  General Notes:

In 1656 the baptismal register of Kilsyth parish Stirlingshire records the baptism of Alexander Steine, son to "Jon Steine in Lenzie":
"STEINE ALEXANDER JOHN STEINE/ M 27/04/1656 483/10 248 Kilsyth"
In the text of the record it says that a "testimoniall" was provided by "Jon Gartschoir ane elder", and that Patrick Gartschoir and Alexander Gartschoir witnessed the baptism.

"When he (Patrick Gartshore) died without issue the succession devolved on his immediate younger brother James Gartshore, D.D., Parson of Cardross. The doctor possessed the estate for some years, but as it was burdened with a liferent to his brothers widow, and encumbered with debt contracted by his brother while in the army; he, for payment of these obligations, assigned the property to his youngest brother, Alexander Gartshore, who was bred a merchant." 5 6
