brigidmac I still think what newuser found is correct. I had a look at the Testament/Will of Patrick Colquhoun and I agree that Mary Colquhoun is Isabella Lamonts mother.

 Her younger son was named after her uncle Patrick Colquhoun.

Looking at the names of the children again I see the last son has a surname McMillan in his name. He is called Robert McMillan Ross

So my thoughts are was James Ross's mother Helen McMillan ?
