This is one of the weak links in gmfindley's family tree. With a birth date in 1512, and no dates on Christine (The only child listed on gmfindley's tree), and the grandaughter of Christian (Elizabeth Warrender (1530-1597)) is a solid record and she was born only 18 years after her "grandmother" means that both Christian and Christine each had their respective children at age 8... I am going to operate on the assumption that "Christine" is another name for "Christian" And that maybe this is a split record. Of course, that does put in question the entire problem with their respective husbands... which was the real husband? Or were these both two separate marriages, with only one producing Elizabeth? Because the data comes from only one tree I'm reluctant to assume this is one record and delete the other one just in case. But the evidence is overwhelming, so I'm making the "Christine" Entry anyway just in case. If research later confirms my theory, we can jut cut that entry free. Guy
If the above theory is correct, then this individual is known by both "Christine" and "Christian", though "Christian" is the name found in many records (and the spelling "Christine" was virtually unknown in Scotland in that period).

- The numbers beside each individual are of interest to some researchers. For details see help on Ahnentafel lists of ancestors. In a nutshell, the numbers are used to reveal the relation of the ancestor to the subject. For example, 6 corresponds to maternal grandfather.
