March 16th    John Shand in Burnside of Kinmintie had a Son
Shand            baptized named Alexr Witnesses James Duncan
                     in Brakens and Barbara Panton

Although the entry comes from the Monquhitter register, both Kinminty and Brackens are in the neighbouring parish of Turriff.

John Shand in Burnside of Kinmintie was a witness 19th August 1708, 12th August 1720, 19th September 1725, 23rd April 1726.

John Shand in Burnside was a witness 29th July 1722 and 28th May 1727.

John Shand in Kinmintie was a witness 22nd July 1720.

John Shand in Kinmintie had a daughter, Isobel*, baptized 7th December 1703 (Alexander Panton, Kinmintie, & John George, Delgaty).

I found these references to John Shand by reading every baptism in Turriff for that period. The William Shand from whom I am descended is probably the one born to John Shand in 1709.

The witness James Duncan, tenant in Brackens and factor to the laird of Tolquhon for his lands in Turriff, was married to Margaret Shand. They had a daughter Christian (1696 Poll Book).
