Mary Brown

  • Marriage (1): Alexander Laird on 31 Jan 1789 in Larbert, Stirling, Scotland

  • Buried: Larbert Churchyard Cemetery, Larbert, Stirling, Scotland

bullet  General Notes:

She is assumed to be Mary Brown, daughter of John Brown and Mary Baad because she is buried next to her brother John Brown, husband of Helen Simpson. She is also the only Mary Brown born in Larbert between 1760-1770, when Alexander and his family were living there. The 1841 census records her birth year as about 1771.

At the time of the 1841 census she is living at Carronshore in Larbert. She is aged 70 and born in the county. Alexander is not there. Living with her is her daughter Euphemia, 35, born in the county and Mary Laird, aged 10, possibly a grand-daughter, born in the county. Also living with them is John Welsh and Agricultural Labourer, aged 20, and born in the county. Mary's son William and his family are on the same census page, a few doors away.

I am unable to find a record for her death and as there is no Statutory record I assume it was before 1855.

Alexander and Mary are buried in the larbert Churchyard cemetery. The Monumental Inscription reads: "1793; Alex Laird & Mary Brown; (on top) no. 34"; On the east side of the same stone, son and daughter-in-law: "1827; Alex Laird; Janet Calder." In both cases the years are a mystery as Alexander Snr and Mary both died well after 1793, and son Alexander died in 1873.

Mary's brother John and his wife Helen Simpson are apparently buried in the adjacent plot.


Mary married Alexander Laird, son of Robert Laird and Barbara Brown, on 31 Jan 1789 in Larbert, Stirling, Scotland. (Alexander Laird was born in 1763 in Muiravonside, Stirling, Scotland, christened on 1 Jan 1764 in Muiravonside, Stirling, Scotland, died before Apr 1841 in Larbert, Stirling, Scotland and was buried in Larbert Churchyard Cemetery, Larbert, Stirling, Scotland.)
