Birth: May 21, 1799
Lyme Regis
Dorset, England
Death: Mar. 9, 1847, England

British fossil collector and paleontologist. She gained an international reputation for her recovery of a number of important fossils from the local cliffs and several of her findings are in the Natural History Museum in London. She has been credited with the first discovery of ichthyosaur fossils, though this is not entirely true as she did help to discover the first specimen of Ichthyosaurus to be known by the scientific community.

Daughter of Richard Anning and Mary "Molly" Moore Anning. She was one of ten children born to the Annings; only Mary and her brother Joseph (born 1796) survived to adulthood.
Their father, Richard, a cabinet maker, often took Mary and Joseph on fossil-hunting expeditions to make more money for the family. They offered their discoveries for sale to tourists on a table outside their home. Richard died when Mary was 11.(info by B Ballew)
