Yes, ErikaH, you are absolutely correct. The article states she is Mrs Mary (Polly) Bullivant, wife of Mr G Bullivant and widow of Mr Robert Jaggard of Mildenhall. It also states she was 67 years old (born c.1869). She is the Mary King who married Robert Jaggard in 1893.
There's a Robert Jaggard aged 32 death in Mildenhall in 1899, and there are four Jaggard/King births between 1894 & 1899 in Mildenhall.
There is a Mary Jaggard, Widow, Grocer & Shopkeeper/Baker in Beck Row in the 1901 & 1911 censuses. It was this Mary who married George in 1920 and that would explain the selling of her furniture in 1921, because she was moving to Yorkshire. It would also explain the slightly unusual (to me anyway) wording of the auction notice: "Mrs Mary Bullivant (late Jaggard)..."

OK, I hold my hand up! I got it wrong this time, but life is a learning curve - and the person who never made a mistake never made anything.

Thank you one and all for your replies and for steering me in the right direction, very much appreciated.

Everyone makes mistakes with FH - it's impossible not to, given the strange transcriptions we often have to contend with, and multiple other factors.

Glad you're now clear in your own mind about the people in question.

Enjoy your research...............
