Hi all,
The following attachment is for a distant ancestor, Thomas Hume b. 1748 in Greenknowe but baptised in Stichill. I could swear the birth notice entry recorded from ScotlandsPeople says Andrew Hume but the transcription for both Scotlands People and Familysearch says John Hume. Am I imagining things? Furthermore the image gets murky as it is at the bottom of what appears to be a degrading page. if anyone can help transcribing this I would be very grateful!

Hi All, brand new member here... I have tracked my Hume family ancestors from St Giles, Cripplegate in London to Greenlaw and now to Greenknowe and Stichill. Does anyone have any knowledge of the family in this area between c1750-1790? I have found the birth record of Thomas Hume baptised at Stichill 26 October 1748 , son of John Hume, tenant of Greenknowe. This Thomas Hume m. Janet Coltherd in 1779 in Greenlaw and their son George b 1779 in Greenlaw also. He became a very successful brewer and was invited to London to oversea brewing of scottish ale in a London brewery. Can anyone help me uncover their story please?
