M, #9188, b. circa 1550
FatherUnlinked Cheynes in Aberdeen before the 1696 Poll
      A James Cheyne had a daughter with Janett Maiklenand (Maitland?) in Saint Nicholas Parish, Aberdeen, 1573. No marriage record was found.
The same year a James Cheyne had a daughter with Mariore (Marion?) Burnett. No marriage record was found. I am assuming that both fathers were the same James.

28 February 1573. The following is a transcription from the Register of Baptisms of Illegitimate Children, Parish of Saint Nicholas, 1573-1579, Frame 164: "The last day of Februare1573 zeuas?
