"18 February 1610
Johnne Strachen and mariorie makky ane daughter named Helen williame chalmer robert crwkshank(?) andro mellin witnesses"
NB The IGI index lists the mother's name here as Margaret Makky. A look at the written OPR itself makes clear this is an error. Her name is written in the the old Latinate form of 'mariorie' for Marjory. An elongated 'y' from February above the name makes it at first glance appear to have a 't' at the end, but there is no 'g' and no 't' in fact. 1
Helen married Reverend Mr John MIDDLETON Minister of Rayne. (Reverend Mr John MIDDLETON Minister of Rayne was born in 1610 2 and died on 4 August 1653 2.)
Helen next married John GORDON of Rothney, son of Alexander GORDON of Rothney and Unknown, after 4 August 1653. (John GORDON of Rothney was born about 1605.)
