There is a JEANIE BORLAND, widow of George Wilson recorded in the poor relief claims for Dalziel parish.
In November 1903 she is aged 32 years and living at Borland's Land, Craigneuk. Her birthplace is given as Kilmarnock.
In the original claim of 1903 she has 4 children - Stewart aged 10 years, Janet aged 6 years, Jeanie aged 5 years and Georgina aged 2 1/2 years.
She subsequently gives birth to an un-named illegitimate child in 1908. The claim continues through to 1920.

In a previous claim of 1901, she is the illegitimate daughter of the deceased Janet Borland.

Am I muddying the waters here?

Your 09.32
Our Jeannie BORLAND m Edward McKNIGHT on 06.07.1917 when she was aged 18, so it looks as if we have 2 instances of the same name

Still looking at your 09.09

Thanks

Monica,
If you put your ear very close to my mouth, you might just be able to hear me mutter through clenched teeth "you were right.....". You'll definitely hear me shout ".......but only 95%". What's this idiot talking about? To recap:-
My friend (Sheila's) mother is Mary CARROLL, and she left her estate "... and to my sister, Nancy...." hence this thread as I searched for Nancy. Having found her, you expressed your doubt, because of her age, that Mary's mother was also Nancy's mother. Now, listen very carefully, you won't hear me say this again; you were right.
Sheila has spoken to a descendent of Nancy in Australia and been informed that Nancy's mother was in fact not Catherine AS YOU HYPOTHESISED (there goes your 5% fall from perfection), but Mary, Sheila's mother! To say we were surprised is a massive understatement.
Obviously, Sheila and Nancy are half-sisters, so what is Sheila's relationship to Nancy's daughter? Is Sheila her Aunt?
Anyway, all joking apart, we're eternally grateful to you and everyone else who's helped in our search; a genuinely collaborative effort. Thank you.
George

George, you have made me laugh on reading this today!

Well done for following up the link we found in Australia too as I thought the answers would help confirm details better.

So happy that everyone is in the right place now with this all and thank you for the update to this thread. We always get left curious as to what goes on to happen  ;)

Take care.
