PARENTS OF WILLIAM GRANT, b. abt 1777 Cromdale (then in Inverness-shire)

Classification: Query
Surnames: GRANT
My husband's 3rd great-g'father William GRANT, born abt 1777 in Cromdale, served in the Strathspey Fencibles, Argyll Fencibles and Inverness-shire Militia from 1793 to 1821, then was the innkeeper of the Grant Arms, Grantown-on-Spey, until his death in 1845 (buried in Cromdale cemetery). He married an Englishwoman, Sarah GREEN, in 1806 and they had 10 children from 1812 to 1832 (names below).

DESPERATELY NEED THE NAMES OF WILLIAM'S PARENTS, probably born in Cromdale around 1750-55. Any help most gratefully appreciated! Below, for anyone tracking Grants, are William & Sarah's children. Some may have names you're looking for.
