Surname: Howatson, Howat, Houatson, Houtson
Thanks for the link. That site is amazing. I didn't know that William Wallace
and Robert the Bruce hailed from that area. I find it interesting though.
I have a Marion Houtson(Howatson) that was chr in Auchinleck, Ayrs 26 apr
1797. She md James Brown 10 jun 1821. Their g-grandson, Charles Houtson
Brown named two of his sons...William Wallace Brown and Robert Bruce Brown.
I can only imagine that the legend had survived until the late 1800's in
a little tiny town in Idaho, USA.
In your OPR, do you find a John Howat b aug 30 1707 in Old Cumnock, Ayr?
parents were Patrick Howat b 1681 and Ellison McCroneon b 1685. John md
Elizabeth Howat(?)abt 1728.
