Have you found any of the family in 1851 or 1861, Wendy?

I have only really looked for and found her daughter Margaret. I have her, Margaret that is, in the 1851 - 1901 Census. But as she married pre 1855, there are no references to parents. In 1851 Margaret is a house servant in the same household as her future husband. I did try a few combinations with her husbands name but no luck.

And have you viewed the image of Donald and Janet's marriage record? If so, does it give any extra information?

I didn't view it until now as all the pre 1855 marriages that I have looked at to date have offered no additional information (and at 5 credits a shot becomes expensive), traced the marriage via IGI and then spent the 1 credit to verify on ScotlandsPeople. Have now just viewed it and there may be something but I cannot make it out - see below:

Yes, there is indeed!

May 30th Donald Scott farmer in Easter Ballachraggin & Janet Robertson D[aughte]r to John Robertson Hightown of Ballinloan - no objections.

Not sure about those place names as Google doesn't recognise them - I'll see if I can work out what they are supposed to be. But anyway, now we know the name of Janet's father!

Thanks Kate, would never have viewed it based on past experience if you had not posed the question.

Okay, the first farm name is more commonly Easter Ballachraggan:

The other one is Ballinloan but I'm not sure about the Hightown bit yet:

Thanks Kate, but paid to downlaod and think I got short changed, have sent off a query with regards the 11 pages vs 2 I got to see. It appears to have nothing to do with his testament only a mention of:
