Narrative and Notes

The only reference to Mary was on her youngest daughter's baptismal record.

It's likely that Mary married William BATES in 1675, or perhaps earlier if the baptismal records of their earlier have been lost - for instance, there is no son named William - or she might have been a second wife. In any case, no compelling marriage record has been found.

Without other evidence it is assumed that William and Mary had five children between 1677 and 1695. Unusually the children arrived every 4-5 years.

A Mary BATES was buried in Kenilworth in October 1727 as a "poor widow". An unusually high proportion of widows in the parish register were deemed "poor", so it may not have meant poor in the financial sense. Her son Job was the parish clerk at this time, so it is a pity that something more respectful wasn't be recorded, although it may not have been Job's role to record burials, and it may not have been Job's mother who had died.
