Narrative and Notes

Mary KEEN married George ARLEIDGE, a carpenter of Kenilworth, in April 1702 three months before they baptized their daughter Elizabeth. Mary was George's second wife, his first wife, Mary, having died in 1699 during childbirth.

George and Mary had three children: Elizabeth, Ann and Samuel.

George died in 1709 and Mary died in 1727.

In her will she left her daughter-in-law Mary NEWAY and her three children some money and a single pewter plate with Mary's mother's initial on it - an apparently thoughtful gesture. Her daughter Elizabeth received £10 (referencing an earlier gift of Elizabeth's aunt Ann KEEN of £5 making a total of £15), and her daughter Ann got £20, the best suit of clothes, her bed, bolster, sheets and bed curtains. Mary's son Samuel received her house, the cider press, the coffee, a pot, some pewter and kitchen furnishings. Elizabeth and Ann got the remainder and were to live with Samuel until they were married - but no longer!

Her inventory was prepared by Job BATES, Ben ARLEIDGE and John BODINGTON.

No clear baptismal record can be found for Mary (or her sister Ann KEEN).

Other information:

There is a Faithfull KING, who baptized both an Ann (1671) and a Mary (1681) at St Nicholas, Kenilworth, who fits except for his name!
