    Notes 
    • The first five children were all born while William was a shepherd at Glensax Farm in the valley of Glensax Burn south of Peebles. The family appears to have moved to Edston Farm closer to Peebles, near the junction of the Tweed and Manor Water where William is still listed as a shepherd, before the birth of their next three children.
