Very little is known of the widow Womack from primary sources. She survived her husband William Womack, as is known from records dealing with his estate, which was mentioned in the 1674 minutes of the Virginia Council. Some have interpreted a Mary Womeck named twice in Orphans Court records as being the widow, but this is unclear and it is more likely this was an orphaned daughter. The widow was definitely deceased by 1685.
Some sources claim, based on uncertain foundations, that Mary Allen was born around 1610 in Kent, England. She died between 1678 and 1685, probably in Bermuda Hundred, Henrico County, Virginia Colony, English Colonies.
William Womack married his wife, Mary Allen perhaps, about 1643 in Henrico County, Virginia.
Several of Mary's children were wards of Timothy Allen after the death of her husband, which is the reason her maiden name is often thought to have been Allen. Based on records relating to her children and a lawsuit filed by son Thomas Womack, it is believed that she was not the daughter of Timothy Allen but rather married him after husband William Womack died.
Thomas Womeck lately an orphan under Guardianship of Timothy Allen; upon petition, it is ordered that sd. Allen do on July 1, next in presence of Mr. Richard Cocke deliver to sd. Womeck remainder of gift bestowed on him by his deceased mother, with costs ats Exec. he having yet received no part thereof (but ye gun & suit of cloathes without flying coat) as by sd Allen's confession appears, & Mr. Cocke is hereby requested & appointed to see sd. delivery. June 1, 1685. Min. Bk. Feb. 1681-Apr. 1701, p. 186
We have now evidence that the widow of William Womack, Sr., married second Timothy Allen. Upon the death of his mother, Thomas was left a "gift" of which he has only received part. He has successfully sued her husband, Timothy Allen, for the remainder. His mother, widow of William Womack, Sr., can thus be shown to have died prior to 1 June 1685.
