Mary Elizabeth Adcock, only daughter of James Adcock and Mary Hill, in 1861, living with her parents, was described as a Dressmaker. 

By 1871, living with her widowed father, she had become a Schoolmistress.

In 1881, Mary E Adcock (37) was living at 17, Belton Street, Stamford St George, Stamford, Lincolnshire - which may well have been the address she had lived with her parents - by this time she is described as "Invalid Formerly Teacher". Can't help wondering if this was a result of some kind of accident for her to have been left with enough means to live off from such a short career. 

Still in Belton Street in 1891, Mary E Adcock (47) is an Annuitant. 

In 1901, Mary Eliz Adcock (57), "Living on own means", address is Milner's Row, Stamford, although I think this may well have still been the same place from the description, "Part of this terrace remains although the houses nearest Belton Street have been demolished and replaced with a modern garage." 

Mary Elizabeth Adcock died in 1906, aged 63. She never married.
