Brief History


Mary never married that we know of.  She spent decades serving wealthy employers, graduating from freelance laundress (in 1841) to household cook in the decade before her death in 1870.


It was not so common for servants to make a career as a servant.  However, it was ordinary to bounce around to multiple employers, however, which Mary did.
