Note: Crail Weavers: 'John, son of deceased William Runciman, mariner in Crail, bound apprentice to John Jamieson, late deacon, 14 June 1780

It's likely that John Jamieson is closely related to young John Runciman bearing in mind Jamieson is his mother's maiden name. This indicates that John returned to Crail at some point, possibly around the age of 14, to take up this apprenticeship. His ties with North Berwick presumably remained strong (all his Runciman family would have been there or in its surrounds) as he marries Jean Barrie there and chooses Dirleton in East Lothian for the family home.
