According to the Scottish records, she is the only Pauline Frances McCann, born 1965 in Bothwell, Lanarkshire.
I have yet to find any connection between the various different McCann participants in this affair. However I would say that given that McCanns tend to be of Irish, often Catholic origin, it is an obviously incredibly common name. I shall however keep searching!
Uppatoffee, is there a chance you can check the parentage of the Pauline McCann you found? Are they called Edward & Margaret? Your help, as always would be much appreciated.
I have to agree with Praia here (i'm not too proud ) 42 yrs does appear to be a bit old for a Nanny. Although looking at her passport photo, (I know they can be cruel) she looks every year of it.

There are a number of Scottish marriages that would fit the approximate timescale, although none in the same registration district.
5 1964 MCCANN EDWARD KINNELL MARGARET LOCHGELLY/FIFE 405/02 0060
7 1956 MCCANN EDWARD MCLEISH MARGARET BRIDGETON GLASGOW CITY/GLASGOW 644/02 0138
14 1964 MCCANN EDWARD V DE P DUFFY MARGARET PATRIC DALZIEL/LANARK 639/00 0112
I think the second is probably too early. Dalziel is very close to Bellshill/Bothwell, so I would guess that this is the one. However this is only a guess!

Here is a snip from the article..........................
'Syringe Found In Madeleine's Apartment'
The allegations also clash with evidence provided by British ex-pat Pamela Fenn, who lives in the apartment above the one from which Madeleine disappeared.
Mrs Fenn, 81, told the police that two nights before the incident she heard a little girl loudly crying, "Daddy, daddy" in the apartment.
She said the crying had lasted for some time, but stopped when the McCanns returned to the apartment after dinner.
This would suggest the children were not being regularly sedated and were, in fact, wide awake after being put to bed.
Was this the reason the crying incident was so publicised?
Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized.
In the first, it is ridiculed, in the second it is opposed, in the third it is regarded as self-evident.
