Regarding Marion Kerr - I found a listing under "Merrian Kerr" with Ref
044/2 FR211 in 1829 and the entry reads
"Born 16th March baptised 23 March, Merrian lawful daughter of Norman
and Merrian McLeod, Nedd"
note that her mother's maiden name is McLeod, and not McKenzie however
Marion Kerr's death certificate from 1897 the mother's
name is down as McKenzie. The informant was Donald Stewart (son) -
