Hi Alan,

So her maiden name is Prescott or Hartley. I can't find any specific Mary Prescott who married a William Clegg in 1856 can you give some more details perhaps a country of birth or post the url of the profile this concerns.
Her maiden name is Hartley from Prescott,live in Burnley Lancashire,I think she committed suicide
Thanks for the clarification. Now I can possibly do a better search
Is this prescott England or United States or Canada?
England
I had a look at the local paper but found no report of a coronor's inquest. I found only a brief death announcement

27. —Mary Clegg, Metrocalfe St 70 yrs

British Newspaper Archive, Burnley Express - Wednesday 08 May 1907

( noticed lots of adverts for a Hartley Clegg the Motorcycle Man, sells Rovers, Triumphs, Sparkbrooks, Bruns, 6, St James Street)

There is no death registration for a Mary Clegg in the April-June 1907 quarter in England.

Only sight of the death certificate will give cause of death. The detail will not be available on line:

Ahem...

CLEGG, MARY      77
GRO Reference: 1907  J Quarter in ROCHDALE  Volume 08E  Page 26 
CLEGG, MARY      70
GRO Reference: 1907  J Quarter in THE BURNLEY UNION  Volume 08E  Page 158 
CLEGG, MARY      42
GRO Reference: 1907  J Quarter in HASLINGDEN  Volume 08E  Page 84

The middle one looks the winner as she was 70. You could order a copy of her death certificate from www.gro.gov.uk 

It's so unusual for Ron to make an error that I knew something odd was happening. These records do not appear on the FreeBMD website for some strange reason. In fact there are no Cleggs recorded as having died in the whole of 1907!

Remiss of me Matthew not to have realised. I only searched for a Mary in BMD! Just kicked myself!

Thank you.

Ron
