This register only gives the name of the father and the place. Births run 1658-1711 and 1711-1783 (very sparse 1755-65) and 1783-1819. Latterly it is very jumbled with many omissions partly rectified years later. Marriages run 1653-91 and 1787-1854.

As far as Katherine Ferguson is concerned, I ruled out the original Kilmadock choice as she died in 1863, unmarried. There are two possibilities in the Dunblane record,
(1) 1789 to Peter, and (2) 1793 to John.

In the '41 census John Lawrie gave his age as 50, actually 52, and Katharine as 45. Ages in the '41 census were notoriously inaccurate, but I suggest she would have been born between 1791 and 1796. However (2) was illegitimate, so for want of any other proof I have picked (1).

For want of marriages and mother's names, this tree is purely speculative on my part, linking the families as sensibly as I could. There is no Duncan in the record (1725), and so my best guess would be with Duncan in Bows of Kilbryde, a brother to Donald.
