About Alexander Rennie

I am unable to find the death notice for Alexander Rennie/Rannie born 1772 East Lothian. He was the son of George Rennie and ALISON Black. He married Elizabeth Brown in 2 June 1797.She left for South Africa in 1820 as part of Thomas Pringle's party.

He was still alive when his last child Charles Rennie was born in 1811, possibly Spittal.

What is interesting is that Thomas Pringle wrote about Elizabeth that the poor widow Elizabeth Rennie had received from a certain Captain Walker as a general discharge of obligations, a pittance of three pounds which her urgent necessities obliged her to accept of.

I am trying to find out why Elizabeth would of been paid this money, as Alexander was a farm worker. Possibly there was an uprising of some sort...

By the way Alexander's surname was spelled Rannie on the baptismal records of all his children.
