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.
