Biography

Walter Runciman [1]

Born 12 Apr 1810 Irvine, Ayrshire, Scotland

Only one census disagrees about his age, in 1851 he is shown as 46, which would be abt 1805. Others agree abt 1810.
Birth not recorded East Lothian, prior researchers have Ayrshire, but the only two Ayrshire OPR baptisms (Scotlands People, wildcard R*n*m*n*) are a 1683 William, and Walter's brother Peter in Irvine, as RANSOMIN, in 1808. So not established church in a surviving record anywhere in Scotland found as yet.)[2][3][4][5][6]
A source for the exact birthdate/place from Steve Gibbs' family file has now been found - his Merchant Seaman's ticket Henderson-2297 16:51, 7 December 2016 (EST) [7]

Death Registered 1878 Qtr 3 Dist of Hexham, Northumberland, England[8][9]

Buried Jesmond Old Cem., Northumberland, England

Husband: Walter Runciman
Wife: Jane Finlay

Parents Married 23 AUG 1806 Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland

Transcr. of Innerwick entry shows: "Edinburgh Aug 23rd - Walter Runciman sailor and Marion Runciman of Innerwick parish were married irregularly by Joseph Robertson Minister. The said Marion Runciman having applied to get her marriage sustained and registered after rebuke: the same (illegible) was ordered and a certificate allowed her upon removal from the parish"
The Edinburgh entry however, for the same date, read: "Willm (sic) Runciman sailor & Marion Runciman Daughter of Thos Runciman Plewman Thorntonloch Gave up their Names for marriage Willm McKay & Alexr McKay"
Given the exact date Innerwick and Edinburgh, "Willm"'s occupation, William in Edinburgh surely has to be Walter?[19][20][21][22][23][24]
