      From the 1861 Census (RG9 Piece 4240 Folio 50 Page 4) Mary, 43, Master Mariner's Wife Coasting Trade from Scotland, was living with her children Mary, 16, Margaret, 13, and John 10, in Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales. All the children were born in Aberdovey.

      From the 1871 Census (RG10 Piece 5602 Folio 28 Page 16) Mary, 50, Mariner's Wife from Greenock, was in Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales. With her were her daughter Mary, 25, Milliner, and son John, 20, Mariner, both born Aberdovey, Merionethshire.

      From the 1881 Census (RG11 Piece 5478 Folio 42 Page 6), Mary, widow, 66, from Greenock, Scotland, was with her daughter Margaret (Williams), 32, Master Mariner's Wife from Aberdovey, Merionethshire, at Dovey Terrace, Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales.
