Hello,Alexander,wondering if you got any further with the William Hastings/Pyper story.I found his grave last week but it gave no mention of Hastings.It showed he had 6 other children(besides our ancestor,James,)who died mainly in their 20's.I have only found a record of one of them,Jane,38,who died of tuberculosis.I'm guessing that could have killed them all.Jane was married to a David CAIRD.
I also wonder if William Hastings was adopted.I found a birth of a William Hastings in 1796,in Durris, to a James Hastings,mother Binny Muckle(can that really be a name!).At that time a George Pyper married Helen Burness were married in Marykirk and had one daughter,no sons that I can find. Could he have been taken in by them and only changed his name in later life in order to inherit.
Please can you let me know if you found the real story,before I come up with anymore 'theories'.
Happy New Year to you,Regards,Elizabeth
