b.~1840 – d.1910
The only thing we can be sure of with Mary Ann, is that her life came to an end at Long Grove Asylum on 13 March 1910, aged 70. She was buried 5 days later on 18 March 1910, in Horton Cemetery, in an unmarked grave known as #713b.
From the lunacy records, we can tell that before Long Grove, Mary Ann was placed at Cane Hill Asylum for almost 16 years, being admitted on 30 December 1891 before being transferred, on 18 June 1907 ‘Not Improved’, to Long Grove.
The records show, that amazingly, there are at least three Mary Ann Mundays, born around 1840. Some were married, others not. Some were wealthy, some were not. There are many possible records available, but none that we can definitively link to this Mary Ann, and we don’t like to guess. Maybe when we open her file in the physical form, it may reveal a link, a family member for instance may help us identify her.
