She was the daughter of John Gilmour and Margaret Murdoch.

Elizabeth Gilmour married William Gardner on 4 Nov 1792 at Barony, Lanarkshire, Lanarkshire,

Wm Gardner, Smith and Eliz. Gilmour both residing in this parish.

This is the only fit for Elizabeth Gardner, regarding approx age (remember 1841 ages were rounded down) and place of residence.
I also suspect that Jean and Agnes are perhaps Granddaughters, but at this stage have not been able to locate correct marriages or deaths for either of them.4
