Mary Lynas was aged 1 year according to the 1851 census. Her mother was dead.

In 1867, at 6 pm on December 13, Mary Lynas McCruden applied for parish relief. She lived at 94 Gallowgate Glasgow, front 1 up right door, with her aunt Mrs Lynas. She claimed desertion, and that because of her need to care for her children she was disabled from earning.

Mary was a 19 year old housewife. She was Roman Catholic. Her husband James, a boot and shoemaker, born in Ireland, had deserted her 2 days earlier. She said she knew where he was but as he was taking to drink she wanted assistance until such times as he was able to return to work.

Mary herself was the daughter of Owen Lynas, a weaver, and Essie Loughran, both of whom had died. This was her first application for parish relief. She had 2 small children: Matthew aged 18 months, born at 94 Gallowgate, and John aged 4 months, also born at 94 Gallowgate.
