Maria FURY

Postby SDV » Sun Sep 22, 2019 3:49 pm

Maria was born Maria MARDELL in c1800. She married Thomas FURY on 04 May 1832 at All Saints, Edmonton.

In 1841, Maria (40) and Thomas (40) were living at Eaton Place, Edmonton [HO107 652 3 21 37].

Thomas died in 1845, aged 43 [Q2 1845 Edmonton 3 99].

In 1851, Maria (46) - a washer woman - was living as a lodger in Eaton Place with other family members [HO107 1703 85 46]. In 1861, now aged 57, she was again living as a lodger in Eaton Place with family members [RG9 796 56 9].

After 1861, she disappears from the record. I can't find her in 1871 or an appropriate death.

Any ideas?

In 1861 her name looks like HOY, not Fury, and there is a death in Edmonton in 1869 of a Maria HOY aged 67.

The London Deaths and Burials image on Ancestry has her transcribed as Maria Hay. Image indicates her Abode was Eaton Place.

I think you are correct, that the Maria who died in 1869 was indeed Maria FURY, née MARDELL.

The change of name from Fury is interesting, as the Maria HOY/FURY living at Eaton Place in 1861 must have been Maria FURY, née MARDELL. The Louisa SOLE was her youngest sister, who had married John Sole back in 1838. Maria FURY incidentally was a witness at that marriage, as was an elder brother William MARDELL. Edwin MARDELL was her nephew, the son of brother Henry MARDELL.

So if she is correctly named as HOY in 1861 rather than FURY, had she married sometime between 1851 and 1861? If she did I can find no record of the marriage.

Or do we just conclude that it is a consistent transcription error, given that Thomas FURY had died back in 1845.

Personally I don't think any conclusions can be drawn at all, and I would be inclined to obtain the death certificate to see what that has to say about her, and who the informant was.

Yes - I agree and have already sent for the certificate. Still very interesting, though as it stands 1861 still the last known record.
