Mary Ann Ellerton

     Mary Ann Ellerton was born about 1815 in Catterick, Yorkshire, England.1 She was the daughter of Benjamin Ellerton and Ann Wilson. She married George Craggs in 1839 in Richmond, Yorkshire, England.2 Mary married Thomas Greathead, son of Edward Greathead and Thomasine Ridsdale, on 15 August 1859 in Church of Hipswell, Catterick, Yorkshire, England, the marriage was witnessed by Ambrose Bonner, Mary Gill and Wilson Ellerton. Mary was a widow and signed her name with a X. Her profession was listed as a Grocer and Thomas a labourer.3 In the census of 7 April 1861 in Bridge Street, Richmond, Yorkshire, England, she was listed as the wife of Thomas Greathead.4 In the census of 2 April 1871 in 27 Zetland Street, Holy Trinity, Durham, England, she was listed as the wife of Thomas Greathead.5 In the census of 3 April 1881 in The Green, Richmond, Yorkshire, England, she was listed as the wife of Thomas Greathead.6 Her husband Thomas died on 17 March 1891 in Harforth Road, Gilling, Richmond, Yorkshire, England, aged 54.7 Mary was listed as the head of the family on the census of 5 April 1891 in The Green, Richmond, Yorkshire, England.8
She died in 1898 in Richmond, Yorkshire, England, Mary Ann was older than her husband Thomas and I guess her true age did not come out until he had died. The 1891 census and on her death GRO index give what I assume is her correct age.9
