His father was a Lowland Scot from the neighborhood of Biggar, in the Upper Ward of Lanarkshire, where the old yeoman's dwelling of Gledstanes "the kite's rock" may still be seen. His mother was of Highland extraction, by name Robertson, from Dingwall, in Ross-shire.

After this we find a change; instead of the simple and natural narrative, full of human feeling, and without a touch of impossibility, every subsequent episode involves the supernatural; Ra creating a wide water, the extraction of the soul of Bata, his miraculous wife, and all the transformations these have nothing in common with the style or ideas of the earlier tale.
