I'm in the middle of researching the 18th/19th century population of Marylebone (part of archaeological/historical work on Marylebone parish)
Looking for information on Mary Marmion.
Information uncovered:
She died in 1827 aged 52, and was buried in Marylebone parish churchyard. She lived in Upper Park Place, Marylebone.
This is what we have discovered so far:

Mary Marmion died 14th September 1827 aged 52. She lived in Upper Park Place, an addess which no longer exists but is in the parish of Marylebone, in the west end of London. She was buried in St Marylebone churchyard on 21st September (source: 'The Day Book of Burials' in the parish records).

The International Genealogical Index has this:

Alice, daughter of Charles and Mary Marmion born 30th July 1794 at St Marylebone

Charles Henry, son of Charles and Mary Marmion born 26 February 1797 at St Marylebone

We also have a headstone record from a survey of the churchyard done in the 1930s:

"Sacred to the memory of Alice Marmion who departed this (sic) April 9th 1812 Aged 17 years. Also Mary Marmion who departed this life April 8th 1882 Aged 80 years"

Presumably this later Mary is Alice's sister and the first Mary's daughter.

She has already been reburied in the East London Cemetery. She was found on an area of the site outside the archaeological excavation and it looked like what it was - a construction site! she was in a decorated wooden coffin with a lead breast-plate.
