About Mary Clifton (unknown)

___________________________________________________

She married, first, on Feb 2,1626/7 at Halifax, Yorkshire, Henry Butterworth.

She married, second, shortly after Jan 28,1640/1, Thomas Clifton.

Children(by first marriage): John Butterworth, Abraham Butterworth, Mary Butterworth Mason, Samuel Butterworth, and Henry Butterworth. NOTE: Older information names a daughter Sarah, born c1623, who married Pardon Tillinghast. However, she was born four years before the marriage of Henry and Mary, so she may not even be of the Butterworth family.

Children(by second marriage): Patience Clifton Beere/Berry Allen and Hope Clifton Holder. Some sources say the Mary Clifton Bowen was a daughter of hers, but Mary was born in 1628 (well before the marriage of Thomas Clifton and Mary), and she may have been a daughter of Thomas Clifton by a prior wife.
