Did you take your names and dates from the IGI? Their data don't always square with what's on Scotlandspeople. However, I've found a Robert Webster born in 1739 at St. Monans to William Webster and Christian Ramsay; and a Grizel Horsburgh born in 1744 at Elie to David Horsburgh and Isobel Robertson.

My own Pittenweem Horsburghs can be traced back to Elie.

Hi Harris,

Listing the names of their children in order can be useful as it may give a clue to their parentage if the Scottish naming pattern was used.
