Of course - my apologies.

This is a Baptism for Robert Baird (1698) in Muiravonside. He's the son of William Baird & Beatrie Merry.

Here's what I have:

I've also enhanced the exposure to try and make it easier to read the text of the entry...

Ancestry indicates the mother is Emie Kiming; however, other trees show here as Emlie Cumming. So instead of a 'K' or 'B', could it be a capital 'C'?

Ive gone with the first letter of his wifes surname as K as you said, but Im not 100% convinced. Looks a lot like the b in the next word baptisit?
We really need another 'K' to compare it to.

Here's the bottom half of the page? Not sure if there's a 'K' hidin in there  ;D

Evening (at least it is here in Vancouver)...

The record I'm supposed to be seeing is the baptism of Christian Thomsone, female, baptized on 12 Jan 1600 to John Thomsone and Emie Kiming.

Think i can find it anywhere - No!

Please help with the translation and location on the page
