2.  Family Trees.

John Hope and Agnes Clark had five daughters but only one son - James.    James married Grizell (Grace) Somerville and had seven children in West Calder, West Lothian.  I think that Grace had a profound influence on the fortunes of the family as the name of Grace and Somerville pervade the family trees of her descendants.

Individual family trees for all seven children follow:-
