A Question About Maryann
« on: Monday 26 October 20 20:30 GMT (UK) »
The name Maryann or Mary Ann, as give at baptism. I wonder, how common was it for such a girl to grow up to be known as Mary, or Ann, not Maryann? I have a feeling that that happened, but I don't have a feeling for just how usual/unusual it was.

It would not be unusual. She may have also been known as Marian.

Not too sure on how common or not it was but my grandfather had 3 sisters baptised Mary Anne,Mary Catherine and Mary Jane who all lived to adulthood along with a Marian who died as an infant.
First one went by Hannah,second one Kate and third one Jane.
The baptismal/birth cert. names were never used with them on census ,marriage records or death certs.
