Starr and Goodwin, say in Various ancestral lines of James Goodwin etc. that Mary Blakeman, daughter of James Blakeman and his first wife was born 25 Apr 1661; m. 1st George Searles and 2nd Samuel Pitman.
She was called Mary Searles in her father's 1689 will. So she was definitely wife of George Searles. However, George died in 1706. Samuel Pitman was b. 1691/2, so was 30 years younger than Mary. Samuel Pitman married Mary Groome 23 Nov 1716. This is a mistake of identity between half siblings.
Mary Blackman/Blakeman, daughter of James Blackman and _____ Stiles, was born 25 April 1661.
