FTM 2010 & 1985 birth becoming attached as parent of 1762 birth.

I have a problem with my husbands nephew born in 1985 (and his ancestors) somehow becoming attached as parents to the birth of my 4 x ggrandfather in Scotland. I have done a lot of work on my tree in the last week and if poss don't want to redo it. If I type in the correct name as the father then the name of the modern person in it's correct place gets changed too. I tried to detach the person but don't get the appropriate options and it appears that what I do to the names in the incorrect position also happens to the names in the correct possition. I have tried restoring from the .fmtb file but the same error has occurred. Whatever caused it the corruption has only occurred on or after 22 February as the partner of the modern version gave birth then and the baby appears in the incorrect spot as well. The odd thing is that in the pedigree view Robert & Danni show as the parents of Hew Gourlay (1762 - ####) but in the lower half of the screen their only child is listed as Isabella which is correct. She was born 22.2.2011.
Does anyone have any ideas of what I can do to correct the file. The relevant (correct) tree is on ancestry.
