Mary Ann Robinson

1805 - 1872

Father Thomas Robinson
Mother Emma Ollerenshaw
Husband Samuel Swindell
Children Joseph


Mary Ann was born in Tideswell in 1805 (1), the youngest child of Thomas & Emma. She had an older brother James and an older sister Sarah. Its unclear whether another older sister, Hannah, was still alive at the time of Mary Ann's birth or not, but she was seemingly dead by the time their father died in 1823 (2).

Mary Ann married Samuel Swindell on 21st June 1829 at St John the Baptist's in Tideswell (3), and their eldest son Job was born the following year (4). They had a daughter Hannah in 1833 (5), then a son Joseph in about 1836 (6), and a daughter Mary in 1839 (7).

Her mother died in 1840 (8), and according to the terms of her father's will she should have inherited half her parents' house, and a third of the balance of the estate at this time (9).

Her youngest daughter, Emma, was born in 1842 (10), and finally youngest son James in 1844 (11).

Her husband Samuel died in 1867 (12), leaving everything to her (13), and Mary Ann died five years later on 8th September 1872 (14) leaving everything to her children (15).
