Mary Ann Harry was born on 19th November 1818 and baptised the following month at Saltash in Cornwall, daughter of Mary Ann Harry, formerly Tucker, and husband John Harry, a waterman. She appears to have been the fourth of six children, although her parents' previous child had also been a girl called Mary Ann, who had died as a baby. One of Mary's younger brothers, Richard, also died young.

On 6th October 1840, aged 21, Mary married a mariner called William Santo. For the first few years after their marriage they lived in Devonport, where they had three children together. They then moved away from the south west to Portsmouth and (briefly) Greenwich, before settling in Portsmouth. They appear to have had six children in total. In each census from 1861 to 1881 they were living at Croydon Place in Portsmouth.

Mary died in 1887, aged 68. William survived her by two years.
