In a document dated Dec 1766 she is shown as Mary Runcieman, aged 2, with the accompanying minute showing: "The managers have agreed to take upon said Fund Mary Runcieman said daughter of William Runcieman at four pence per week and orders Baillie Jamieson to pay for the forty nine preceeding weeks at that rate"
