There's a 2 year old granddaughter in the 1851 census a Janet Brash? Am wondering if she was possibly Mary's daughter?

In the transcription posted earlier by Normamac (Reply #1, yesterday) Janet Brash is listed as aged 9, not aged 2. The SP index also says she was 9. Where did you find her aged 2?

I downloaded the census yesterday from Scotlands people & can now see I misread the hand writing.
So I guess there must be another daughter to Mary Bishop  from a previous marriage ?

Apologies Forfarian I think I shouldn't be attempting research at 2am with a foggy head :'( I totally missed your pure genius at work in discovering the mystery of Janet Brash & Marys first marriage .
Am most grateful to you,you truly are a whizz
Cheers

Thank you. But remember it is still only a theory - you need to get Janet Brash's marriage certificate to prove it. I could be completely wrong!

It's been a long night of searching but I think I finally found Janet. Well I hope so!
Mary Bishops marriage to Lawrince Lowe in Livingston shows he was from Dysart Fife.
I believe Margaret to be the only child from this marriage born in Livingstone. I now believe she bore
An illegitimate child (Janet) to a William Brash.
Strangely I can't find Margaret since the 1851 census. A Janet Brash is recorded arriving in Australia from Scotland in 1860 aged 19,retained as a general servant in melbourne.She married Giovanni Derung from Switzerland & on marriage record has Janet's /Jessie's parents as Margaret Lowe/Louie & William Brash. They moved to NZ where she died in 1864.
Will not rule this theory out until I discover what happened to her mother Margaret Lowe.
Still hunting
Cheers
