Mary Turner was baptised on 6th February 1757 at Heckington in Lincolnshire, daughter of Elizabeth Turner, formerly Gray, and her husband Philip Turner, a farmer. Mary was the first of ten children, although three of her younger siblings (including the two closest in age to her) died as children. There were never more than seven children alive at any one time.

In 1780, aged 23, Mary married a man named John Clarriecots. They have yet to be researched after their marriage.

    Anno 1756
    Mary Daughter of Philip Turner Farmer & Eliz[abeth] his Wife Bap[tize]d February 6

    Although listed under 1756, the baptisms are clearly arranged running from Lady Day (25 March), as had been the custom prior to the calendar change four years earlier. This entry is clearly at the end of the 1756 list, a little before the "Anno 1757" heading which occurs between March 21 and March 27. It is therefore fairly clear that this entry is actually for 6 Feb 1757.
