I've given my line only and not all the known children for each generation. I've given the 'after' date based on one day before the birth date of the last known child. I hope this makes sense.

I did look in the Register in the Dunfermline Library back in February last year and only found these two:

Dunfermline Abbey Interments:
James Sands, Sawyer of Viewfield Lodge age 73 died 10 Feb 1857 of 'old age' and buried 13 Feb 1857 New Ground.
