    • The compilers of the BRB had no knowledge of this Mary but they noted the gap between Allan & Hugh the elder. "There was possibly an infant who died between Allan and Ewen/Hugh" (BRB p7). The gap is 35 months.

      Now, with the information about Mary, we have a gap of 23 months between Allan & Mary - and just 13 months between Mary & Hugh.

      We need to double check the dates of these three births but maybe there has been some confusion about birth dates Vs baptism dates because the baptism may be arranged many months after the actual birth.

    • It is thought that this Mary might have died early because: (A) There is a younger sister with the same name, born in 1818, (B) Early death is indirectly indicated by the quick baptism so soon after she was born, (C) She is not mentioned on the passenger list when her family migrated 24 years later.
