David(6) Hopkirk was the second son of David(5) Hopkirk and Margaret Grieve. "The Hopkirk Family of Melrose, Roxburghshire" by Mary Perkins Hopkirk states that David was the eldest son, by he was most likely the second son. Since Scottish naming tradition says that the first son is named after the fathers father, the second after the mothers father, and the third after the father, James(6) is undoubtedly the eldest. Especially since both David(5) and Margaret's fathers were named James.
David(6) and Ann Goodall were married on 7 May 1839 in Perth, Scotland.
