Note that Thomas Balfour was christened Thomas McCrindle Balfour on 05/06/1846 (OPR Tarbolton 619/ 0030 0218 FR615) and was the last child of Isabell Balfour (nee Kennedy), Margaret McCrindle's sister.

The 1861 and 1871 Census records for Janet Kennedy have not been checked. She died at Corsehill Road Dreghorn on the 3 September 1871. Her death certificate shows that Janet never married. Her recorded age at death was 71. However, in the absence of a christening record, the 1851 Census record is probably a more accurate indication of her age and suggests a birth date of about 1802. Informant of death was nephew John McCrindle.
