One More Jane MUIR - Jane DICK to add to the Ayrshire Collection!

This is a great "brick wall" puzzle that I haven't yet been able to make any headway with at all in spite of repeated efforts.

William McBRIDE (McBRYDE) was bc 1863 in Girvan Parish, Ayrshire, according to his statement on the 1901 census at Galston, Ayrshire.
The record of William's marriage, 27 May, 1884 in Girvan Parish, Ayrshire, to Selena MARTIN, states his parents as Jane "MUIR or DICK", domestic housekeeper, and William McBRYDE "putitive father".
The parents were quite obviously not married to each other.
My further interpretation of this information is that Jane was born Jane MUIR and some unknown time during the years following William's birth c1863, married a man by surname DICK.

I have not been able to pin down the correct Jane DICK nee MUIR, who is William's mother, either by a seemingly likely marriage record or by 1881, 1891 or 1901 census on Scots Origins.
Without knowing the forename of the husband DICK a death certificate for any random Jane DICK nee MUIR proves nothing.
Not having been able to find Jane, it's impossible to know whether or not she may have had further children to her marriage to unknown DICK husband.
I've been roughly estimating a ten year span of Jane's age at William's birth as between ages 16 and 26 years, which would give her an estimated birth of roughly 1837 -1847, place unknown.

I've searched through the MUIR and the DICK data on Ayrshire Roots to no avail.
If any information should appear from other researchers that are researching these surnames and something seems possibly familiar or connecting I'd very much appreciate being contacted.
