52 ancestors – Mary Hyslop/Stevenson

Swanland, Urr Mary Hyslop’s birthplace

I know little about Mary Hyslop as she only lived until she was 19 years old when she died giving birth to my Great Grandmother Mary Hyslop Stevenson. Mary was the daughter of Andrew Hyslop and Flora Swan. We find her in the Scottish census in Urr Kirkcudbrightshire in 1851 just 8 days old, she must have been her parents’ eldest child. By 1861 she has been joined by siblings James, Flora and Henrietta and is living in Tinwald Dumfriesshire. She married William Gibson Stevenson (Red Rob) in 1868 and died on 10 July 1870 at Kirkbean Kirkcudbrightshire.
