Note: there's also a William RUNCIMAN around Kirkintilloch, with connections to Campsie. But William isn't a sibling to George, as William's parents are James RUNCIEMAN & Mary GRAHAM. Any relation?
The other RUNCIMAN blacksmiths in the "near" area are those of Inchture, Perthshire family of John & Susan (DONALDSON) RUNCIMAN in the form of their son Alexander. Any connection is unlikely to be proven other than via the [a href="http://dnasurnames.info/lineages/spRUNCIMANLineages.htm">RUNCIMAN Surname DNA Project].
