MotherMary (?) d. 1722
     Mary Stephens was born circa 1690 at Sussex, England. She was the daughter of Joseph Stevens and Mary (?)
Mary's baptism has not been found. Her parents were identified via correspondence which refered to will of Joseph STEVENS, buried 6.2.1722 at Seaford, Sussex, England, administered at Lewes, Sussex.
Mary Stephens married Abraham Taylor on 3 May 1716 at East Blatchington, Sussex, England, Mary is "of Seaford" and Abraham is "of Glind."1
The marriage of Abraham and Mary was found in the East Blatchington parish register: "Abraham Taylor of Glynde and Mary Stephens of Seaford were married May 1(?) 1716". The Sussex Marriage Index has the marriage date as 3 May 1716.
Mary Stephens died in 1736 at Glynde, Sussex, England.
Mary Stephens was buried on 15 February 1736 at Glynde, Sussex, England, "wife of Abraham."2
An Elias Taylor and wife Susanna Gates were the only other Taylor family in Glynde at this time (although there is a single entry for a baptism for a Susannah, daughter of John Taylor on 5.4.1723). There were no Taylors earlier than 1723 appearing in the register (checked back to 1661).
The parents of Mary Stephens are possibly Joseph Stevens (buried 6.2.1722 at Seaford) and Mary (buried 12.1.1722 at Seaford) although her baptism has not been found (see details on Joseph & Mary Stephens).
