Webmaster's notes:

Anne Godfrey's family line goes on through George. She has traced back James' parents to John Mutch + Margaret Cruickshank.
Trish MacKenzie found James' death certificate which gave the following information:

James Mutch, Farmer, widower of Ann Black d.6 Mar 1864 Hornfields, Parish of Rayne aged 83. Parents John Mutch, Farmer, deceased and Margaret Cruikshank, deceased. Reg by William Mutch, son.

Further details and son William's details taken from ANESFHS Ancestor Chart 3040.
Daughter Margaret's details taken from ANESFHS Ancestor Chart 7912. The marriage details on this chart are wrong, see Family Line [J6] for the correct Margaret Mutch that married Alexander Auld. Thanks to Irene Stevens for pointing this out.
James and Anne with Elspet, Jane and William are shown as crofting at Collyhill, Rayne in the 1841 census. This also shows a Margaret Smith aged 5 in the household - daughter of Elspet?
Jo Anne Hawthorn is descended from son William. She has written:

I am the great-great-grand daughter of William Mutch born 7-23-1828 married to Eliza Burnett Bruce born 6-22-1844



She has sent me a GEDCOM file of this family.
Mary Lazell has provided additional information on this family. See Family Line [G7] for a copy.
Additional information on the children's families has now been sent to me by Jean Gibson. You can view the full details on this PDF file.
Jean followed this up with more details on the second family of son William. You can see the details here.
Alan Johnston has written to provide details of daughter Jane's family:

Jane Mutch born 11 Oct 1822 in Rayne, married John Peter in Daviot 26 Nov 1854. John was born c. 1823 in Culsalmond. They lived in Rayne until John died in Rayne 28 Jun 1876.

Eldest son John was a teacher and died in Aberdeen.
