  • Notes 
    • Mary's father was a barrister in London, so she will have had a comfortable and hopefully educated upbringing. She married John Beatson after his first wife died, and had 3 children.

      Due to her husband changing his religious outlook three times during his career as a preacher, we can assume she had enough patience to live with someone who must have been strong willed, charismatic and quite possibly overly convinced of their own ideas.

      Although her husband left written religious texts, we know nothing more about Mary apart from the bare factual details of her life.

      However, the National Archives do hold papers from the 'Ashmole, Collings and Beatson Family and Estate Records' which show that Mary did come from a family with land, which would have assured her and her husband of a comfortable living, in theory. Details below.
