TEWSLEY, MARY ANN

Mary Ann Tewsley (c.1841-1900)

Mary Ann Coltherd married Henry Tewsley on July 31st, 1869. Mary Ann's sister Elizabeth had been Henry's first wife who died after childbirth, while Mary Ann had come to Dunedin to care for his large young family. They had four children, Gertrude, Ursula, Harold and Cyril. The marriage, doubtless a necessity in his circumstances, was considered irregular and unacceptable by a section of Dunedin society and Henry describes some women at church “drawing their skirts aside” as Mary Ann passed by.

Mary Ann Tewsley died on 18th October 1900 and is buried with her husband and other family members here in the Northern Cemetery.
