NOTES: See "Doubts About the Finley Line." My brother Josh points out there is no substantial evidence disputing the Finley family's own recognition of James McGrew as the husband of Mary Finley (i.e., it is not the conventional situation of the less established line claiming a dubious but convenient kinship), so this site will resolve the issue that way unless and until more solid evidence calls that into question.
Once again I have wife's dates that simply match the husband's, and this is almost certainly in error, given the ages of the children. All of the children's baptisms are recorded at St. Andrews Church, and James was at one time Dean of Guild of St. Andrew, so this appears to be an unusually "stable" generation of this family, geographically. James had inherited land in Cupar Angus, and was granted a Royal Charter, by the King in Edinburgh April 27, 1574, to land in Newburn Parish of St. Andrew, where he spent the rest of his life.
