Ann Mawer

Female 1679 - abt 1759  (80 years)



  • Name Ann Mawer  [1, 2
    • Spelled Mawes by Curtis, based on earlier pedigrees, altough he notes: 'Some pedigrees spell the name Mawer [not Mawes]. In Surtees' Hist. of Durham, the list of freeholders, in 1684, in Bishopton quotes "the heirs of Thos. Mawer"; while in the corresponding list for Little Stainton ... occur "The heirs of Robert Tatham, gent." .. If Anne Mawes should read Mawer, she was perhaps of near kin to the above Thomas Mawer.'
      But the name Mawes is very rare, whilst Mawer is relatively frequent, esp. in NE England and around Bishopton.
