Mary was the illegitimate daughter of Lucy Walter. Her father is uncertain (see below).
Mary married firstly William Sarsfield esq. of Lucan, Co. Dublin.
She married secondly William Fanshaw on 09 Sep 1675 at St Mary Marylebone, Middlesex.
She died in 1693 and was buried at Barking, Essex.
In the will of her husband William Fanshaw, the will made in 1507 and proved in 1508, he requested to be interred in the church of Barking, Essex, by the side of his wife Mary, sister to the late Duke of Monmouth. Three children were noted in his will:
Mary Walter was alleged to be the "natural daughter of Charles II" and Lucy Walter but Charles did not acknowledge her as his daughter.
Alternatively: "In June 1650 Charles left her [Lucy Walter] at The Hague upon embarkation for Scotland. During his absence Lucy had an affair with Theobald, 2nd Viscount Taaffe, with whom she had a daughter, Mary (born 1651).
