    Children... iii. Mary, pb. 28 Nov 1647 [NEHGR 57:83]; living at the date of her father's will, presumably unmarried, as she is bequeathed more than her married sisters. (The Torrey entry for the younger Thomas Lapham of Scituate suggests that his wife might have been this Mary Brooks, but none of the sources listed by Torrey includes any evidence relating to this suggestion.)
