Hello Balmoral 2003,
Slightly off the thread, has your research shown which of the Dalton or Annan Vivers emigrated to Australia and when?  Sheep would be the connection in common.  I have been given some references to historic newspaper sites there and would like to see if Vivers are mentioned.

CSC, Just checked with my mother in law, the teacher you had was my husband's auntie! Then about twenty years later in the eighties my mother in law also taught cooking there for a while!

That is very interesting csc!! We now know when Mary was born, she would have been the second child of Richard and Elizabeth. Do you have access to Ancestry.co.uk? I just finished my subscription, but when I typed her dates in my Family Tree Maker program, a match was found with an Alexander Jardine, grocer, spirit dealer. Could be interesting to follow up?
