      1860: Inmate of the Workhouse of the Parish of Lower Slaughter (Maugersbury, Stow) where she gave birth to her first son Joseph Valentine Keen.

      Joseph KEEN Grandson 10mo Stow

      1862: Gave birth to second son, Harry Valentine in Stourbridge district.

      In 1864 Joseph attended Lower Slaughter school, and his parent/guardian was recorded as Thomas Castle - it would seem Mary Ann was sent away from home between 1861 & 1862.

      4 Dec 1865: Marriage solemnized by John W Grice, Incumbent, after Banns at Trinity Church in the Parish of Amblcote in the County of Stafford. Henry Kiteley 42 Bachelor Nailer of Amblecote, son of John Kiteley (Nailer) and Mary Ann Keen [X] 27 Spinster of Amblecote, daughter of Valentine Keen Butcher. Witnesses Edwin Wheelwright [X] and Sarah Edwards [X].

      [27 Aug 2006: Telephone call from Valerie Keen (wife of Rob), contact through Brian Keen. It seems that Mary Ann had another child, previously unknown, Henry (Harry) Valentine Keen, and was "sent away" to Stourbridge (Worcs). She married a Mr Kiteley, and Harry grew up believing he was a Kiteley. The story is that Harry was the son of the Lord of the Manor (Upper Slaughter). As a result of the phone call found Mary in the 1871, 81, 91 & 1901 censuses, and her marriage to Henry Kiteley. Further found second marriage and record of her death in 1909.]
