Research Notes (Conflicts/Spelling/Followup)

FOLLOWUP

Mary may have been born 8 May 1652.

A source suggests she have died 16 Sep 1664, at the age of 12. However, her father Christopher's will may have included 50£ to Mary in 1677. (This is not clear from the information I have, and a copy of the will needs to be obtained.)

Mary Levis married Thomas Wright on 4 May 1680, the same day and location as her brother Samuel married Elizabeth Clator. [religious-registry-quaker-leicester-rg6-1397-66]
