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.

If you're related to any of the people written about, I'm guessing you'll recognise them from the surnames. If you are, do please get in touch.
