When researching the census records, I originally thought that Mary Ann Taylor (nee King) had moved back to her native Kent after the death of her husband John Taylor but while going over the family and doing some more checking, I realized that the Mary Ann Taylor I thought was mine had been in Kent all along.

My next hypothesis was that either she had married or died between the death of John in 1885 and the 1991 census. I found a marriage to Richard Richardson in 1889 and then found them both in the 1991 census living in the same house as John and Mary Ann were living in in 1881. I was unable to find them in 1901 so I checked again for a death and found a record for Mary Ann Richardson, dying in Barrow in March of 1898.

I’ve ordered both the marriage certificate and the death certificate to confirm.
