Person Armour, Maria Lord ( - 1893)
- Church Worker
Mrs Maria Lord Armour was the Honorary Treasurer of Scots' Church in 1883. Together with Selina Sutherland, Armour was a key figure in the early years of the Scots' Church Neglected Children's Aid Society. The two women lived together for a number of years in a cottage in Little Collins Street at the rear of the Assembly Hall, known as 'The Villa'. From 1881 to 1890, before Kildonan's first home in North Melbourne opened, the Villa housed 'neglected' children in the care of the Society.
