Is Mary's maiden name HUNTER?

or is Janet's mother's name Mary?

Andrew SCOBIE & Janet HUNTER
Marriage 16 Jun 1871 Eddleston, Peebles

or both ???

The shipping record lists Andrew's (b. 1844) father as Andrew and does not list Janet's father. It then lists only one mother as Mary HUNTER living in Peebles as of 1882.

There is a marriage in the index for an Andrew Scobbie to Mary Templeton at Canongate Edinburgh in 1849 which looks likely for his second marriage.

Thanks Barbara.

The Mary Hunter in the 1882 shipping record must be Janet's mother but then living at Peebles seems not to fit.

Janet's death reg in Australia lists parents as William & Mary.
