To get this information, go to the LDS FS Search page (above); and key in the names of William's parents at the top-right, leaving the other fields "as-is".
Then go to the appropriate section of the Search Results.
If you expect several; but only one or none show up, drop the mother's Last Name and try again, looking for Births/Christenings around the expected era and the expected area.
That is the only variation of such searches, although occasionally adding the Country works - but may omit children born elsewhere.
Scanned IMAGEs of all of the original documents somplete with squiggly writing etc, should be available to VIEW and Download on Scotland's People-
William's Birth will be in the OPR Series as it was before 1855, the others will be in the SR Series atrting 1855 to present.
As the later Births show that the parents must have lived in to the post-1855 SR era, you should try to find their Death records on SP.
Normally these will have the names of their parents, ie William's grandparents, thus being an easy way to go back one more generation at least.
If any of those those grandparents lived in to the SR era - which does seem likely, their Death records should help you go back yet another generation to the great-grandparents.
To supplement those searches, also try the Censuses.
The 1841 and 1851 Censuses are likely to show William's parents living with their respective parents (William's grandparents).
Later Censuses may also show one or more of the ageing grandparents living with William's parents.
The earlier Censuses may similarly show William's ageing great-grandparents living with one of their respective children.
It may be worth checking in the Wills section on SP.
SP is pernickety on spellings of Last Names; and if you switch SOUNDEX ON, you can be flooded with frequently irrelevant results.
So on SP, you should also try "obvious" variants with Soundex Off, such as Monro, Cuik etc.
The LDS FS site is much more tolerant, finding generally a sensible range of variant spellings automatically.
You'll start developing lateral thinking!
