    • Ref:The Scots magazine, Volume 49,May 1787,page 259 records the date of death as the 7th May, but Williams testament ,drawn up by his daughter Agnes,is clearly the 8th.

    Notes 
    • Williams testament was lodged with The Commisarret Record of Lauder(Register of Testaments) on 20 May 1793.

      William (recorded as William Kirkpatrick,Senior,General Merchant and Baillie of Dumfries)was a witness at the baptism of at least two of the children of William Kirkpatrick,Junior ,of Conheath & Newton,Surveyor of Customs.(son William and daughter Jane Forbes) The other wirness was John Fraser. This would indicate a close family connection.William Kirkpatrick,junior,was the son of Robert Kirkpatrick,of Over and Nether Glenkiln,and Henrietta Gillespie.

      William Kirkpatrick Senior married Henriet Kirkpatrick(daughter of Robert Kirkpatrick,of Over and Nether Glenkiln,and Henrietta Gillespie, and sister of William Kirkpatrick,Junior)As it is stated that they were cousins,and George Kirkpatrick ,of Knock, also named his son William,I have assumed that George's son William is indeed William,senior,and although there is no evidence to date that this is the case,it would seem correct.
