Thank you again everyone, Capt. (Later Lt. Col. )John Taylor son of John Taylor M.A. is my direct descendant  my gt gt gt grandfather. There are certainly a lot of Falconars/Falconers out there and to confuse things further the family notes I have inherited say that Capt. John Taylor married a cousin Sarah Falconar Graham!
So yes there is very probably a link between them.

Hmmm. If Mary Falconer and Sarah Falconer were sisters, that would make Capt John Taylor and Sarah Falconer Graham second cousins. so that looks promising. You now have three children of Thomas Falconer and the former Miss Maitland - Alexander, Sarah and Mary.

Many thanks Forfarian
Yes that would definitely work but the proof is still elusive...
We're so close but it's still unproven by my reckoning.
I really do appreciate all your help thank you.
Best regards
Liz
