Biography

The New England Historical and Genealogical Register, 1917, volume LXXI, page 109, item 3.v. reads:

  • MARY (possibly dau. of Robert). A Mary Simor, commonly supposed to be a sister of the emigrant Richard Seamer, although no proof of any relationship has been found,
  • m. (1) at Hartford, Conn., 29 Sep. 1644, THOMAS GRIDLEY, who d. there in 1655;
  • m. (2) Dea. JOHN LANGDON of Farmington, Conn., who d. in 1689.

Children by first husband:

  • 1. Samuel, b. 25 Nov. 1647.
  • 2. Thomas, b. in 1650.

Children by second husband:

  • 3. Samuel.
  • 4. Joseph.
  • 5. Elizabeth.

Although Mary's name is spelled "Simor", I used SEYMOUR in order for the computer to accept her name within the family. In the records, there are several different spelling of this family's last name.

This parentage should be marked Uncertain as NEHGR clearly states "possibly" dau of Robert. Have seen no documentation of a relationship to Richard Seymour or Robert Seymour.

Seymour-414 and Seymour-1629 appear to represent the same person because: same spouse, Seymour-414 should be the LNAB.

Seymour-414 and Seymour-1711 appear to represent the same person because: essentially same data, her spouse's surname has alternate spelling

These secondary sources suggest Richard Seymour-128 is Mary's brother, and Robert Seymour her father:

"Hi, Sandy, Here are two citations for Mary and Richard Seymour. They are apparently brother and sister. Children of Robert (1573-1637) and Elizabeth (Waller)(1578-1630) and grandchildren of John Seymour (1535-1605)and Dysory (Porter)(1550?-1605) (Seymour, 1 NE H&G Reg v72 p. 209) <http://www.usgennet.org/usa/topic/newengland/savage/bk4/sension-shapleigh.htm> "

OK. Removed Richard Seymour-128 as father.

Will have to wait to see more research to confirm her parents.

Mary Simor cannot be the daughter of Richard and Mercy (Ruscoe) Seymour as they married in 1631 and Mary Simor is alleged born in 1622. Richard and Mercy had a daughter, Mary, who died in her first year of life and was buried 3 Apr 1635 in Sawbridgeworth, England. Her birth and burial are documented in Parish records.

Seymour-414 and Seymour-1145 appear to represent the same person because: The Bio in -1145 explains the marriages and then these profiles appear aligned.

Confirming her father needs research.

The Bio here sources her father as Robert, not Richard as the profile now has.
