Re: John Hannay of Sorbie, bro of Robert in Boghouse 1602
It was my impression that "BogHouse" was an unkind synonym for "Sorbie", both names derived from it being mostly surrounded by swamp.
I'm going to repeat that back in a slightly different format to make sure I understood what you were trying to convey.I'm using the leading numbers and dots to indicate generation depth (3s are children of the immediately preceding 2s, etc.).
1. Patrick AHannay of Sorbie b: c. 1537 in Sorbie, WigtownShire, Scotland
2.. ? Hannay
3... Patrick Hannay of Sorbie
2.. Alexander A Hannay b: c. 1567 in Sorbie, WigtownShire, Scotland d: before 1612-03-10 [one source says an Alexander died 1612-12-16 in a skirmish at the Cruives of Cree... or is that a different Alexander] m: UNKNOWN b: c. 1570 in Sorbie, WigtownShire, Scotland
3... John Hannay of Sorbie inherited Kirkdale in 1613 d: 1640 [is this the one said to be burgess & baillie of Canongate from about 1612 to 1620? or someone completely different?] m: Dorothy Stewart of Tonderaghie
3... Archibald Hannay
3... William Hannay m: Isabel Vaus
3... Patrick Hannay the poet
3... Sir Robert Hannay of Mochrum Park 1st baronet of Nova Scotia b: c. 1597at Kirkdale, KirkcudbrightShire, Scotland d: 1657-01-08 or 1658-01-08 at Dublin, Ireland m: Jane Stewart b: c. 1600 at Mochrum, KirkcudbrightShire, Scotland d: 1662-03-22 at Christchurch, Dublin, Ireland
3... Andrew Hannay
3... Margaret Hannay m: Sir Alexander Stewart of Garlies
and then you quoted:
"In 1582, Alexander Hannay, a younger son of [???? Hannay of] Sorbie, purchased the lands of Kirkdale in the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright."
Was that 1532 or 1582?
Some have either an Alexander or a Patrick marrying Anne McKie along about here in the tree; the peerage books favor Patrick (son of John, grand-son of Alexander, ggs of Patrick; 2ggs of John & Elizabeth/Isobel; 3ggs of Alexander; 4ggs of Robert; 5ggs of Odo of Sorbie) as her husband,
while rev. JAM Hanna seems to have reported it as Alexander son of Donald.
Is this the "Alexander A'Hannay 1st of Kirkdale"? (uhhh, son of Donald, grand-son of Patrick, ggs of John & Elizabeth/Isobel, 2ggs of Alexander; 3ggs of Odo of Sorbie?)
Or is there supposed to be another Patrick in there per the numbered generations which I'm missing in my lists of great-grands?
Or am I conflating by bringing in another Alexander from some other branch?
Still confused after all these years...
