If you look for John Willox living in Kincardineshire on the 1851 census on Freecen it brings up two people of that name living in Stonehaven(Fetteresso)

Ok, a possible census entry.

We all know how variable/wrong ages can be recorded. We have been working so far with Mary Bruce born c. 1842-3 from the info we have.

She could have been born a few years ealier maybe?

There is this 1841 census I have just seen:

Alex Bruce 30 agri. lab. b. Perthshire, Scotland
Mary Bruce 2 b. Scotland

Address: Balbrogie, Coupar Angus, Perthshire

Couple of other thoughts

1) Have you got Mary Bruce/walkers death record just to see what her parents have been recorded as

2) could her mums name have been Willock? There is an Ann Willock born Kincardineshire  1819. Could Mary have been illegitimate and her mum marry Alexander Bruce at a later date?

Hi Norma  :)

Not sure if Mary died in Scotland - haven't been able to find a death cert for her on SP with the names we have for her here  :-\ There was mention that a number of the children showed in England later. Last child (from Family Search) who looks to have been born in Scotland is Andrew in 1870 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XYT4-J4L and then we had the 1871 census.

amandar, where was Mary and children in 1881/91 do you know?

Hi

Alexandrina Walker married Fred Wood Daw Green Dewsbury 17/12/1887 says father William Walker Rope Slicer

Mary Bruce Walker married Wellington Scholefield 23/10/1886 Birstall Brides father William Walker Mariner

Andrew Gordon Walker married Married Mary Turner Alton 31/07/1894 in Elesecar Barnsley

There is a marriage for a William Walker to Elizabeth Davidson BMD June 1880  Barnsley( don't know if same one)  I dont know when Mary first wife died.


1881 in Barugh Barnsley with new wife born 1841 and her son John Davidson age 8  down as John Walker born 1873, I am sure on one census  and on the next say John Davidson. Mary Walker age 13 domestic servant, Andrew Walker age 11. there is no Alexandrina on though - don't know where she was.   it says Elizabeth Davidson born Scotland. 

could be a possibility not sure though
