Many believed that Henry Kimball's wife was Mary WYATT, but research outlined in NEHGR vol. 143 (1989):213-220 explains how Mary's mother, Mary Unknown, was first married to a Riddlesdale. Riddlesdale died leaving his wife and three daughters. His widow then married John Wyatt and it is this family unit that travelled to and settled in New England. Mary's daughters' baptisms were found in British church records confirming that they were all Riddlesdale children. Mary (Unknown) (Riddlesdale) and John Wyatt had no children of their own.
