Ian, not a common name, if you Google,  Vannan, Bo'ness, there's a connection to Robert Burns.

Tobias Balk married Janet Vanan in the parish of Clackmannan on 19th December 1746 (per SP image).  Ten months later their son John Bachop was baptised also in Clackmannan. (John Bachop lawful son of Tobias Bachop and Janet Vanan, Clackmannan (per SP Image)).

It is apparent that parish clerks had great difficulty in spelling the surname Bauchope, Bachop or similar. How should it be pronounced?  But Balk, Baulk etc ?

Based on her baptism date, Janet appears to be about 15 when she married Tobias.  SP provides three Tobias Bauchops who could be Janet's husband. All three baptised between 1710 and 1714 - one in Alloa, the others in Clackmannan.   However a marriage between a 37 yr old and a 15 year old?

Not knowing the area could anyone suggest a iikely graveyard, please?  Inscriptions recorded?
Any other thoughts please?

Regards
Reiver

Spelling was inconsistent, well into the 19th century in Scotland, people wrote what they thought they heard.

Bauchop
Bau - as in football, or fitba'
ch   - loch, not lock
op   - I think as in operation rather than as in open, unsure
