Inscription

‘Mary Ann the beloved wife of Frederick Clark
who died [indecipherable] Day 1894’

‘Also Frederick Clark husband of the above
who died Dec 1 1900’

Mary Ann Clark (née Livermore)  (c1836 – 1 January 1894)

Mary Ann was the daughter of William and Susan (née Turner) Livermore and was born in Brinkley – a village five miles south of Cambridge.  She was baptised in the village on 16 October 1836.  William worked as a shepherd and in 1841 the family were living at Mile House in Stapleford.  In 1861 Mary Ann was working as a servant for maltster Jonathan Palmer at 10 The Causeway, Cambridge and she married Frederick Clark later that year.

Frederick was also a maltster and the family lived at 13 Newnham.  They had at least three sons:  Albert Edward (1864-), Frederick William (1865-) and Ernest Joseph (1867-1922). From 1891 onwards the family are registered as living at 1 Newnham, which might just have been a re-numbering of the houses.  Mary died at home aged 57 years old.

Frederick Clark (c.1839- 1 December 1900)

Frederick was born in Cambridge and died at home aged 61 years old.
