The sugar connection may yet result in somehow connecting us to records that mention our Alexander. This was from a database of sugar refiners and bakers over time. Sugar Refiners & Sugarbakers Database http://www.mawer.clara.co.uk/sugarbb.html BOGLE George - Easter Sugar Works Glasgow 1669 Hutcheson BOGLE Robert - Easter Sugar Works Glasgow 1736 Hutcheson From Allison (my Sterling researcher - Don't know how far you investigated the sugar website, but on the Gourock/Port Glasgow street plan there is a Bogle Street marked! So I guess as these two towns were the major ports for Glasgow at this time Mr Bogle was active there too. The Easter Sugar House in Glasgow I had already found in the Bogle index in the Glasgow archives, but it appears to be a passing reference and so far I haven't found any major records for it.
