Hi Theresa

It's not all that rare for wrong names to appear on marriage certs (and death certs). It can be explained by the person being  scared at the  ceremony or mishearing, etc.  It could well be that the Leitch was misheard as Lynch.

I'll have a look at the cert and see if there is any other explanation.

Yes - it's pretty clear that it's Mary Leitch MS Lynch.

I think she gave the wrong name but no proof . Her birth cert gives Margaret Savage and Dominic death cert has Margaret Savage as his wife.

Margaret's death cert might have the correct name but that is too recent so you'd need to order it.

On a death cert I purchased  for Christopher (son)  -

Margaret was Margaret Leitch - ms Savage - Christopher Leitch - shoemaker ( journeyman ) -  -  passed away 10 August 1897. Cause of death - phthisis pulmonalis - 3 months - Christopher of 76 Crown Street Glasgow.
Margaret - her mark - mother was present.

I think we've provided enough evidence to say that Margaret's mother was Margaret Savage, unless there was a birth and informal adoption at birth - births and deaths of Dominc's children and Dominic's death cert all state Margaret Savage as his wife.

Ironically, I've found a Mary Lynch marrying and Frederick Leitch in Castle Blayney in 1861

Very unlikely though.

When you were looking at the Dunn family, did you get a list of James and Margaret's children in date order?

I think i've got in a muddle with tracing the Dunn family as  Margaret Dunn age 18 (parents James Dunn, Gas Office Clerk & Margaret Leitch) married  in 1908 to Anthony Cusack.
Anthony Cusack & Margaret Dunn were my cousins grandparents.

i shall have to look at the Dunn family again!
