The child was baptised in Newton on 2 Sep John is named as the father, but no mention of him being deceased.
There is a record of a mort cloth, in Newton, for John Adam on 1 Sep Is it possible that John's family came the 5 miles from Newton to Macmerry to collect the body for burial in Newton, and at the same time took the baby there for baptism? Would the mother normally attend the baptism I believe wives did not attend burials?
Defined as during the birth of a child until a period of one month. I would have thought that the mother would have been a vital part of that equation. The churchyard side of 18th Century Scottish funerals seems to have been only to do with the unpleasant business of disposal of the corpse with no ceremony and no real reason for a widow to attend when goodbyes had been said at home. In the 30 years before recorded deaths appear to have been averaging about one per week.

It was seen as a direct attack on workers because members of the bourgeoisie could always buy their own exemption. On August 17, a large crowd gathered at Eccles in Berwickshire armed with sticks and stones.
They made clear that they were intent on stopping the authorities from implementing the Act. The demonstrators then returned to Tranent. Once in the village itself, the troops tried to proceed to the assigned meeting point, but there was a crowd gathering with sticks and a drum.
