Thanks Ellie.

There are several born about the same time with marriages in E Lothian. That one looks too young to marry in 1897.

I don't think this tree is correct.

https://www.werelate.org/wiki/Person:Jean_Cockburn_(3)

William Runciman was born E Lothian. If they married in bride's and groom's parishes then Jean was born Midlothian not E Lothian.

The trees are all wrong. William didn't die in E Lothian.

Death 1873 RUNCIMAN WILLIAM M 86 LEITH SOUTH EDINBURGH CITY/MIDLOTHIAN 692/02 0316
 
If the bride married in her parish and father is a Thomas then this one not the one born E Lothian.

About 5 different spellings for Runciman.
 
The tree and the extracted batch record don't agree.

Tree: Jean b. 15 Jan 1785 ?

Jean b. 13 Nov 1785 ?? Also not sure Jean was baptised on the day she was born.
Batch: C119997
 
Is there any tree that has Jean in post #1 NOT married to William Runciman ?

Thanks,

Dave

Not to worry, Dave.. there are about 5 public trees that have her [some are doubled-up, i.e. more than one tree for same person or for a sibling]. One has this marriage, others have Runciman
"Marriage
13 Apr 1799 Cranston,Midlothian,Scotland
Thomas Nasmith (Naesmyth)
(1778–1861
)"
