About Mary Riggs (Munn)

Was Mary Munn Edward Riggs' first wife? His only wife? Was her name really Mary Munn Browne?

Mary Munn December 16, 1639-1688 (DOD probably closer to the DOB of her last child)

Parents: Daniel Munn 1615-1666 and Hannah Oldfield 1605-

Children:

  1. Anna 1662
  2. James 1664
  3. Mary 1666
  4. Edward 1668
  5. John 1669
  6. Joseph 1675
  7. Martha 1677
  8. Elizabeth 1678

Apparently also Samuel and Charity as children (need to verify).

--------------------

There was a second Mary Munn profile which appears to be identical, except for the parents. This part of the About is likely extraneous, but that should be verified. Hatte Blejer merged the two June 1, 2014.

Mary Browne December 16, 1639-1688

This profile was merged with another suggesting Mary died in 1668. Perhaps it was Mary Munn, first wife of Edward Riggs, who actually died in 1668?

Detached from Parents: John Browne 1620-November 6, 1690 and Mary Burwell September 25, 1623-c.1689

Spouse: Edward Riggs, III 1636-March 15, 1714

Children:

  1. John 1679
  2. Samuel 1681
  3. Charity 1685

Some genealogists think Mary Browne was Edward Riggs' 2nd wife. Some think he had only one wife. Some think that one wife's name was Mary Munn Browne.

This profile may therefore be dropped from the tree, depending on results of further research.
