"Scotland Births and Baptisms 1564 - 1950", this is online at the Family History Center web site and I believe this film can be ordered there. I will see and if anyone has access to the film would they please let me know. One of the listings is:
"Robert Abirnethie who was born 7 May 1628 at Inveresk, with Musselburgh, Midlothian, Scotland and his father was Richard Abirnethie." Lived at Inveresk, Midlothian, Scotland.
That is all that was on that record and I believe this Robert to be our Robert Abernathy who landed in the Virginia Colony in 1652 and married Sarah Cubisha. At least he (Robert) was born at the right time and at the right place. This area around Edinburgh, Scotland is where Major Andrew Abernethy lived - from earlier messages on the Abernathy forum. Another Robert Abirnethie was born at Glasglow, Scotland in 1620. Some are spelled "Ebirnaithie" in these records. You can read more on message number 2983 on this forum and follow ups and do a search for Major Andrew Abernethy of the Covenanters War.
