Per FamilySearch.org / KPQ9-Z2 for Mary Brooke...she was born in London, Eng.
It is not only uncertain that John Brooke and Judith (Winsmore) Brooke are not the parents of Mary (Brooke) Sherwood; there is, as noted below, clear evidence that the could not be the parents of Mary Sherwood, wife of Hugh Sherwood. It is possible that her maiden name was Brooke, but the sourcing on that is not reliably documented and therefore at best "uncertain".
I will be happy to provide a summary of my research. Please advise me on the best way to do so. This is a mistake that has been perpetuated for far too long and I was hoping the integrity of this project would help in finally bringing it to an end.
There is clear evidence that John Brooke and Judith WInsmore could not possibly be the parents of Mary (possibly) Brooke who married Francis Sherwood. I had removed this relationship once before and documented the couple. The John Brooke you have entered (Brooke-73) as father was not married to Judith. See Brooke-1841. And, Judith Winsmore (Winsmore-5) is a duplicate of Judith (Winsmore-1)
It is not even certain that Mary's maiden surname was Brooke. It's possible that this name was the result of a poor reading of John and Judith's wills and/or will abstracts.
