Think the ages are a bit out there, as James was born in 1861, married in 1882 at age 21, so he'd be 40-odd in 1901.

No idea why they're so hard to find, I've been looking for years now and barely ever found anything relevant.

On two of her children's marriage certificates, Mary Ann is referred to as Annie (sometimes Scott, sometimes Cameron), so that is a possibility.

Could James' mother's maiden name possibly be McCann?

There are a number of Irish births post the start of official registration in 1864 for children to a Patrick Mclean and Ann Jane McCann. Images for births for three of their children, Catherine 1864, Mary 1866 and Patrick 1868 show here https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/civil-search.jsp

The problem is...the father Patrick on these entries is showing as a labourer not a tailor  :-\
