Mary Provan-Paisley,Scotland to Tasmania

Mary Provan married William Kerr an upholsterer in Paisley Scotland in 1846. Mary was living at 74 High Street Paisley when she married. The 1851 Census lists her with William and their daughter Elizabeth aged 5 at 18 Barclay St, Paisley and that Mary was born Paisley. Another family named McLEAN were also living at this address. Mary, William & their family of Elizabeth, Isabella, William, Ann & Mary emigrated to Tasmania on the "Persian" from Liverpool in 1857. Haven't been able to find Mary's origins. I think she was probably of the non conformist church and that has been very hard to find any info. The Scotland's People site does not have anything that matches with Mary. Is anyone missing a Mary Provan from their tree?
