Family Search profile's lead me to Mary Margaret Clifton parents as, Father: Thomas Richard Clifton I, mother: Lady Anne Halsfall (LBBB-9DT) originating from Halsfall Burscough Lancashire England. Is there a possible second marriage to be added?

Removed wife of father as mother of Mary. Marriage date of father to wife was long after proposed birth of Mary. First changed to non biological, but profile continued to incorrectly list siblings as "half." Also removed place of birth as Rehoboth, Ma, wasn't formed at that time. These discrepancies were noticed by others and brought to my attention by private message and comments here.

I am going to remove Mary (Clifton) Bowen as a daughter of Mary Longbothom. She may well be a daughter of Thomas Clifton, but it would be by a first wife (and Mary Longbothom would be her step-mother.

And Mary (Clifton) Bowen could not have been born in Rehoboth, Massachusetts, because that town did not exist until well after 1628. It seems more likely that she was born in Rehoboth, Nottinghamshire, England.

Mary is 34 degrees from Albert Einstein, 20 degrees from Steven Harris and 15 degrees from Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
