Margaret Carter was called Mary.Robert Sr. put a inscription on her headstone in the name of Mary as a nick name.She descended from the Boyds, a noble family, her family well chronicled and has many royals. I hope this is right, it has been yrs. since I worked on this family.She was Robert, Sr's 2nd wife. The 1st wife lived in England.Catherine Armistead Hone was the 3rd wife.I have traced Robert's descendants back to Old King Coel, yr. of 149 AC.Europe Royalty, even William the Conq. It was through Susanna Hollis, his mother and moves over to others in the pedigree.
Catherine Armistead,widow of Theophilus Hone(1st)marriage came from a Col. and a wealthy land owner, with Catherine's bro.John Armistead going in with Robt. on a few land purchases.
There were questions abt. John Beverley being her son, I believe he is.Catherine died in 1692, John was born in 1679 that left him a 13 yr.old orphan. He was not an orphan until then. Catherine had remarried, a Christopher Robinson and had a child or children by him, he also had children by his widow before he married Catherine.
Margaret had at least two children by her first husband. 4 by Robert, 5 by Catherine, Catherine had 2 by John, he had children by his widow also.Christopher and Catherine died close in yrs. leaving many orphaned.
This family never ceases to be interesting.I think it was William Fairfax that stormed the Nunnery and captured his bride in Knight's clothing with acompliances on horses, stole the bride and took her to the first church to marry. She was a heir to a wealthy family, entrusting the nun to keep her safe, they lived happily ever forever.
This tale,has been wished by a lot of girl wishing a knight in shiny armor would take them off in the blue yonder.
