Potential parents of "our" Robert Abernathy
I did a survey of my 30,000 plus database on Abernathy / Abernethy to see if I could come up with some clue as to the general location in Scotland of "our" Robert (1st) Abernathy.

Midland counties: 8 thusly, Midlothian, Edinburgh or nearby: 7 possibles, Glasgow, Lanarkshire: 1 possible

Midland counties north of Edinburgh: 2 possibles (Fife & Banff)
Highland counties: none
Names of Fathers (mothers occasionally not named) included John, Arthur, Lowrence or Laurence, Cuthbert, Patrick, William, Andrew, James.
Not a single George!
