Hi Ruth thank you for your help all that information consolidates what we found but were unsure off.
Your help along with all the other here on Rootschat has been tremendous and I can't thank you all enough.  I am waiting on a letter from a cousin of Isabella Haig Stevenson who still lives in Banff.  So I hopefully will know more.  I will let you all know what comes of thats.
Thank you once again
Teresa

I know its a bit late but the exact wording of the birth cert reads

Isabella Haig Stevenson
Domestic servant
Usual residence; Wesley
cottage Gellymill, parish of Gamrie

John Duncan
Father
Blackhill,  Parish
of Banff

Thats the way its set out, I think the punctuation is correct for Isabella's as it could be a mark on the page . It is set well under the line.

Is it correct to think that at the time of the childs birth he  lived in that place but may not have come from there?

Yes. I think I tried to make that point several pages ago!

No more news just yet from Isobella haig Stevenson cousin yet but we have located a couple of children who have died that we did not know about, that were born in between my father the Union of Isabella and John Duncan and his half sisters who were born in the Union of Isabella and John Mitchell (dec).
