Mary Rigby was born in 1867 in St Helens. She was the daughter of Richard Rigby and Elizabeth (Bridge) Rigby.

By April 2nd 1871, Richard and Elizabeth were living in Park Road, Parr. Richard was working as a plate glass maker, and they had two children - Mary (aged four) and Peter (three).

By April 3rd 1881, they were still in Park Road. Richard was now working as a carter. Mary at thirteen was still in school, as was twelve-year-old Peter. Two more children had been born - Robert (five) and Richard (one). Henry Bridge, a 31-year-old unmarried coal miner, probably Elizabeth's brother, was lodging with them.

Peter married, and presumably left home, in 1889.

By April 5th 1891, Mary was no longer living with her parents, and what had become of her isn't yet known.
