    BIO:The Katewell and Milnton of Katewell branches of the Munro Family Tree are poorly recorded and documented in the existing Munro records in Scotland. Alexander Mackenzie (among other historians) had few records to construct this genealogy other than those in the unpublished "Munro Tree" and the main order of the Katewell estate successions. He names John as Janet and William Munro's "only son" although this is contradicted by the 1768 "Birthbrief" written and signed by Harry Munro of Fowlis and heads of other cadet families and James Fraser, Minister of Alness, which names HUGH also as a son. [See BIRTHBRIEF - ANCESTRY OF CAPT. HON. JOHN MUNRO 1728-1800]. Mackenzie also failed to record a grandson of William and Janet's named HUGH. Although Mackenzie's "MUNRO FAMILY" book is still the primary published source for Munro genealogy, a number of errors have been discovered and proven in this volume. The proponderance of evidence established in the John Munro birthbrief, supported by detailed research of that document in both Scotland and America by Clan Munro Historian R. W.Munro, and all other available Munro sources support the conclusion that this Hugh Munro IS the son of William and Janet of Milnton of Katewell.
