Another Mary CLAIBORNE was b.abt. 1686, dau. of William CLAIBORNE 2nd and Elizabeth WILKES.This Mary is mentioned in her brother's 1705 will along with her dau. Elizabeth CLAIBORNE, who appears to be illegitimate.However, this same Mary CLAIBORNE is also said to have m. Henry FOX Jr., later the sheriff of King William.


The 1705 will of the 3rd William Claiborne includes reference to "sister Mary Claiborne's daughter Elizabeth Claiborne." His sister's daughter would not have the same last name unless his sister had married a cousin (Claiborne), or more likely, Mary was his sister-in-law and had married a brother, then deceased.
