Maria's birth is recorded on 22nd October 1816. She was baptised on 15th November 1816 at the parish church of Marholm, Northamptonshire.
The subject of the sampler, Solomon's Temple is a well establisehd biblical image. The sombre verse tells us much about the attitudes towards death at the time:

'In that sweet earth when nature's debt is paid
My neighbours kind I trust will see me laid
and leaving life I leav its load of woes.
In humble hope of mercy to repose'.
Excellent.
