  • Notes 
    • She was baptised 20 April 1872 in Stanford le Hope.
      GRO birth reference - 1872 June Qtr Orsett 4a 175.

      Mary Ann Martha Ellingford worked on a farm in Little Thurrock and became pregnant with Rose Ann who she had in Wheelerís Cottage, the family home on 5 April 1896. No-one ever knew who Rose Annís father was. Mary Ann Martha left the baby with her sister Florence and upped sticks and went to Worcs to do fruit picking. Mrs Laundry & her husband had a fish shop in the Broadway Little Thurrock, had just lost a son and took a shine to Rose Ann who by all accounts was a beautiful baby with jet black hair. Florence was only 18 at this time & still unmarried so she agreed that Mrs Laundry could adopt the baby. I donít know whether this was a legal adoption or whether they just let her have the baby.

      Mary Ann Martha returned to Little Thurrock a year later, pregnant with her second child William David who was born in Wheeler's Cottage on 11 October 1897. It is not certain, but it is believed that a man by the name of William Stokes was the childís father. This time Mary Ann Martha returned to Worcestershire with the baby.

      When her daughter Rose Ann was about 10 years old, Mary Ann Martha returned to Little Thurrock with Bill Stokes and tried to abduct Rose Ann from Arthur Street school which she was attending. The police were called and Mary Ann Martha & Bill returned to Worcs empty handed.
