About Mary Tudor

Sex: F

Death: 1781 in Granville Co., NC

Burial: Probably Granville Co., NC


   Gerald R. Tudor Genealogical Research
   There is no certainty that Seat is the maiden name for Mary. The suggestion comes from the will of a Joseph Seat, probated on 15 March 1737/38 in Surry Co., Virginia. Joseph names a daughter, Mary Rose, and leaves her "1 shilling besides that which she has already received". Joseph's wife was named Mabel, last name not know and not known if she was the mother of the children named in the will; Joseph, Marchell, Thomas, Bilusson and James. Source: Surry Co. Virginia Deeds, Will, etc. Book #8, Part 1, pp. 806-807. Normally, a daughter's name, if married would be so called re. Mary Rose, and just simply Mary if not married. By giving her 1 shilling besides what she already has received implys that she was married to a Rose at the time of Joseph's will. One source, found on the Seat Surname Forum of the Internet, suggest that this Mary was Mary Rose Seat who married Edward Bailey and died before December 1736. We don't know when Joseph wrote his will, but it was probate after the alleged Mary Rose Seat Bailey's death and does not mention the fact of her death or of heirs. The Mary in Joseph Seat's will does not have Bailey as a name, only Mary Rose, not Mary Rose Seat. As with other circumstantial evidence, this one is not as strong as facts connecting John ( Tedder) Tudor's children, but does seem logical in respect to events after John (Tedder) Tudor's death.
