Hi there

Sadly I don't think you'll find an OPR birth for Margaret but it surely looks like she was probably born in Ayrshire.

The parents named on her DC only turn up one IGI birth registration to them and that one is a submittal for a Hugh McKerrow.

A DC search for a mother by maiden name and married name leads to what looks like their mother who died in 1857 Auchinleck..

1857 MCKERROW ELISABETH MCGAVIN MURDOCH F 78 AUCHINLECK /AYR 577/00 0037

..which matches nicely with Margaret Hair's place of birth stated on the 1851 census. The DC also gives an informant of J. McKerrow, son. A look for them in 1851 census shows mum was born in Old Cumnock.

Eleza McKerrow
b. abt. 1779
place of birth: Old Cumnock, Ayr
living in Auchinleck, Ayrshire
Address: Dornal


Eleza McKerrow age 72, head
James McKerrow age 41, son

So no birth registration for Margaret....but a mother and two brothers all living in Ayrshire!

Best wishes
