Mary Ann Burman

English Samplers

Mary Ann Burman, age 7

1788

Norfolk

Description:

This oval map sampler with a lovely floral border was a lucky find to complement our Norfolk Girls. The map is divided into hundreds, which are old grouping of parishes for administrative purposes. The map was finely drawn, or perhaps printed onto the fabric and embroidered. County maps are much more scarce than country maps. 

Size (W x H): 23 3/4 x 19 1/2 inches

Stitches: Cross, satin, stem, eyelet, double running, back

Media: Silk on linen

Genealogy:

There are two viable alternatives in the correct time period, neither of which was born in Norfolk County:

Samuel and Susanna (Liman) Burman of St. Mary Whitechapel, Stepney, London, christened their daughter Mary Ann in November 1780.

Thomas and Sarah (Blessley) Burman registered the birth of their daughter Mary Ann in March 1782 in Henley-in-Arden, Warwickshire. She was christened in May 1783.
