  1. Helen was baptised in the parish of Botriphnie in 1811 but the date and location of birth are not stated in the parish register. The 1851, 1871 and 1881 censuses all give her place of birth as the neighbouring parish of Glass in Aberdeenshire, which at the time was partly in Aberdeenshire and partly in Banffshire.
