Mary Ann Kearry c 1920.
This remarkable lady lived to be 91 an finally died in 1927.
She was actually born in Hedon in about 1837, but, we think, was adopted
by the Bell family, of Withernwick we assume,
and so became Mary Ann Bell.
She was married in 1860 to John Kearry, a local man but who orginated in
Norfolk (born Winfarthing, Norfolk in 1837), he also lived to
be a good age for the time, he died in 1908 aged 71.
