In old age Mary Jeffery retired to Bath. The life she led here was far from quiet. She loved gambling, and probably won and lost large amounts of money. She owned a striking carriage pulled by four black horses, which went around the city faster than any other vehicle. She was reputedly highly eccentric and a great conversationalist. Any visitors to Bath with a reputation for wit and intellect were invited to parties at her house.
