    About the Sampler from Nicola Parkman:

    "Ann covered every inch of her fabric and, in doing so, showed in the top section that she was more than competent in marking linen. The bottom section of her sampler contains a very chirpy bird, a butterfly, two dogs, and two shrubs heavily laden with flowers.

    Ann Hutton Rathmell was born in Horsforth, Yorkshire on Saturday, August 7, 1841. She was baptised on Sunday, October 17 in Rawdon St Peter, an Anglican church. Her parents were Joseph Rathmell, a farmer, and his wife Mary, née Hutton. Ann was the first of eight children born to the couple. The family farmed Whetstone Farm in Horsforth.

    Life was probably very hard on a farm in Yorkshire in the 1800s. Ann never married or was blessed with children. We hope that she lived a happy life. She died on December 24, 1900."
