All the other infoJames Wight and James Wight Midlem, Par. of Bowden, ROX, SCT, say 1685 were possibly related, The James married to Jennet Sword was my original "pick" for James the cautioner, and father of the bridegroom when his son James married Isobel Wood, but subsequent digging has led me to reject this id. However, they all lived in Midem, and are all probably related!3
On 26 Nov 1743 Maxton, ROX, SCT, James Wight was the cautioner for his son James at his marriage to Isobel Wood.1,4

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.
