Bride's name
« on: Saturday 21 December 19 14:49 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone confirm names for me, I hope this is a marriage for John Robertson married to a Mary ?, it seems to read Mary Barclay Johnson but on her death certificate it states her parents are John Peterson & Agnes Anderson. They live in Unst, Shetland Isles

I definitely read it as Mary Barclay Johnson.  It is quite clear, can't really mistake it for anything else.

Could Mary have been a widow when she married John Robertson?

This is her death certificate, all seems right, husband John, registered by son-in-law Scott Abernethy of Balliasta. Must have got something wrong. Parents names definitely look like Peterson not Johnson.
Thanks, will go back to drawing board.

There is a baptism for a Mary Barclay Peterson

Name:   Mary Barclay Peterson

Christening Date:   10 Jan 1796

Christening Place:   UNST,SHETLAND,SCOTLAND

Father's Name:   John Peterson

This would be right going by how old she was when she died.  The baptism record was on Family Search.

I can find a baptism record for a Mary Barclay Peterson 10/01/1796 in Unst, father John Peterson but cannot find birth for Mary Barclay Johnson or a marriage for Mary Barclay Peterson to a Johnson!!

When did Mary marry John Robertson?

Added: Was it 6th January 1822 in the parish of Tulliallen?  Her surname on Scots. People has been registered as Johnston.  No Barclay mentioned though.
