In August and November 1868 when Isabella Sandlins and Jane Sandilands married, their marriage certificates recorded, firstly in Isabella's, no name for her mother, and in Jane's, that her father was a widower.

Jane's daughter Isabella Mclaren died in 1921. Jane Hay, Isabella's married daughter, was the informant of her death. The information recorded about Isabella's father was accurate and straightforward. However, about Isabella's mother the record reads 'Isabella Sandilands MS Baker deceased'. 4 6 8
