WebIntroThe Michigan James and William are now believed to be brothers rather than cousins, with the assumption that the "cousin" description may have crept into family lore as they were brought up with their cousins at Wanton Walls.
This conclusion comes from family stories about the baker brother who moved to London and died young being found in London, together with the baptisms of his children James, John and William.
There is a 66/67 match between a descendant of the Michigan William and of the Wanton Walls David and London birth information that shows that their common ancestor is indeed the John who married Elizabeth Familton, and brings the Lauder baker John into the family as their brother.
