red mail Mary Ann Beard (Jones) of Olveston - The Church Lane Ghost 1867
Mary Ann Beard (1831-1883) widow of Charles Thomas Beard and daughter of John Jones, potato dealer of Olveston, wrote a poem "The Church Lane Ghost" set in Church Lane, Rudgeway, Olveston. It was printed in Bristol (1867), presumably for distribution to family and friends, and is now very hard to find.
