Hi,

Agree with Sarah Fitzpatrick.

MS = Maiden Surname, which does look very much like Regan.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards

Oops - of course it's a Scottish cert!  My mind was working on English censuses  :-X

M.S = Maiden surname, as David says.

Hi,

To me, the second letter of Sarah's maiden name looks like a closed 'o' rather than an 'e' and I wondered if it was Hogan or Rogan, rather than Regan.

Just a thought.

Hunter [New Monkland, Fife], Gwynne [New Monkland, Stirling, Midlothian]
Logie/Dunlop/Thomson/Young [West Lothian]

I'm not convinced by Regan, either. My bet would be Hogan.
