A single book marked the centenary of her execution. I have worked on police investigations and with many serial killers. Yet even to me, the life and terrible work of Mary Ann Cotton were largely a mystery. And so throughout the spring and summer last year, I spent time in the North East researching a new book on this woman who travelled from one pit village to another leaving only gravestones behind her and who, in doing so, gained real, if loathsome, historical importance.
The property, centre left, where Mary Ann cotton was living when she was arrested in The property as it is today, painted blue, has changed very little from what it looked like in But these frustratingly formal scraps of biographical detail were hardly enough to explain what had caused Mary Ann to behave as she did, or to explain why she had all but disappeared.
There was, however, another valuable resource: scores of local newspapers and fragments of documents and artefacts in local archives and museums. It would have been a hard upbringing.
Mawbray: Secret of the Rift
Soon after her arrival, they moved to East Rainton, and then to the pit village of Murton. This constant shifting from place to place was normal for the time and for the region. Colliery contracts lasted no more than one year, and when their time was up, the miners and engineers went looking for more lucrative work. The mines drew in thousands of strangers from other parts of Britain, all eager to sell their labour, so adding to the sense of rootlessness.
Numerous children — no one knows how many — were dispatched with the same callousness. Her choice of poison was arsenic, favoured by murderers down the centuries for largely pragmatic reasons. First, it dissolves in a hot liquid, a cup of tea, for example, so is easy to administer. Second, it was readily available. There was a third reason, too: as Mary Ann well knew, the symptoms of arsenic poisoning were vomiting, diarrhoea and dehydration.
According to death and burial certificates, all her victims had died of gastric ailments. It seems she also played the role of the grieving wife and mother to perfection, making it all the more difficult to be precise about the number of people she may have killed.
An Epistle to the READER.
She bore William Mowbray, her first husband, at least four children, three of whom died young. Throughout her year career of murder, wherever Nattrass went, she followed. He, too, would eventually become a victim. The insurance money also allowed her to embark on a career in nursing at Sunderland Infirmary — a deadly choice of occupation. He died little more than a year later in October leaving Mary Ann a second insurance payout. Mary Ann Cotton was hanged in at Durham Jail after she was accused of killing 21 people.
She took the job in November only for him to see his baby die a few weeks later. Robinson turned to Mary Ann for comfort and yet again she became pregnant. But then her own mother fell sick. Mary Ann went to help — only for her mother to die nine days after Mary Ann returned home. Four months later, Robinson married Mary Ann, becoming her third husband. Their child, Mary Isabella, was born that November but died in March Robinson himself had a lucky escape.
