If there was a Mary Loame or Mary Canney who died in 1703, she was not the wife of Thomas. Thomas was married to second wife Jane by 1652, when she appears in court for beating him. In 1655, Jane was charged with beating Thomas's daughter Mary and her husband.[1] The identity of his first wife is avoided in GDMNH, NEHGR, Torrey and other sources.[2][3] So what then is the origin of the name Mary Loame as the wife of Thomas Canney besides (TM) family data collections? The name is a conflation with Thomas Canney's daughter Mary who married 1st Jeremiah Tibbetts and 2nd to Nathaniel Loome or Loomis according to NEHGR 98:62 and died in 1706 as Mary Loame when Mary's son Jeremiah was administrator to his father's estate (note GDMNH under Tibbetts says she married 2d to John Loome). Once again (TM) families data collections are the source of spurious pedigrees all over the Internet. The name of Thomas Canney's first wife is UNKNOWN.
