She died on 11 Jan 1922 at Landulph, Cornwall, England, aged 90. Mary Ann Deacon was the daughter of the publican at the Royal Oak, in the village of Cargreen, situated on the Cornish bank of the River Tamar. Reputedly, she was wooed by George Snell of Park, who decided to take a wife in his mid 30's. He became attached to the publican's 18 year old daughter after making her a acquaintance on his daily rides of inspection around his estate. However, he decided that she should be 'educated' before the marriage, and sent her away for one year's tuition on how the wife of a country farmer should behave. By all accounts the subsequent marriage was very succesful.

This story appears to be corroborated by an entry in the 1851 Census. Mary Ann Deacon is listed as resident at 104 Union Street, East Stonehouse. She was listed as age 19, scholar, and niece of the head of household, who was Ann Deacon. Ann Deacon was aged 59, domestically employed and living with one daughter and 3 sons, as well as her niece.
