15/03/2020 - Angus Fleming's origins

I have recently updated my intensive research project on the Fleming family. It built on my earlier research that enabled me to identify the parents of my 4G-grandfather, Angus Fleming (1800-1837): James Fleming and Mary Sinclair of Blantyre, Lanarkshire, Scotland.

The updated research report amends some of the earlier detail. More importantly, it documents my reasons for identifying James Fleming's parents as Robert Fleming and Janet Hamilton (who were married at Avondale on 9 April 1752).
