Mary Ann was buried in St Oswald’s churchyard 111 years ago yesterday but she does not have a gravestone. Neither does she have any relatives in the Filey Genealogy & Connections database.
In 1911 she was living at 16 Scarborough Road, Filey and a sister was with her on census night.
Mary Ann’s husband, James Fant, had died in 1907 and he too rests in an unmarked grave. I did a little snooping on Find my Past before seeking out the ladies on FamilySearch.
Mary Ann has ten sources on the Shared Tree. The 1851 and 1861 censuses show her in the bosom of the BROWN family, her birthplace given as Holbeck in one and Leeds in the other. (The parish of Holbeck would eventually be incorporated into Leeds Registration District.) I cannot access the 1871 Census on Ancestry but we know she married in 1880/1881. The censuses in 1881, 1891 and 1901 show her with her husband James in Scarborough and Filey. In all three Mary Ann is adamant that she was born in Hull. In 1901 they were living at 8 Scarborough Road.
There isn’t a marriage source for the couple on the Shared Tree. Given Mary’s birthplace mismatch, finding it would have been a good idea. (Her birth three years before the supposed parents married should also have raised an eyebrow, if not a red flag.)
I will say more about the BATEMAN sisters, including Eliza, tomorrow.
