Sarah McLean - born 15th April 1834 in North Knapdale

* "Sarah an illegitimate daughter of Allan McLean parish of Kilmaly and Catherine McLean in this parish Born 15th April 1834."
* Intriguingly, most entries on this page of the register have baptisms in December 1838 and January 1839 – with several other outliers apart from Sarah. Her placement on this particular page indicates that, at the beginning of 1839, a clerk had formalized the record of a birth almost five years previously.
* This registration might have been at the request of Catharine and the late registration was a deliberate act by her, after some forethought. But what prompted her to eventually get the birth recorded - almost two years after her complaint had been finalized, when Sarah was almost five years old, and after Allan had left the area and had been in Australia for two years.
* The clerk might have been relying on Catharine’s memory of the date, and the assertion that the birth was illegitimate, and that Allan was the father.
* It is recorded as a birth in this register of baptisms, so it appears that Sarah was not baptized when she was born, nor baptized much later.
