About John Hunter, Sailor in Glasgow

JOHN HUNTER

Bogus Genealogy

It has been claimed that John Hunter, here treated, is the son of John Hunter and Catherine Reid. This is wrong. MyHeritage

Catherine Reid's husband was a mason in Glasgow, and they did have a son named John. He too was a mason there. This is confirmed by the burgess record of the elder John dated 26 October 1620 Glasgow Burgesses, 1573-1750: 55 and by the burgess record of the younger John dated 9 November 1648. Glasgow Burgesses, 1573-1750: 126 The younger John died in June 1671, having married Jonet Bogle and had a family with her.

It follows, therefore, that John Hunter, here treated, who married Jean Stevenson in 1644, is not the same person as John Hunter, younger, Mason in Glasgow
