Latto earliest lineage traced so far

As noted in the blog below - Janet Hislop was my great great grandmother.  Her first husband (my great grandmother's father) was David Latto - his lineage goes something like this:

George LATO (1750) married Margaret CURRIE, (chr. 12 August 1753, Markinch) on 18 February 1775, at Markinch, Scotland.   George and Margaret Lato were my Great x 5 grandparents.

George and Margaret Lato had at least three children.  Two were daughters by the same name, indicating that the eldest one died young, and at least by the time of the second daughter's birth:

Margaret LATO (chr. 4 February 1776, Markinch) must have died as a child.
Margaret LATTO (chr. 7 August 1785, Markinch) 
William LATTO (chr. 14 January 1782, Markinch) married Barbara Ross (1796, Kinglassie) on 5 January 1821 in Kinglassie.  William and Barbara were my Great x 4 grandparents.  William and Barbara had six children - three boys and three girls:

George Latto (1 April 1822, Kinglassie)
Isabel Latto (chr. 8 August 1824, Kinglassie)
Margaret Latto (chr. 13 September 1829, Kinglassie)
William Latto (chr. 28 May 1833, Kinglassie) possibly married Margaret Campbell on 22 November 1864 at Kirkcaldy
Barbara Latto (chr. 4 April 1837, Kinglassie) possibly married Robert Wallace on 9 December 1863 at Markinch
Barbara and Robert Wallace had at least four children as listed below - I am still trying to trace more of these branches of the family:
  James Wallace born 31 January 1865 Markinch
  Barbara Wallace born 11 July 1866 Markinch
  Isabella Wallace born 2 January 1868 Markinch
  Robina Wallace born 4 March 1874 Markinch
James Latto (chr. 24 February 1828, Kinglassie) married Mary Brown (chr. on 5 November 1822, at Kimany) in 1845.  These were David Latto's parents, and my Great x 3 grandparents.  They sailed from Scotland to New Zealand on Sebastapol with their four young sons in 1863 - as listed here.
