Growing up at Griff 1819-

Mary Ann saw them build coal mines and cottages amongst the hedgerows. She heard the rattling of weavers' looms and encountered colliers as they walked to the coal pits. This all happened in the very fields where she played with her brother Isaac.

Her young mind soaked up every scene. Nobody could have foreseen that these memories would be the makings of a great career.
