Mothers are one in a million

With less than a month to go until Mothers Day arrives here at The Marygreen Manor we thought we’d enlighten you a little with some fun Mothers Day trivia and a few believe it or not facts. Some you’ll no doubt find exceptionally hard to believe but they’re all true, we promise. Now lets first begin with a few fun facts.


  • Believe it or not the woman who actually started Mother’s Day, Anna Jarvis, filed a lawsuit in a last ditch attempt to halt the commercialisation of the day. Anna had originally begun the annual celebration with hopes of a reflective day of prayer.
  • In the Bible, Eve is given the almighty title of Mother of all the living. Now that’s a busy old mum.
  • Surprisingly enough, the vast majority of all the world’s languages begin their word for Mother with the letter M.


Now prepare to be shocked with some of our Mother’s Day trivia…you might want to sit down.


  • The worlds oldest Mother. This record was created by a woman named Rajo Devi Lohan who became pregnant by IVF treatment and eventually gave birth at the age of seventy-five. The child, now nearly seven lives with her in their home within a remote village in India. The seventy-five year old found the birth so traumatic she very nearly died yet fought back for her daughter’s sake.
  • Highest recorded number of children to one Mother. The official highest recorded number of children born to one woman is sixty nine, to a woman in Russia. Between 1725 and 1765 she rather miraculously gave birth to sixteen pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and a whopping four sets of quadruplets. Sixty seven of them survived past infancy, which for the 1700’s was pretty incredible.
  • The shortest Interval between children. Jayne Bleackley happens to be the woman that holds the record for the shortest interval between her two children born via separate pregnancies. Having given birth to Joseph Robert on September 3, 1999 and little Annie Jessica on March 30, 2000, the babies were born a mere two hundred and eight days apart. That’s certainly a lot of work.
  • The longest interval between children. Elizabeth Ann Buttle happens to be the woman who holds the record for the longest length of time between children. Giving birth to a daughter on May 19,1956 and a son on November 20, 1997 meant the children had a huge forty one years and one hundred and eight five days between them. This made Elizabeth sixty years old when she gave birth to her son.


From weird and wonderful facts to down right amazing achievements, it’s safe to say that our Mothers are indeed exceptional people. That’s why here at The Marygreen Manor we think it’s imperative that you take the time on Mother’s Day to show her just how much you appreciate everything she’s ever done for you and there really is no better way to do it than by bringing her here to our stunning Tudor Manor House to enjoy our rather fabulous Mother’s Day Treat.


On Sunday 15th March you could treat your beloved mother to a super special three-course meal here in our exceptional and world class Tudor Restaurant. Our Mother’s Day treat costs a mere £46 per person and includes some of our most exquisitely created dishes such as our roasted sweet potato soup, succulent sea bass and traditional bread and butter pudding. Make this Mother’s Day in Essex the best one yet and treat her to the luxury she so deserves.
