Mary was the illegitimate daughter of Lucy Walter. Her father is uncertain.
Mary married firstly William Sarsfield esq. of Lucan, Co. Dublin.
She married secondly William Fanshaw on 09 Sep 1675 at St Mary Marylebone, London.
She died in 1693 and was buried at Barking, Essex.
Mary Walter was alleged to be the "natural daughter of Charles II" and Lucy Walter.
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)

Mary married firstly William Sarsfield esq. and secondly William Fanshawe. As you can see. Crofts-68 was married to Sarsfield and Walter-2 was married to Fanshawe.
My suggestion is that Crofts-68 is merged into Walter-2. Why so? We know that her mother was Lucy Walter but her father is uncertain.
NB The link with the surname Crofts name comes from her half-brother, James Duke of Monmouth. He took on the name of Crofts from the people he was brought up by. However, Mary has no link with Crofts as far as I am aware.
