All the other info

     David Manson and Alexander Malcom Watten, Par. of Watten, CAI, SCT, fr 1756 - 1758 were possibly related, ?cousins? Alexander and William Malcolm were witnesses to the respective christenings of David's sons James and John.1 David Manson witnessed the baptism of Esther Georgeson on 16 Feb 1766 Bower, CAI, SCT; IGI has 3 entries (all patron submissions) which have her as Esther or Easter and chr 16 Feb 1766 or 16 Feb 1765. The p/copy of the entry is indistinct, but further up the page is a Jan 1766 entry, so I've assumed Feb 16th 1766 and that the entry reads: Feby 16 Donald Georgeson in Kirk had by his wife Esther Miller a child baptized called Esther Wit: David Manson and John Stephen.7,8

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.
