Note 1: This may or may not be the correct birth record for Margaret Brander. There are two more records that could fit the timeline. Born 2 August 1786 to John Brander and Elizabeth Taylor and 21 Nov 1778 to Andrew Brander and Margaret Dick both from St Andrews-Lhanbryde.
Note 2: Margaret is 17 years older than her husband. This is unusual. It s quite possible that Margaret Brander is a widow. Nevertheless the fact is correct since we find Margaret living with her daughter Mary Brander Gatherer in the 1851 census in Speymouth where she gives her dob as 1781 and pob St Andrews-Lhanbryde. However, it could very easily be the other Margeret Brander noted in the birth record above.
