Mary Shaw

Dates: 
died 17 January 1863

Mary Shaw had been the nurse at Dundas Castle for fifty years. She died when she was aged 83 at the castle,

Although the stone tablet in her memory records her as Mrs Mary Shaw, her death record shows her as single, with her parents unknown.

(There is a record in the Catholic Registers Births and Baptisms for a Mary Shaw, parents Ann Hanton and Farquar Shaw, in the Parish of St Mary's Cathedral in Edinburgh, born on 23 August 1782, baptized on 29 August which would match her age - but of course may not be her)
