If anyone has already got a ciopy of the book by Tony Whitehead, is there any mention of the Hockaday/ Hockiday family? This would be very helpful to me, or any mention of any Crane family.

Regards

Mary Ann Cotton spent a brief time living in Murton Durham. My ancestors were living in the same small village at the time she was...they may even have known her!

Spooky!

Mary Ann Robson (Cotton) lived in Murton for 14 years from 1838 (when she was 6) to 1852 when she married William Mowbray. In the 1841 Census the family lived at 25? Durham Place, Murton New Winning.

Mary Ann Cotton  seems to be hiding out in Seaham these days.

Hi, just came across this thread after researching Mary Ann Cotton online.  Stan how do you find out your information? It's more detailed than what's online.

 I seem to get the same old stuff on all the other sites I've looked on.  Fascinating and unbelievable read though!

I have the book "Mary Ann Cotton Dead, but not Forgotten" by Tony Whitehead.
ISBN 0953961400, which is a documentary history of her life, and a supplement to the book "Her Life and Trial" by Arthur Appleton. Apparently before Arthur Appleton's book the story of Mary Ann Cotton was extremely garbled, and he made some kind of chronological sense of her life.

Yes I have both of those books.  Tony Whitehead's is a good book, I really enjoyed reading it.  The certificates and pictures make it much more interesting.
