Mary Anna Mourilyan (1845-1924), known as Polly, was the older sister of Eugénie Sladden. Polly married Frederick Dalgarno Robinson in 1870; they lived at Marshgate House, Richmond. Polly was widowed in 1901; she continued to live at Marshgate House until her death in 1924.
Numerous letters written by Polly Robinson to her sister, Eugénie, have been deposited at the Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service; some of these letters have been digitised and transcribed.
We are grateful to Jenny Gosney, great-granddaughter of Mary Anna Robinson, for allowing us to publish these photos.
