In 1871 the census for Hamilton recorded Mary living at 3 James Street with her family. She was aged 4 years and had been born in Hamilton.

Mary was recorded in the 1881 census for Hamilton, living with her mother and seven other family members at 20 Church Street. She was recorded as aged 14 years and was born in Hamilton. She was a 'scholar'.
