Maria Mary Merrett was born in Stroud, Gloucestershire in about 1845 to James Merrett and Elizabeth Coppin. She had six siblings: William Merrett (c. 1842–?), Elizabeth Sarah Merrett (c. 1843–?), Catherine M. Merrett (c. 1848–?), Lucy Merrett (1852–1926), Richard H. Merrett (c. 1853–?), and Charlotte Merrett (c. 1857–?).

She married Harry Hancox on 28 May 1867 at St Stephen the Martyr, West Derby, Lancashire[1] and her sister Catherine was a witness. They had four sons.

In the 1891 Census, Maria Mary was a widow and living at 30 Edge Lane. Her occupation was given as "Living on her own means" and she had her four sons at home: Harry was 22 (Bankers clerk), Frank was 21 (student of medicine), Charles was 19 (merchants clerk) and Richard was 17 (bankers junior clerk)[2])

In 1901, she was 55, and had three of her four sons still living at home: Harry was 32 (a bankers clerk), Charles was 29 (office manager) and Richard was 29 (a bankers clerk); their address was 30 Edge Lane, Liverpool[3]
