======================

It is said that the family is tied into Robert Burns (the poet) lineage but missing is at least one generation if not 2 or more to make the connection if at all ever possible; is it not true that everyone with the name 'Burns" is told that their line is that same as that of the dear poet? one time or other - that family tradition is. . . Researching Robert Burns' lineage has not help to prove or disprove this statement.

This was hired out mainly to the Scots Ancestry Research back in 1977-9 and 1986; the information in the source is as presented to me with no book, page etc. referenced etc. Since then I have used online resources that are "FREE" and access by other means to try and document the family history more and substantiate what the Scots Ancestry had done I have proven what they done is accurate and added things that they did not find at the time.

One photo in the book is of Purclewan Mill, Dalrymple. The caption apparently states:

A mill has stood on the Purclewan Burn for many years. The present building an L-shaped, double story random-rubble structure with attic dates from the early 19th Century, occupying the site of a much earlier mill. It was the older building that stood here when Robert Burns visited. The miller at that time was Allan Kilpatrick, whose daughter Nellie was the subject of Burns' earliest poem "Handsome Nell". The bard met the girl while they worked together in a field in 1773. Also at Perclewan was a smiddy, the smith being Henry McCandlish. His son James McCandlish or Candlish as he later called himself, became a close friend of Burns. The poet later described him as "The earliest friend except my brother that I have on earth, and one of the worthiest fellows that ever any man called by the name of friend."
