BMDB data

     Ann Collins was estimated to have been born say 1795 probably in ?Chirnside, BEW, SCT.1 She and male Davidson were assumed not to be married as no father's name was shown on son John's dth cert, and no marriage is noted in the OPR index, neither fact being conclusive however.1
     Ann Collins was assumed to have died bef. 1841 prob. in ?Chirnside, BEW, SCT, as she was not obvious (as Collins or Davidson) in the 1841 census.1,2,3

Census/Where lived/Occupations

     Ann Collins was not found in the census of 1881 BEW, SCT, as Ann Collins or Davidson of the right age to have a son John c 1817, several Ann someone elses though, if she later (re)married. It is more likely however that by then she had already died.2
