  • Notes 
    • With the discovery (Feb 2012) of William Runciman, baker in London with sons James and William of the right ages to be the Michigan James and William, the "cousin" theory is hereby put on hold, and the "brothers" one brought back into favour, along with bringing the Lauder baker family into Lineage 1a.
      This London connection certainly fits the family stories about the William who went to London, with children brought up in Wanton Walls with their cousins.
