The maiden name of Anne is recorded as "Man" on the Banns published in both the parish of Forres and the parish of Dyke.

Hello Jonathan, I remember looking at this and deciding it was Main, but I can be persuaded that it's Mann.
Added by Roddie on 11 October 2011.
Thanks for the comment Roddie. I think what is on the grave stone is "Mann" The death certificate for a son in 1880 gives his mother's name as "Ann Mann", so the name seems to have been corrupted over the years.

have just found this web site and loving it. I agree with Jonathan
"Ann"s maiden is Mann.Have done a bit of research on them both and it all leads here hopefully this should b my 5th ggarandparent .

Hi Jonathan my line comes thro Janet Allan (1792/1874) . I have d.o.b and d.o.d for Robert Allan with his parents being James Allan and Christian Thompson marriage 2 July 1767 dyke . I was hoping this gravestone would have a d.o.d for Ann Mann have a few possibilities I’m working on but nothing proving the facts yet . There s a James Mann noted on there marriage cert as her father .
