Year: 1718

Eleventh Entry from Top:
August 10, 1718, William Winter has a son Alexander in Cult, Angus
Thirteenth Entry from Bottom:
October 19, 1718, John Winter has a son Alexander in Clova, Angus.


Year: 1731

October 6, 1731, Alexander Winter has a son Charles in Doll, Angus. We suspect that Doll is the old Scottish word for Dell. Note the location of "The Doll" in the very center of the map along the White Water River. James Scott Winter's father was Charles Winter, however unlikely this is his father as he was born in 1797, making him 66 at James' birth. He could however be his grandfather.


The first entry in the document below "June 10th Alexander Winter in Doll had a son baptized at Mulie by the Revernd Mr. (Robert) Trail, Minister of Panbride Church who was there all the goat milk named Charles." An entry in The Scottish Antiquary, Or, Northern Notes & Queries, Volumes 1-4 states, "Hollinshed, in speaking of the 'Wild Irish,' says that with them gentlemen's children were baptized in milk." This might suggest that Alexander Winter was of Irish descent.

In this map and the next few we see The Doll, where Charles Winter was baptized. The maps are at different resolutions.Area today is know as Glen Doll.
