Mary Young (née Bisset)

The 1851 census records show Mary living with her family at Wester Raddery as described on Simon's page.

The 1861 census shows Simon and Mary still living at Cloy. However, next door was a large Bisset family including Henry (12) Isabella (10), Hugh (8), Janet (6), Alex (4) and Lily-Jane (2). With them is a Hector Munro, father-in-law to the head of the family, and Isobella Bisset aged 87, widowed, and mother of the head of the family.

If Mary's birth record is correct, this Isabella could not have been her mother. Perhaps she had been married to Alexander Bisset's brother?
