Another tree has her born in 1878 and I've found a birth on SP in Rerrick for that year - which is probably the closest to the info you've given.

In 1881, this Mary Brown b. Rerrick is aged 2 and   is living with her grandfather, a William Clint, aged 84 b. Kelton and quite a few of his other grandchildren. These include a Margaret Brown, granddaughter, aged 24.

Worth following up but it's rather late now. I'll try again tomorrow if no one else has found any more.

Gadget, please enjoy the rest of the day. You've done so much and so fast.
This latest path may be the correct one as another branch of our family did a genealogy book almost 40 years ago and listed Mary Jane Brown as being born in 1978. We’ve always dismissed that as it didn’t aligne with the Canadian census. Perhaps she misrepresented her age on the 1911 census.

Another tree has her born in 1878 and I've found a  on SP in Rerrick for that year - which is probably the closest to the info you've given.

In 1881, this Mary Brown b. Rerrick is aged 2 and   is living with her grandfather, a William Clint, aged 84 b. Kelton and quite a few of his other grandchildren. These include a Margaret Brown, granddaughter, aged 24.

No absolute proof so far, Shane, but this one feels right!
