Have you had a look at the Mary Bruce age 8 living with her granny Hellen Leys in Fetteresso in 1851 seems a bit of a coincidence that one of the other grandchildren is called Ann 'Wilox'.

Jen, that is an interesting possibility isn't it. We are stuck so far on Mary's side  :-\

From your info for 1851, Freecen has in that household a granddaughter from what you found (showing as d/daughter) as Ann Wilcox, the other transcript service have that entry as Ann Wilson. All d/g children born in Fetteresso.

Hellen Leys 67 pauper b. Angus - Arbroath
Hellen Watson 30 daughter unmarried weaver b. Angus - Duninichen
James Mckey 12
Mary Bruce 8
Ann Wilson OR Wilcox   ? 3
Address: Evan Street, Fetteresso Kincardineshire

I can only see one Mary Bruce so far in 1861, working in a farm. Also a John Bruce there, age 11. Think these two show as children of a William and Agnes Bruce in Fourdoun, Kincardineshire in 1851. Birth places from 1851 of Fetteresson and Fordoun match for these two.

Can't see another Mary Bruce so far...

Hi

I have just looked at Mary Bruce marriage age 23 and was a domestic servant marriage to William walker 22/5/1865.  father's name Alexander Bruce and it does look more mothers name was ann Willox than Wilcox . On later census says Mary was Kincardineshire Stonehaven?
