It is well known that Mary Anning is associated with the old tongue-twister, "She sells sea shells on the sea shore."  It was composed in 1908, more than a half century after her death, by Terry Sullivan who was inspired by her life story. The original text was:
She sells seashells on the seashore
The shells she sells are seashells, I'm sure
So if she sells seashells on the seashore
Then I'm sure she sells seashore shells.
