Hope someone can decipher the pieces I want, the file name of each says which part of the writing I  am looking for.

I was hoping one of them was ANGUS FLETCHER & ELIZABETH LEITCH - but I really think her surname is Erskine, and I am not sure of his first name doesn't look like Angus.

Many thanks

Hi  Could someone please decipher the various attachments for me.

Also what does CHILD 5 mean on the register of the birth of a child (in Scotland's people), does this mean that is the couples 5th child, I cannot find an answer to this anywhere.

Many thanks

Ross & Cromarty / John Ross 1740 husband of Margret MacKay possibly of Fearn
« on: Friday 29 September 17 10:05 BST (UK)  »
I have one child listed for John Ross and Margret MacKay and that is William Ross alias Braughter (born in Fearn) who married Margaret Sutherland.   Anything on his siblings or  either of his parents and his grandparents would be appreciated.
