Well that's slightly less exciting..Ha, but thanks. I'll be in Edinburgh and have a few other names to check out, so that may be a great starting point. Thanks for the tip--I'm still checking out the cemeteries though!

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but facts are chiels that winna ding, and I'd hate you to go off on a wild goose chase when your time is likely to be limited.

I wonder if "Gain" is a mistranscription or abbreviation for Gavin?

So has anyone found more on Gain Robinson? We have Gain on our family tree on ancestry.com ... the museum of maritime & ships in boston says he could be the father of john robinson-of the robinson tea chest...on display now at the museum.  John is my 5th or 6th great-grandfather. So i would like to know for sure on him also...I've tried attaching a couple.of things to share...but am not having luck.
