-------------------- Mentioned as executrix in her husband's will. Mentioned in her father's will as Mary Hewes. Sir Thomas Foote was a cousin to Mary Hewes, he was Sheriff of London in 1645, and Lord Mayor in 1649, and was made a baronet in 1660. Arthur Onslow, speaker of the House of Commons, left a manuscript containing his recollections (see Historical Mss. Commission 14, App. 9, 458) in which he speaks of Sir Thomas Foote as a very eminent person in the City of London, of some note in parliament, and a member of one of their councils of state, and that he gave a great fortune to his daughter who married the writer's grandfather. It is possible that Mary widow of John Hewes married a second time, as undoubtedly she was a comparatively young woman at her husband's death, possibly 40 years of age. Two at least of her daughters came to New England; Phebe, who married Richard Gorde, and Elizabeth, who married Ralph Hemenway. Traces of the other children have been lost. The elder son, Jonathan, was probably educated, like his brother Joshua, to be a merchant, and remained in London. Research has as yet yielded no definite results concerning the ancestry of John Hewes, or of the history of his descendants, except of those who came to New England. (Descendants of John Hewes) Her brothers and cousins were established in London as merchants, and for their times were wealthy, prosperous men.
