He married 26 June 1831, recorded that day at Maybole, also 27 June at Dailly, Ayrshire, Jane Nicholson Wyllie (also in the records as Jane Nicholson and Jane Anderson), born 4 October 1810, daughter of James Wyllie and Elizabeth Anderson. Jane died on 24th or 25th July 1886, aged 76 at 18 Milton Road, Ayr, Ayrshire. Alexander and Jane had thirteen children, born Maybole, between 1832 and 1856, several of whom died young.
