    Notes 
    • Her marriage certificate shows her as Margaret Bruce. However, the 1851 Census shows her living at Cannongate with husband William Howliston and her mother is shown as Isabella BREWIS, aged 64. In addition there is a son, George BREWIS, aged 5, who appears to be illegitimate. She could not write her name at her marriage but a witness, Robert BRUCE, could write his name. Is this evidence that she is Margaret BRUCE? She could however write her name when registering the birth of her son Robert Henry in 1849.

      Isabella Brewis was married according to the 1851 Census and may only have been visiting
