Well,

The highland naming pattern is:

1st Son - father's father
2nd Son - mother's father
1st daughter - mother's mother
2nd daughter - father's mother

So.....if they followed the pattern that would make Isaac's parents Robert & Christina and his wife's parents Catherine & William.....do we know if this matches his wife's parents? I don't know her name so I can't really check....perhaps we should be looking to see if there is a Robert & Christina Sutherland in the Watten area.....couldn't hurt to see if we have options  :-\

Are we missing any children perhaps? There is a lack of any John's amongst the children....interesting though that they seem to have named their 1st son after the mother's father and their second daughter after the mother's mother.....it is backwards!! Oh well perhaps we are looking for a William and Catherine Sutherland as parents for Isaac....the Catherine bit is right we think  :-\

I just checked and all my Scottish families right up to the 1920's used the Scottish naming pattern to the letter...it is a very Scottish thing to do  ;)

I can't see the code here..not knowing the pieces but parents of Isaac are John  ( so James? maybe we are looking for a James not a John Sutherland) and Catherine Gunn

Margarets parents are Robert Buchanan and Christian Sutherland

Just had a thought...when did Isaac and Margaret marry?

Perhaps they had a son named John and a daughter named Christina/Christian before the others? Maybe the first Christina died early??

He doesn't seem to does he!! He must have been a radical to go against the stiff Scottish tradition  ;D

I just wish he had used the pattern...Grr, back to the drawing board....

I am not sure if it is of use or not but I found this website with numerous Sutherland's of Watten recorded, perhaps it will assist...

http://www3.telus.net/kamuwija/Suth10.pdf

I think the Donald Sutherland mentioned on the first page (born in 1720) may be the father of my Jean Sutherland (from my Watten family)...something for me to keep anyway for reference  ;)
