    History & Achievements :
         I think his Father, William, some 8 years after his son's  birth (William), married a Mary Walker (21/5/1826 - O.P.R. Chapel of Garioch) and a family of some 6 stepbrothers and sisters resulted; - Alexander(1829) Mary (1831) John (1833) Catharine(1835) Elizabeth (1837) & Anne Simson Sivewright(1840). Scottish & English Census records from 1841 do NOT show a William living with this family and I'm thinking maybe (because of his illegitimacy) he was cared for  by either Williams (his father's) Parents (George Sivewright/Jean Donald) or Ann Watts Parents (Unknown)
