This looks like a possible entry for Margaret Cook in the 1861 census prior to her marriage to Henry McCully in June 1861:

Margaret Cook, 18, lodger, cottonmill worker b. Old Monkland

She shows at the household of a Mary Wilson at 5 Shuttle Row in Blantyre along with other fellow lodgers working in a cottonmill.

Thank you Rosie and Monica.
I will ordered the Court record now.   I wasn't sure there would be much more in it but may of course mention Margaret Storrie's relationship.   Age 80 in 1861 sounds like a good age for a grandmother.   
I will also purchase the birth record for Andrew Pollock.   
Margaret Cook married Henry McCully 21 Jun 1861.   I have the census for 1861 when she is lodging with Margaret Wilson.   
As for William's occupation - would a coal heaver work underground? 
Regards

Olwyn, did Margaret Cook's death in 1916 give any further details on her mother? Sometimes later certs include additional surnames if mother was widowed and went on to remarry.

Monica and Rosie.   Just to let you know I purchased a copy of the court case.  It told me little more than the summary.  The only additional information was the child was to be handed back.
Thank you very much for your help.  Something will turn up one day.

Marion Pollock and William Cook were not married were they? Have you considered looking at the OPR entry that Rosie found for a christening entry for an Andrew Cook in 1845 to these parents? The wording of natural v. lawful in normally how the status of a child's birth is indicated in the registers. Not unusual for a child to go by the surname of their reputed father.

If Marion Pollock married between 1845-51, the children Margaret and Andrew (assuming no death for Andrew) could show under another surname in the early censuses?

That's a pity no other information was on the copy of the court case ...I did have a look for Andrew without putting a surname in but did not have much luck  >:(
