He's the brother of my 4th cousin's husband  ;D ;D ;D

However, he only appears on the baptism record and as an abbreviation on his father's death cert. He's not on the censuses or MIs with his kin or anywhere else.

I can make it out to be Mr A Coutts, with a loop to start the first letter.

Thanks, Colin  :)

I've now tracked him and he's a William Armstrong Coutts/Coats who spent time with his maternal grandparents in Irongray and married an Agnes Brown in Sorn in Jan 1865. He died in Newington (Longmore Hospital)  on Oct 17th 1904 and was a schoolmaster.
His son,(another one for abbreviating) Thos A Coutts, was the informant.
