From the biography of Mayflower Capt. Christopher Jones:

2. Jones married his second wife, widow Josian ___ Gray, widow of Richard Gray, age 21 at St. Nicholas Church in Harwich a few months after Sara’s death in 1603. Josian had seafaring relatives and her late husband was a noted mariner with friends among the Captains of the 1588 Armada Fleet and which included ‘treasure hunting’ in the Indies, this have may included attacks on Spanish treasure ships. Josian probably brought a substantial marriage portion and had inherited her late husband’s house in Church Street, Harwich together with other land and property.[3]

It is believed Josian may have remarried in 1626 as in that year a ‘Joan Jones’, widow, married one Thomas Bartelmore at Stepney, London, directly across the Thames from Rotherhithe.[2]
