I don't know if I'm reading this right but nothing seems to add up. I've taken the 2 most unusual names, james boyd riddell and agnes rodger boyd and they don't appear to match what you have found. When were Agnes and James born?

You say Agnes married James Boyde but a far as I can see Agnes was his mother. Agnes seems to of married John Riddle.
