  • Name Richard Rynsiman  [1
    Born Abt Apr 1701  North Berwick, East Lothian, Scotland Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 2, 3, 4
    • Assumed to be this Richard given the naming pattern of Richard & Jennet's children and the place connections (Dunbar/North Berwick/Whitekirk), although the 1701 baptism at Whitekirk to "John" RYNSIMAN & Jean WHITE, is more likely to William & Jean
    Christened 13 Apr 1701  North Berwick, East Lothian, Scotland Find all individuals with events at this location  [1
    • entry reads: John Rynsiman Jean White in this parish had a child baptised named Richard witnesses Richard Richeson & Thomas Olsen?
    Gender Male 
    WebIntro 1765  [2, 5, 6
    • William of Crail's death left 5 orphaned children, as detailed in the papers about the pay-outs to the widows and children of the fisherman drowned in 1765:
      ‘ Willliam Runcieman, a widower left 5 children and a Bastard: Janet Runcieman aged 16 Margaret 10 Elizabeth 8, Helen 5 John 3. The Bastard's name Mary aged 16 months.’ (Phyllis adds that this mention of 16 months is a puzzle and may be an error, as later minutes of the Widows and Orphans Fund, consistently identify Mary’s birth as at December 1764, which would make her around 16 weeks old at the time of this letter was written in April 1765).
      Grandfather Richard was paid for looking after three of them, Janet presumably considered old enough, at 16, to earn her own keep, Mary, "the Bastard" not his problem, and the two Catherine's assumed to have died young?
    Died Between 1768 and 1780  ?Dunbar, East Lothian, Scotland Find all individuals with events at this location  [3, 7, 8
    • the 1780 end date being based on the assumption that if he had still been alive when grddtr Helen married that he would have been the witness rather than her brother John, and the Dunbar being based on minutes accounting for the payouts to the orphaned children placing Richard back in Dunbar in 1766

    • Which Richard is William of Crail's father?
      Tentative id from extant established church registers is the Richard married to Jennet GOURLAY who married in North Berwick (Jennet's parish?) but baptised their children in Whitekirk & Tyninghame - which parish registers do not survive for the time period of interest - although Kirk session records do.
      Assuming William was baptized shortly after birth (Mar 1729), this would however mean he married at 19. Not impossible, just a little unusual.
      Aiding this id is the marriage of a Helen at Whitekirk in 1768, of an age to be William's daughter
