(12 March 1810 - )
|Father||William Henderson1 (say 1780 - )|
|Mother||Jean Duncan1 (say 1785 - )|
BMDB dataWilliam Henderson was born on 12 Mar 1810 Cowie Hill, STI, SCT.1 He was baptized on 25 Mar 1810 Logie, STI/PER, SCT; entry reads: Born William lawfull son to William Henderson and Jean Duncan at Cowie Hill March 12 1810 ?/B: Bapt 25th Ditto.1,2
All the other infoWilliam Henderson was considered as a potential duplicate of William Henderson, but this has been discounted; To date I've been unable to find anything on the family of William HENDERSON & Jean DUNCAN to rule their William completely out of contention as the husband of Margaret SINCLAIR but the family names and location lead me to believe that Margaret's husband is William, son of Archibald & Margaret (McEWAN) HENDERSON of the Bridge of Allan instead. Both father Archibald, and William were smiths at the Bridge of Allan, whereas William son of William & Jean (DUNCAN) HENDERSON were of Cowie Hill, Par. of Logie, where Cowie is SE of Stirling, and Bridge of Allan is NW.
As at Feb 2016 we now have a good set of atDNA matches between a descendant of William and Margaret (SINCLAIR) HENDERSON and descendants of both Margaret and James, his siblings, children of Archibald and Margaret McEWAN.
So I think this is now a rejected potential duplicate.1,3

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
