Born c.1838 in Southwark. The widow of John Burridge, carpenter, they had eight children[1]. Believed to have died as the result of reading a newspaper report following the murder of Annie Chapman. According to The Star:

Mrs. Mary Burridge, a dealer in floor-cloth, at 132, Blackfriars-road, was standing at her door on Saturday, reading the Star account of the Whitechapel murder, and was so much affected that she retired to the kitchen, where she fell down in a fit. She regained consciousness for a short time on Monday, but afterwards relapsed and died yesterday.[2]
