Biographical notes

The birth of Mary Ann Southwell is recorded in the indexes for Jan-March 1853 in the Shoreditch registration district. This district tallies with that of the birth of her elder sister Rosina Cardell in 1846. The Census returns give birth years of 1852 (1861 Census), 1854 (1881 Census), 1854 (1891 Census), 1856 (1901 Census).

According to Margery Pettigrew, Mary Ann Barry eventually went to live with her niece Alice Southwell Pettigrew (nee Cardell), in St Fagans, who looked after her up to the 1930's. Eventually she became infirm and was admitted to a Nursing Home at Penhill, Llandaff, Cardiff. This is confirmed in her Will which she signed and had witnessed on the 7th June 1928 at Park View, 18 Penhill Road Cardiff. However, her death certificate records her final residence as 1a Ninian Road, Cardiff. She died aged 79 on the 7 February 1932.
