Hi Forfarian, sorry for the delay but I am so confused by this.
I have that record; that's the source of the reference to Hamilton's Land at the start of my thread. Sorry you paid for it too; I'd be very happy to return the gesture.

So are you saying that Margaret's Hamilton's Mother is Elizabeth Rennie (married to William Brown (b 3 March 1843 in Carnbroe) but that in Margaret's birth record Elizabeth's surname was incorrectly recorded as Rae? Or are you saying her mother was Rae? If the former, I am now confused by Rutherglen when they are from Whifflet/Carnbroe area

Yes, exactly that.

Your first post in this thread said they were from Hamilton Farm.

I have yet to find her in the 1871 census, but she should be in the parish of Old Monkland, because that's where Whifflet is.
The 1881 census says Margaret was born in Carnbroe like her husband.
The 1891 census says she was born in Cambuslang.
I see that she died in 1900 which explains why I can't find her in the 1901 census.

So at least one of those birthplaces has to be wrong because Carnbroe is in the parish of Bothwell, not in the parish of Cambuslang.
