Finally got to the bottom of the problems I was having with my gt grandmother Margaret Cant. She was illegitimate born 1866 in Edinkillie to Mary Cant. Mary was the daughter of Alexander Cant and Margaret Gray. My gt grandmother had stated on her marriage that she was the daughter of Alexander Cant he was in fact her grandfather hence my confusion. Mary went on to have five other illegitimate children Alexander Gordon cant b 1860. Charles Kerr Cant 1870 Mary Ann Newlands Cant 1874 Jessie Ann 1875(married James Mackenzie) and James b1879. There is also a Jane b 1885 but where she fits in Iam not sure.Any help at all please.
