Who was this Mary Ann?
A possible candidates is Mary Ann (previously FROOM) who was married to John WINDEATT in 1830. A couple of months after the date of this report, our Mary Ann lost a son to measles. [More . . .]. She went on to have lots more children and ran an eating house - so it seems unlikely that she was also the lady in the workhouse. However, it is not impossible - she might have been an alcoholic who later reformed when they moved down to Teignmouth and opened the Temperance restaurant.
Who else might it be?
