About Mary Neal

disputed ancestry


Torrey states that Captain Walter Neal married either Mary Ayres or Mary Haines[7]. However, other sources show that the Ayres family were not established in the area until the mid-1700s, while the Haines family was firmly established and had a daughter named Mary who would have been born at the right time to be of age to marry Captain Walter Neal by 1661. In addition, Captain Walter's will mentions that his land was adjacent to that of Matthias Haines (Mary's brother). There is no mention of Ayres in any interactions with Walter Neal. Thus, I believe that Walter Neal and Mary Haines were husband and wife.
