My most distant ancestor, James Main, fathered a child out of wedlock in 1765. The mother was Agnes Russal, and the child was my ggggrandfather, John Main, who married Isobel Young in 1799 in Slamannan. James was working at Burnhead farm in Slamannan at the time. He later married Mary Mitchell and had 3 children: James, b. 1768 (Mary Walker); Janet, b. 1772; Janet, b. 1776 (Robert Aitken). I have been trying to find out more about Agnes. I found an Agnes, b.1745, Falkirk, to James Russal and Agnes Allan, an Agnes who married John Tennant in 1769 in Slamannan, an Agnes who married George Scott in 1767 in Falkirk and an Agnes who married James Liddell in 1772 in Slamannan. I would be interested to hear from anyone with knowledge of any of these couples.
