Could be if she was widowed very soon, but in 1917 she is said spinster and marries as Dickson, not Locke .

I do not think it is  your Mary in Cardiff.i posted so that she could also be discounted from the search.

Ok, thanks. Knowing who's not the right person is important.

What was her age at marriage? 26 august 1888 doesn't match with aged 25 in 1911 but the census might be off, especially.

The Dickson/Patterson couple seem to be Alexander Dickson and Elizabeth Patterson (married 1879).
Here they are in 1891 with daughter Mary:

Still there in 1901 but the family have moved to Wales:

Mary not with family in 1911:
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XW6K-PS3

This would mean that the forename of her father is not the right one on the mariage and death certificates, as well as the mother's forename.
Where was she in 1901 ?

Another one to add and try to follow

1901 4816/219/3

Mary Dixon 14 yrs b York, Yorkshire.

She is an inmate in Ashburton Home, St Elizabeth, Gosforth, an industrial school.

Mary may well have fabricated her fatherís name on marriage.

Still think there is a Scottish connection, many Italians went to Scotland.

Jennifer,
Do you mean a Scottish connection for Mary? There could be as we canít identify her yet.

I donít understand what you mean about Italians and Scotland though for Mary. Newcastle and Northumberland have been given for her birth.

Dickson and Patterson are names found in Scotland and her husband sounds Italian , could be a link to Scotland as many Italians went to Scotland.

I was thinking as she married in London, her husband, presumably Italian, would have no Scottish connection.

She is not the Patterson child though, she married in Cardiff. Reply #17.
