Does the cert. name her husband(s), Osprey?

The Bryce Crawford connection would certainly help to explain Bryce Nicol's first name. ( I also think the first name Harvey could be explained by this birth in Gargunnock, Stirlingshire, 9 July 1820- David Nicol  with parents Andrew Nicol and Janet Harvie).

Court 389, did your Agnes Kilgour marry John McFarlane in 1860? If so I note that among their children are Jemima and Bryce McFarlane. Coincidence?

Re Bryce Nicol  it would appear that he married a Maria Kilgour. Maria was born in Gloucestershire but her parents James Kilgour and Elizabeth Woodward were born in St Quivox, James being the son of John Kilgour who farmed at Notmyre. Again coincidence?

My fourth great grandmother Agnes Crawford married James Kilgour in 1834. They had 3 children, Janet, Agnes and Jemima(unsure of last one) before 1843. I'm unsure if they divorced or if he passed away, but between then and 1849 she married and gave birth to Bryce with David Nicol.

My 3rd great grand mother Agnes Kilgour married John Macfarlane in 1860 and had a whole bunch of children, including a Bryce and a Jemima. Unfortunately John Macfarlane disappears somewhere between 1871 and 1881.. 

On the case of Bryce Nicol marrying a Kilgour.. do you think it's possible the James and Agnes divorced, and James remarried and had more children... subsequently one that would marry his ex-wives son? I'm going to need to pour a glass of wine for this one..

No! I was not suggesting that at all.

The James Kilgour who was father of Maria who married Bryce Nicol was born in 1832! All I was flagging up was the surname connection which may be worth further investigation.
