Re: Archibald Arnott (1771-1855)
According to the family history in "The House of Arnott" published in 1918, Dr Archibald Arnott was born NOT in 1771, but in 1772.
This book refers to an inscription in Ecclefechan cemetery:
"Sacred to the memory of Archibold Arnott, Esq, Kirkconnel Hall, born 18th April 1772, died 6th July 1855..."
