Story

Mary King was born in Marylebone, London, in 1824, she was the daughter of John King, Esquire, and Hannah King. In 1842 when she was 18yrs, Mary married John Lagier Lamotte, 27yrs, solicitor, at the Parish Church, St.Marylebone: she was a minor, under 21yrs, and consent to the marriage was given by her widowed mother, Hannah King.

They had 6 children, Mary Frances b.1844, John Henry b.1847, Emily Adelaide b.1850, Charles Lagier b.1855, Constance Maud b.1857, and Cecil b.1859. In 1851 John and Mary were living in Sydenham, Kent, and in 1861 they were in Bray, Berkshire.

John was now a successful lawyer and in 1863 he took a 21year lease on an impressive residence in Brighton, 51, Brunswick Square, it would seem he wasn’t as financially secure as it appeared and in 1869 he was declared bankrupt with large debts. As a result, he was obliged to live abroad and took up residence in Cherbourg, France, where he died in 1907. Mary predeceased him by a few weeks, she was buried at Heene Cemetery on 21st March 1907, aged 83yrs, and John was buried with her on 30th May 1907.
