About Mary Swann

Mary Harris was the daughter of Robert Harris, "immigrant to James Cittie," and sister to Martha (Harris) Jennings. (current research indicates that Robert Harris and Mary Jane Crump had only two daughters: Mary and Martha).

Mary Harris, the youngest daughter of Robert Harris of Isle of Wight county, was married to Anthony Spiltimber by September 1665, when her husband filed suit against John Jennings:

"Deed stating that Anthony Spiltimber,[1] of Surry, formerly commenced suit against John Jennings before the Gov'r and Council in Sept. 1665, in right of Mary his wife, dau. of Mr. Robert Harris, formerly of the Isle of Wight, deceased, and sister unto Martha, daughter of the said Robert Harris and late wife to John Jennings, concerning an interest in land which I suppose fell to me by right of marrying the said Mary youngest sister to the said Martha, which the said Jennings in his right to the part of the Land altogether defended; which suit &c. John Spiltember was father of Anthony &c."[1]
