Our thanks goes to David L. Hobkirk, and his Uncles Maxwell Hobkirk and the Reverend Walter Hobkirk for compiling and supplying most of the information on the "Hobkirk Family of Southdean."
See also the wonderful History of the Southdean Hobkirk Family created by Rosemary Irving.
(Memo: Some original parish records look like Jane Scott may have gone by the name of "Teany." This could also just be a fancy letter "J" which looks like a "T".)
Adam HOBKIRK's father may have been named John, since Adam's oldest son
was named John.
(In the I.G.I. records there is only one Adam Hobkirk listed with a father named John Hobkirk.
He was born 14 January 1750 in Cavers, Roxburghshire, Scotland.
The death record for Adam Hobkirk may show his age at date of death)
