Ann Laidman, daur of Thomas is N1577, the daur of Thomas Laidman and Ann Bell. Her father Thomas is L1990. Apart from Thomas who died in 1758, these are all family of Mark so I would think it likely that Thomas (the elder) and Mark were brothers as they were 7 years apart in their ages.

Copy extracts taken from the Bowes parish registers for the baptisms and burial of Thomas and Mark Laidman, 1765, 29 May 1821. (2 papers)

Thomas was recorded in the burial register as LOADMAN *but* his date of burial is given as June 21st 1757 whereas the M.I. (see above) gives his date of death as 20 June 1758. I think I am inclined to accept the Parish Register.
