At one time I did think so, but seemingly there was a David Herkes who married a Janet Hastie, and there is a James Herkes married to a Janet Hastie too. James Herkes was born 1809 in Gladsmuir, Janet was born in Innerwick 1811. Siblings up to date were Robert, Joseph, James and Jane Herkes all born in Stenton. ELN. Do you think there is a connection?
The David Herkes married to a Janet Hastie I don´t have information on.
