Agnes Peat married Alexander Johnston 7 July 1831 Leith South 692/2 230/148

1841
2 Palace Yards, Canongate
Alexander Johnston 30
Agnes Johnston 30
Elisabeth Johnston 8
Ann Johnston 2

I presume that Alexander died (haven't found a death) and Agnes then married James Hope using her maiden name. The marriage has her father as George Peat, a Barber.

On the 1851 Census Ann and Alexander are the children of Agnes and Alexander Johnston and therefore James Hope's stepchildren. It looks as though the family was unable to decide which name to use!
