About Mary Ann Carr, Twin

Mary Ann Darling (Twin)

MARY ANN, Thomasin’s twin sister, decided to live in Bamburgh when the family moved to Longstone and on 18 November 1832 she married George Dixon Carr. They were both 24 but over the next ten years family tragedies befell them. Five children were born but only the fifth survived infancy. George and Mary Ann themselves were both to die young; George died at the age of 32 in 1840 before the birth of his daughter, Georgiann.

The widowed and pregnant Mary Ann moved back to live in the lighthouse but she died just three years later. Her orphaned daughter, Georgiann, at three years old was the only one of this family to survive - she was to marry her cousin, William Dixon.
