Mary Ann Harrington, 1861

Name
Mary Ann /Harrington/
Given names
Mary Ann
Surname
Harrington
Note: MARY ANNE – The Census records show her as being born in 1861/2 although she wasn’t baptised until 08 Jun 1870. This was in St Peters church Sible Hedingham. The register has a mark in the margin that looks like 8yrs? which suggests the date of birth is accurate. In 1871, she was staying with her mother's parents in Blois End on the night of the Census, but after that the trail goes cold. I (Jane Jones) haven’t yet found a birth registration for her. However, I can’t find several registrations for other people in Halstead district about that time, so wonder if they were lax or that the registers are missing. There is a birth for a Mary Anne Harrington at Dunmow in 1861, although I don’t know why Christina would have gone there. The other one, in Sudbury in 1859 is more likely because her grandmother was from Belchamp St Pauls, so she could have gone there to give birth. I am going to get Emma’s certificate before I search further for Mary Anne and see if there is a clue. Obviously if Emma was born in1862, and they are not twins, there is a discrepancy. There was a death of Mary Anne Harrington age 28 in 1897 in the Halstead District, but she was not buried in Sible Hedingham.
