Hi Anne,
On my grandfathers marriage record it has his parents listed as William and Leah Renwick
When I looked on the 1881 Census it has other sibblings:
Ann, Phillis, John H., William, Christopher and Leah, also listed were granddaughters Sarah B.and Leah Crowe
Their was no Mary but one of the sibblings could have had a daughter Mary. The oldest daughter Ann was born in 1847.
I have just recently found all this info so I haven't much more to add yet.
Keep in touch and I will certainly keep watching for your Mary

According to the 1881 Census my Renwicks came from Plenmeller, Northumberland ( near Haltwhistle )
The 1881 Census had another Renwick family in Alnwick, which originally I had thought this was my grandfathers family
until I received his marriage certificate listing his parents as William and Leah. The family from Canongate St, Alnwick only lists
the mother: Elizabeth, sons: William, Henry, Thomas, George, Richard, John and Robert. Your Mary may have come from this
family since it is not that far from Amble.

Here is info on family members from a line of my descendants:

James Renwick born Dec. 16 Hawick, Roxborough, Scotland and his wife, Janet Hart, daughter of George Hart, she was possibly born May24, 1767 in Christholm. They married June 20, in Kelso Scotland and settled in Berwick Upon Tweed, Northumberland.
Children born in Berwick are:

Robert Renwick 18 April 1784
Janet Renwick Oct 30 1785
Elizabeth Renwick Oct 5 1787 (my branch, married James Young)
James Renwick July 6 1794
Margaret Renwick May 1 1796
Helen Renwick 1801
Mary Renwick Jan 7 1805
Isabel Renwick
George Hart Renwick

Janet married Thomas Renton Dec 5 1811

James Renwick Sr. was the writing master at Corporation Academy established in 1797. He may have also been a minister. Baptisms occurred in Golden Square non-conformist Church, Northumberland.

Does anyone recognise any of these names? It is all I know of the Renwick branch.

I'm going to check into the information you posted with my father, James S. Renwick today. I have written several entries if you'd like to read them. My father was born in Ontario, Canada. We may be related but I'll find out sure today. His family were from Scotland as well so there may be a link here.
