Aberdeen Journal, 9/4/1851: to be sold by public group in Lemon Tree Tavern Aberdeen, 17 April at upset price of £500 - schooner Marys, as presently lying in harbour of Aberdeen. Vessel was built in Aberdeen 1836, is hermaphrodite rigged, and burthen 133 tons.

Dundee Courier, 17/8/1866: Aberdeen - on early Friday morning, as the vanguard steamer was leaving the harbour, she ran against a schooner, the Marys, which was coming in to port. Both vessels lost their bowsprits and jib booms. But no further damage was done and vanguard proceeded on her voyage southward. It is said accident was caused by pilot on board the Marys causing the steersman to starboard instead of port the helm.
