Mary Cockell




Mary was the fifth child of William Raymond and Ann Plank. She was born in Alton Barnes, Wiltshire, in 1844 and baptised on the 13th October that year.  Her father was a farm labourer/ shepherd; he died at the age of 42 in 1848 when Mary was only 4 years old.  In the 1861 census Mary is shown as a day labourer as was her mother, not a particularly secure form of occupation, so life must have been very hard for the family.

Mary died on 6th May 1925 at 53 Greenham Rd aged 80. She was buried in Newtown Road Cemetery on 11th May, and the cost of her funeral was
