After rummaging in more of my Mum's papers I've discovered that Penuel's husband was William Duncan Mathieson and Jane Duncan of Blairnhall was his mother, not Penuel's. So Jane is related to me after all. Poor Penuel was 'addicted to drink', I've discovered. Thankyou all for your help. Much appreciated.
