Maria Hanbury, descendant of Benjamin Franklin

I'm searching for any information on Maria Hanbury, b. 1820 in England, the daughter of Capel Sampson Hanbury and his wife Ellen Franklin. Ellen Franklin Hanbury (1798-1875), daughter of William Temple Franklin, was the great-granddaughter of Benjamin Franklin. As a widow, Ellen lived the last twenty years of her life with her daughter and only child, Maria in Nice, France. Maria was still living in Nice in the 1870s at 11 bis, rue St. Francois en Paule, and she died unmarried. I'm hoping to find Maria's death date and any further information about the family. Thank you.
