If he married in Murfield,likely born there also,or other Parish which is

very near.People could not travel long distances,bad roads,horse and wagon.

Usually if born there ,stayed there.Print out a parish map,and you can

see all locations.A days travel about 7 miles.

Born 1579 in Murfield to William and Elizabeth Thornton. I have the line going further back but I'm still fleshing it out with dates. Hope that helps :)
