Having looked at the testament dative of Alexander Sutherland of Woodend (d. 03 Aug 1793 near Stirling), son of William Sutherland, brewer, I am now convinced that William Sutherland, brewer, was identical with William Sutherland, merchant who married Euphemia Eason.  This William was apparently the son of Thomas Sutherland of Keam and Margaret Rhind.
Alexander Sutherland of Woodend's executors were his next of kin, descendants of his grandfather, another Thomas Sutherland of Keam, by his second wife Marjory Watson.

William Sutherland of Roscommon who died in 1747 was not the same person as William Sutherland, brewer in Edinbugh, who died in 1759.

From this we have:

Thomas Sutherland of Keam, d. 14 May 1727 in Duffus
= (1) 13 Jul 1676 in Duffus, Elizabeth Sutherland (daughter of the 1st Lord Duffus?)
|

|
+-->James Sutherland, portioner of Keam, b. c. 11 Oct 1692 in Duffus
|
+-->Kenneth Sutherland, b. c. 23 Apr 1700 in Duffus
|
+-->Katherine Sutherland, b. c. 1 Jun 1701 in Duffus

Thomas Sutherland of Keam, b. c. 6 Aug 1686 in Duffus, d. by 1723

William Sutherland, merchant and brewer in Edinburgh, d. 16 May 1759 in Edinburgh

Hi, 

Thanks for all this information. It doesn't help in finding the ancestors of Erick Sutherland (father of Jean Sutherland who married Lewis Anderson) but it opened my eyes to the fact that the elusive link to the famous (and infamous) Sutherland family may have come through the Anderson line.

I do have the marriage of Leonard Anderson to Katherine or Marjory Sutherland, but it never occurred to me that this is where the link was. Just goes to show how you can be blind to clues in information you already have.

So I'll go hunting and see if this time I can connect the dots.
