Her marriage cert. would give you her father's name. It will also give you her age so you can work out her date of birth.

This may be a coincidence but here it is anyway:-

Marriages Mar 1885 (>99%)
McAllum William Dartford 2a 474
Meiklejohn Catherine Grady Dartford 2a 474

must be a member of the family though!

saw that marriage but she would have been c 45 at marriage if born 1840 so a little late maybe to be starting a family ??

Well Aileen you have been busy through the night. I had to stop looking, because of the time, and was going to pick it up this morning but you've pipped me to it.
Well done with what you've found!
