      Note some children were recorded with the surname Whitten, no doubt this was because, the name was spelt as it was spoken. Either way could be correct. The inexing of the Old Parish Records (OPR's)show his wifes name as Mill but her death record and their childrens marriage records shows Milne. Also they have a child with a middle name Milne and also a grandchild with a middle name Milne. So we can be certain that this is correct. I have not examined the actual OPs but I have examined a number of the marriage and death certificates.
