Mary Need was baptized on 12 December, 1645 at Arnold, Nottinghamshire, England, the daughter of Nathaniel Need and his wife Anne ______. 
On 9 November 1682 Mary and Edmund Cartlidge (his name is spelt like that in the Quaker records) gave notice to Chesterfield Monthly Meeting, Derbyshire, England of their intention to marry. They married on 28 January 1682/3 at Nottingham Quaker Meeting. Edmund is described as of Riddings, Derbyshire in the Quaker marriage record. On 8 Feb 1683 (8 of 12th 1682), Breach Monthly Meeting wrote a transfer certificate for Edmund and wife to the "ffriends in America."
They had two sons, John and Edmund and one daughter, Mary.
The family immigrated to Pennsylvania, and settled in Darby, Chester County.
Mary and her children were named in the 1701 will of her father.
Edmund Cartlidge left a will dated 21 February 1702/3 and proved in Chester County 12 Jun 1703.
Douglas Richardson gives Mary's marriage date as 28 November 1682. The Quaker marriage record makes it clear it was 28, Quaker 11th month, 1682 which equates to 28 January 1683 in modern reckoning.

Needs Development: This profile and the profile of her father need development against the project's checklist and approval by the Project to badge Mary (and brother Joseph's) trails. ~ Thiessen-117 23:16, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
See Base Camp for more information about identified Magna Carta trails and their status. See the project's glossary for project-specific terms, such as a "badged trail".
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Mary by comparing test results with other carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage (beta) of DNA with Mary:
