I have the honour to be a direct descendant of this fellow - he was one of my 4G Grandfathers - and I would dearly like to know more about his ancestors
That splendid monograph "A Short Memoir on James Young, Merchant Burgess of Aberdeen and Rachel Cruickshank his Spouse and of their Descendants," by W. S.

Is there any kinship between Robert FARQUHAR of Newhall and my 4G Grandfather?
