Lord, Mary Taunt (nee Colson) (1832-1914)

Transcription of obituary published in the Primitive Methodist Magazine by D.S.

Mrs. Mary Lord departed this life February 16th, 1914, at the ripe ape of eighty-two, Her early life was spent in Countesthorpe, and on removing into Leicester many years ago Mr. and Mrs. Lord united with one of the societies that ultimately formed St. Nicholas Street Church.

Mrs, Lord knew her Saviour. Her rich spiritual experience was recognised, and she was appointed a class leader, which office she efficiently filled many years, and only retired from it when age and failing health made retirement a necessity, An ardent lover of God’s house, she kept herself informed of the progress of the kingdom, and the ministers of God were ever welcome to her quiet little home.

In age and feebleness extreme she was kept from loneliness by the constant and loving attentions of her adopted daughter. The memory of the just is blessed.


Mary was born abt1832 at Countesthorpe, Leicestershire, to parents John, a framework knitter, and Jane. She was baptised on 23 December 1832 at Countesthorpe.

She married Samuel Lord (1827-1903), a framework knitter (1861), and later, an overlooker in hosiery factory (1881), on 21 September 1855 at Countesthorpe, Leicestershire. 

Mary died on 16 February 1914 at Leicester, Leicestershire
