You know, I wouldn't put it past my ancestors to do that!:)
Just another reason why I have to not jump to conclusions too quickly
Of course, John my GGGGgrandfather named his sons, in order, John, Allan, William and Angus.
Who knows where the Angus came from!


It is of course possible that Angus McBain was always known to his sons
as John. One of my neighbours has been known as Jean all her life, but
it was only when her husband died that her own children found out that
wasn't her registered name!
