About Mary Beverley

Seems to be some confusion about the identity of the Mary Beverley who married Major Robert Beverley. This source says Margaret Boyd b. Mar 1636/37 d. 28 June 1678 is the person who married Robert in April 1666. This source says it's Mary Byrd Carter (who married first George Kebble b.1634 d.1666) then Maj Robert Beverley in Apr 1667. The birth and death dates are the same as those for Margaret Boyd (!!)

Can't find any Boyd or Byrd parents that match with either. We do have sources that suggest that Maj Robert Beverley married first the widow of George Kebble, however, and this, that refers to Robert Beverley as being Mary [Carter] Kebble's daughter's father-in-law.

On the other hand, we have this, that says Mary Beverley's first husband was William Jones.

  1. Margaret Keeble - born 1663 Christ Chruch Parish, Virginia - married John Gwyn/Gwynn
  2. Walter Keeble
  3. (Mary Keeble ?)
  4. (George Keeble ?)
  5. (William Keeble ?)

Major Robert Beverley married twice, his first wife being Mary Keeble, the widow of George Keeble, who was a justice in Lancaster and died in July 1665. Mary died June 1678 and when the floor of the lower church of Christ Church Parish, Middlesex County, was removed later, the tomb of Mary Beverley was discovered. It bore the following inscription: '''Here lyeth interred the Bodi of Mrs. Mary Beverley, Wife of Major Robert Beverley Mother of nine sons and three daughters who departed this life the last day of June 1678 aged fortie one years and three Months, having been married to him 17 yeas & 2 months--and was A Careful Mother teaching Virtuous Life Happy and making happy when a wife Religious to Example, May all strive to imitate her Virtues whilst alive.
