By my research, Betsy's parents were actually William "NORQUAY" and Margaret "HALCRO". You will also note that the age of Betsy as notated in her death register shows her as younger than she should be according to this 1821 Census and to her birth record in the OPR. I believe Betsy, after marrying the younger John Linklater  [he is shown in South Parish Household #3], perhaps portrayed her age in later censuses and in her CDR as younger than her true age.)
