My wife is a descendant of William Meikle, 1714-1791. I have a quite an extensive list of William's descendants, certainly as far as Australia is concerned. The list is in my book that was published two weeks ago, called "Our Own World History." Naturally, in my book I deal with the claimed link to the Primrose family. Perhaps needless to say, Lord Rosebery never forwarded a reply to my letter. Some five years ago I went through the IGI with a toothcomb as far as the Meikles were concerned, especially those of Westlothian. However, I would still be interested in your information on the Meikles.
