Wife of Barnabas or Samuel Wines?

Several published genealogies have identified Mary's husband as Barnabas Wines. While her grand-father referred to her in his will as "Mary Windes," leaving her a cow and some sheets, there is no evidence for her husband's first name.

Stramara makes a convincing argument that Mary Mapes could not be the wife of Barnabas Wines, but is in fact the wife of his brother Samuel.[1]

The following citation is frequently cited, but cites no sources: "Mary Mapes, b. ca. 1638; d. at Southold, L.I., June 13, 1727; m. Barnabas Wines (Winds) Jr., b. at Watertown, Mass., ca. 1620-1623; d. at Southold, L.I., 1707"[2]


Husband: Barnabas Wines
Wife: Mary Mapes
Date: Abt 1665
Place: Southold, Suffolk Co., NY
Child: Sarah Wines
Child: Benjamin Wines
Child: Samuel Wines
Child: Bethia Wines
Child: Barnabas Wines
Child: Penelope Wines

Research Notes

from other profile: Daughter of Thomas Mapes and Sarah Purrier. Mary Mapes b. abt. 1662 at Southold, Suffolk, NY She married Samuel or Barnabus Wines in 1670 at Southold, Suffolk, NY d, ?

"The Frederick Family Tree" indicates her husband was Samuel Wines, whereas "The Mapes family in America" indicates her husband was Barnabus Wines.
A discussion on the subject can be found here [3]
"Stramara, Daniel F. "Mary (Mapes) Wines, Daughter of Thomas Mapes of Southold, Long Island, New York", in The New England Historical and Genealogical Register. (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society), 159:127-130.
Investigates whether Mary married Samuel or Barnabas Wines, each case reported by several sources. Both Barnabas and Samuel had wives named Mary. The official records only contain a portion of the will of Thomas Mapes, but a transcription from 1935 names "my daughter Mary, the wife of Samuel [illegible]". The will of William Purrier, dated 13 Dec 1671, mentions "my Grandchilde Mary Windes" and daughter Sarah Mapes. The mother Sarah (Purrier) Mapes was born 1630 (age 5 on passenger list) and could not have had a child Mary born in 1638 to match Barnabas' wife (who d. 13 Jun 1727 aged 89)." [4]
If her husband was Barnabus Wines, then this profile can be merged with Mary (Mapes) Wines for which the birth date should be changed from 1638 to 1662. If it was Samuel Wines, Then [Mapes-168|Mary (Mapes) Wines]] is not the daughter of

Mary could not be the daughter of Thomas Mapes because Thomas was only 10 yo when Mary was born. Mary's father was John Mapes (b. 1613) who was also in Southold.

Mapes-449 and Mapes-168 appear to represent the same person because: GEDCOMs! I don't think they check for duplicates. Anyhow, this "new" profile went up without checking whether WikiTree already had one, so it's time to merge the new duplicates posted with this recent GEDCOM upload into the already existing ones.
