I am trying to establish whether my gg grandfather, Robert Robertson (b.1807 Stewarton, Ayrshire)was from the Clan Donnachaidh. The funeral notice of his wife Euphemia Galbraith Affleck (b. 1810 Ayr, Ayrshire)reads as follows:
"ROBERTSON - On the 31st December at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr John McNeil, "St Vincent", High Street, Northcote, Melbourne, Victoria. Euphemia Robertson nee Euphemia Affleck, eldest daughter of the late William Affleck, of Ayr, Scotland, and widow of the late Robert Robertson, grandson of the last Laird of Straun, Perthshire, Scotland, of Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Kilmarnock, Scotland, aged 90 years. Home papers please copy."
Robert Robertson's parents were:
James Robertson (c 1779 Stewarton)/Jean Boyd (1780 Beith)
James's parents were:
Robert Robertson (c1742 Stewarton/Jean Steel(1745 Stewarton)
Robert's parents were:

Hi
I am trying to find information of a John Robertson born 1809, father James. I do not know of his birth place but know that his father, James, was classed as a gent and John became on architect in London first working for John Claudius Louden and thereafter for Joseph Paxton, later Sir, at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire.
Do you have any information on Roberts brother who might be the John I am looking for.
Best regards
Fraser
