The Research Notes of James Bruce Pringle (brother of Sir Murray Pringle).

Because Alex Pringle was in his nineties and nearly blind when he wrote his book ‘The Records of the Pringles’ in 1933, he made many mistakes, even thought it was a great achievement. So please make use of the new research by James Bruce Pringle, as it corrects many of the mistakes.
