Dear Leo, Ian, et al.,

Following is the descent from Mungo Mure of Rowallan (d. 1547)
to those lines currently showing links on Genealogics (ID #'s shown
below). I have thus far only traced the male line descent to Sir
William Mure of Rowallan (d. 1657), author of 'The Historie and
Descent of the House of Rowallane'.

There will be one additional post at least, which gives the
corrected descent from Mungo Mure of Rowallan to William Cunyngham
of Brownhill, ancestor of Alexander Hamilton and Daniel Roberdeau.

Cheers,

John *
