of Crail.
We knew that William's orphaned children had been brought up by a Richard RUNCIMAN of North Berwick after his fishing disaster - but not how Richard was/might be related.

Phyllis has found the documentation that showed he was their grandfather.

Webpages yet to be updated to reflect this, and the new results that the feverish digging that is happening as a result.
Current candidate for the correct Richard is the one married to Janet GOURLAY, albeit that their William is slightly on the young side IF he was baptized shortly after birth.
