Laurence C Mountjoy


From on Monday, 4 July 2016
Ref. JOSEPH LISHMAN md MARY ANN HEARD
MARY ANN HEARD d/o Thomas Head & Mary Ann (Hockridge) was not the first wife of Lawrence Cleverdon Mountjoy. That Mary Ann Heard was the daughter of John Heard, blacksmith. & mother Mary, bp 10/6/1827 Morwenstow. I don't know if she is related to Thomas Heard's family - he has a brother John born C. 1804.
The other Mary Ann Heard who married Lawrence Clevedon Mountjoy died in South Australia, apparently either going to or from her brother-in-laws wedding and was buried on the side of the road in an unmarked grave. How very sad.
Regards, Sue
