The Dutch connection
My great grandfather Archibald Cook married a Janet Sloan who was Dutch. Her mother who was Dutch born in Middelburg married a Mungo Sloan who was born in Ochiltree. Mungo Sloan's mother was Janet Keirs and his father William Sloan was born in Ochiltree. How come this Dutch connection? Surely that was rare in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Anyone have any explanations or suggestions?
