Can anyone tell me if they can see Isabella Brough anywhere on the 1881 census?

I have her with her parents (my g g great grandparents) Robert Brough and Elizabeth Wyatt on the 1871 census aged 7. There is an Isabella B Hall "boarder" living with them in 1881aged 17 (same age, place of birth as daughter) but is this the Isabella Brough I'm seeking?? seems a bit young to be married, but having said that I have looked up SP and cannot find a marriage for Brough/Hall.

:-S

You need to look at that 'image' for 1881 to see if it has been mistranscribed.

Mmm Looks like this Isabella may have been taken in by the Broughs, as I have her death certificate states her name as Isabella Brough "formally" Hall and lists her mother as Margaret Hall..No wonder we were confused...Still dont know who she is tho?? perhaps Illigitmate..

It a bit strange isn't it. Robert and Elizabeth were together 1861, so doesn't look on the face of it like she is child of Elizabeth Hall who then got together with Robert Brpugh. I am fairly sure it is the same wife in both cases as her birthplace is 'Swaaran, wigton' (obviously mis-tanscribed) and 'Stranraer, wigtonshire' in 1861. However, notedetails of woman living with them:


1861 Scotland Census
Name: Robert Brough
Age: 36
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1825
Relationship: Head
Spouse's name : Elizabeth Brough
Gender: Male
Where born: Wigton, wigtonshire
Registration number: 685/1
Registration district: St George
Civil parish: Edinburgh St Stephen
Town: Edinburgh
County: Midlothian
Address: 37 Mora Place
Occupation: Compositor Printer

I know, Jessie Millright is a bit of a mystery, she is the same person as Jannet, Jenie Jessie Wyatt even have her death Jessie Wyatt "single" she is listed as half sister yet I cant find a Millright birth or marriage.
