The nearest record I can find for a Margaret Storrie is the 1861 Census
Address 128, High Street Airdrie Lanarkshire
Margaret Storrie age 80 born Airdrie
James  Brace age 57 boarder
Jane Clelland age 46 boarder

Obwan  did you order the full copy from the Court Records ?

Rosie

Don't think it helps for now, but Rosie's entry above is likely the correct Margaret Storrie. Margaret Storrie was married to a George Cleland. Daughter Jane born in 1810 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XTFR-42K

I think this is her and daughter in 1851:

Margaret Cleland 67 tambourer b. Airdrie
James Brice 47 son in law b. Airdrie
Jane Brice 35 daughter b. Airdrie

Address: 112 High Street, Airdrie

Margaret and daughter also showing as living in High Street Airdrie in 1841:

Margaret Cleland 50 tambourer
Jean Cleland 25 tambourer
Robert Bryce 9

Looking at 1841 again, the family of Andrew Pollock and Elizabeth Pritchard that Doddsie mentioned earlier is worth another consideration I would say. The household is listed 5 entries before Margaret Storry Cleland and daughter Jane, therefore certainly neighbours who would have known each other well you would think.

In Andrew Snr.'s entry, he is showing on FreeCen as an Ironstone Contractor (not Caster). Not unthinkable that he could also have set up a grocery business in the 1840s in Airdrie. 1851 has him as an ironstone miner, 1861 is anyone's guess on the transcript...(showing as a later winer..likely late miner!).

Marian in the household in 1841 looks to have been registered as Mary Ann I think following her birth in 1824 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XYW4-L62  Might help trying this version of the name in searches?

      I was trying an 1851 Census search for Andrew Pollock and noticed something that might or might not interest you.

      Go to SEARCH on Anc...try and click Census & Electoral rolls.     
      Click 1851 UK census on right
      Stroll down and click 1851 Scotland Census
      Type in Andrew Pollock
      Birth: 1829
      Male
      Click Search
      ......Click entry at top
      An Andrew Pollock comes up as a Calico Printer, and he is with a McAllister family.
      On right is a list of suggestions
      Scroll down and find "Web: Scotland Sheriff Court Paternity Decrees
      Click
      Andrew Pollock -- "formerley an Ironstone Carter."     A McAllister child was born.
      Click: Go to Website.
      Open Website
      The McAllister child was born 7 March 1849.

       It is complicated but there is more information amongst those suggestions to the right of the census.
