  General Notes:

I can't find hin in 1841 or 1851 but in 1861 he was recorded as 50 born Brims, Caithness but this could be a rounding. His death certificate or at least the one that seems most likely has his age as 62 in 1869. Note that there were quarries around Hilliclay and Donald's last recorded occupation was Stone Quarrier. The 1807 baptism is the only one I can find mentioning Brim.

His signature on Janet Manson's birth entry is interesting, being of a series of shapes resembling Us, Ds and Os.
