I would say it was certified by Ervine as being a more normal Scottish name but agree with all the rest, Dave.

Thanks Barbara.

Three different doctors on the page and a different three on the page with John's brother's death.

I was stuck with Charlestown until I realised it was pob for a son.

Seems some 1831 Dunfermline records have been lost. I could not find a birth/baptism on fiche in Dunfermline library for Adam:

30 March 1851 Census - Parish of Dunfermline - East Port St
Age Occupation Book Sched
James Sands Head 64 Sawyer Fife Torryburn 10B 80
Elisabeth Wife 63 Perth Culross
Adam Son 20 Weaver Fife Dunfermline


Regards,

Dave

Are the last two letters 're' ???

Er?i?re

Ok, it's not an 'r' because the others on the page are more upright.

So Ervine, although the 'v' does not look like the one in David in last column.
