Headstone - Mary Jane, Harriet Lucy, Ann & Emma Taylor
Broken off and partially delaminated upper part of the headstone of the Taylor family: the mother and siblings of Elizabeth Brown Hartliffe (ID 655), and originally next to the Hartliffe headstone in the South Nave Yard. Ann Brown (1780-1828) had married Daniel Taylor, a joiner, at Sculcoates in 1806. She is buried with her infant daughters Mary Jane (1816), Harriet Lucy (1818-19), Emma (1822-46) and six infants, probably including a previous Emma (1821).
Inscription supplied from John Barton's 1860 record.
Daniel Taylor was Mayor's officer and silver mace-bearer to the old Corporation until 1836. He had married again (to Elizabeth Gibson) in 1835. In 1841, he lived in George's Yard. He died on 20 September 1849 at Great Thornton Street.
