Notes

I believe (from Notes of GGF; no OPR proof of this as yet) that Alexander is a son of James Robertson and that Alexander's son George Robertson began:
George Robertson and Sons
Marine Insurance Brokers
Monteal

This confirms that James Robertson had seven children (seven shares). I have birth details for only two: John (1794) and From William Robertson's will there are more children than I have records for:
This confirms that James Robertson had seven children (seven shares). I have birth details for only two: John (1794) and Catherine (1795). James Robertson married Janet Fleming in 1792, so it is likely that the other five children were born after 1795. Did, Isabella, William and Jamina predecease William and Catherine?

GGF Alexander Sweet refers to Alexander Robertson being a son of James. So, if this is correct and I have not been able to prove it, I have the seven children of James (but without being able to confirm them on birth records or newspaper references)

John born 1794
Catherine born 1795, married George Sweet and mentioned as an executor
Jean married George Smith and mentioned as an executor
William mentioned in will
Isabella mentioned in will
Jamina mentioned in will
Alexander, who acording to GGF Alexander Sweet's note went to Montreal and his son George Robertson set up Geo Robertson and Son Insurance Broker, Montreal.
