Closest for 'Milntonhead', a variant?...Miltonhead (Carluke Parish);

Many Thanks Rosinish

I have been looking at maps and that was the nearest i could find.
I also have a Baptism for another child which looks like Milnton so am guessing that is the same place.

Thank you for your time

How very unusual to have their child baptised without giving her/him a name  ???

Edit...or even daughter/son  ::)

After much Searching i found his name. Family search confirmed it was a Male.
The certificate belongs to Robert Lawrie  my 4x  great grandfather. ;D 
All his sibling's were named at baptism. Just my luck to belong to his line.
