Sorbie, 1720.
"March 28. James Mccornock in Kirkinner and Jonet Broadfoot daughter to
Alexr. Broadfoot Elder in high Culls declared their purpose of Marriage and
being orderly proclaimed they were married April 21."
I wonder if the 'Elder' referred to the elder of two generations of
Alexander BROADFOOT, or if he was an Elder of the church.

Kirkinner, 1720.
(I have included the record of ThomasMcCORNOCK here for reason which will
be obvious. It happened to be the next record on the same page as for
"March 24. James McCornock 2d. Lawful Son to Alexr. McCornock in Crews &
Janet Broadfoot daur. to Alexr. Broadfoot in High Culls intimate their
design of Marriage and after orderly proclamation was married at [a space
left here] at Sorbie."
1721 "April 9. James McCornack in Barness and Janet Broadfot had a Lawll
Daugr. born the 3d. of Apr. and baptised this 9 of Apr. Called Agnes."
1737. "James McCornock in Caponch & Janet Broadfot had a Daughter born on
Monday the 21st of Febr. Baptised on friday the 25 of Febr. Called Mary."

Family of Martin, James Sr and Broadfoot, Janet

Married Husband Martin, James Sr ( * about 1720 + ... )

pure speculation based on grandson William McRobert who wrote that his grandmother married James Martin. Since mother, grandmother and siblings came together to America, I think it more likely that the grandmother was his mother's mother. He also wrote that they died in Albany, NY and there is a head of household "Janet Martin" in Albany, NY 1790. ( 2 free white females ) [ Both of his grandmothers were probably named Janet ]
Last record of Janet Martin is in 1802 Tax Assessment of Albany, NY
