This woman is the mother to eight daughters and the grandmother to 90 grandchildren: there are 6 generations alive in the family

Starting a family is one of the greatest wishes that a person can realize if they wants to be surrounded by children, grandchildren and many, many relatives. However, it's one thing to create a family for yourself, and quite another to live within a very extended family with practically record numbers. To think that in Scotland there is a woman of almost 86 years, named Mary Marshall, who has become great-great-grandmother; she has eight daughters and about 90 between grandchildren and great-grandchildren!

How is all this possible? Very simple actually; Mary was born in 1935, four years before the outbreak of the Second World War, and in her life she gave birth to eight daughters; most of them gave birth to their firstborns at the age of around 18, giving birth to one of the largest families in Scotland.

To give an example: Mary's eldest daughter, 68-year-old Rose Thorburn, has four children, including Chyrel Borthwick who is currently 50, and is the mother of three; Chyrel gave birth to Carrie Dow in 1986, who in turn has four children.

With the birth of little Nyla a few weeks ago (she was born on 25 May 2021 and is the daughter of Toni-Leigh, Mary's youngest) Mrs Marshall has become the first great-great-great-grandmother in the whole of Scotland, mum of eight daughters and grandmother to nearly 90 grandchildren: "I'm a lucky woman to be honest with you. It's great to have such a big family, there's always someone looking out for you. I'm incredibly happy!"

The beauty is that this record-breaking family all live about 10-15 minutes from each other near the city of Edinburgh, so having very large and noisy family reunions is now a daily matter!

Now that Mary Marshall has around 90 decendents including grandchildren and great-grandchildren, she can feel truly proud of the legacy she has managed to create with her husband: giving birth to eight daughters who have given her to is no small feat.

A granny who has entered, at least for the moment, by right into the record book; we're sure that keeping up with such a large family is not easy; how is this granny going to remember birthday and Christmas gifts for all her grandchildren?
