Biography

She married Anthony Mervin Reeve Story-Maskelyne on 22 November 1819.

Margaret Maskelyne was born in Greenwich on 27 June 1785, the only child of the Reverend Nevil Maskelyne, the 5th Astronomer Royal, and Sophia Rose. She lived at the Observatory until her father's death in 1811, developed a keen interest in astronomy, and assisted him with his observations. In 1819 she married Anthony Story (1791-1879), who formally changed the family name to Story-Maskelyne in 1845 when they inherited the Maskelyne lands in Dorset and Wiltshire. Margaret died at the family estate in Wiltshire in 1858.
