Includes Thomas of Innerwick
Descendants of Thomas & Alison (GRIEVE) of Innerwick (Lineage 1c), have a close genetic match with descendants of William of Crail (Lineage 1b), the Earlston/Wanton Walls Runciman family (lineage 1a), and to Alexander of Meikle Pinkerton (lineage 1d).
The tentative paper trail linking 1b to 1c has been dispoved so it's back to the drawing board.
Charts only show those I have researched, only descendants still with the surname RUNCIMAN, and their spouses, and usually only deceased RUNCIMAN family members.
Exceptions include direct lines down to researchers included elsewhere on the site, or for DNA project participants who have agreed to be shown in the latter project.
Should you wish to be included in your relevant chart, please contact the webmistress, using the link in the page footer.
So, in general, charts are by no means complete. Please refer further queries to the researcher(s) listed for the line.
Where there is doubt, conflicting evidence for relationships, or additional published information exists, this is usually discussed on the appropriate person's page, follow the link and make up your mind from the information and sources shown.

For Thomas & Alison (GRIEVE) RUNCIMAN of Innerwick see also the late Steve GIBB's chart.
