  Noted events in her life were:

Ancestor. A site on claims that Mary was the third great granddaughter of Saint/Sir Thomas More. This claim is refuted by a 2008 scholarly paper on the internet by Martin Wood that shows St. Thomas's descendants to several generations.

A couple of other ancestry sites show Mary's portrait done by Gilbert Stuart, a well known portrait artist of the 19th Century. This portrait is appended to this record. However, Stuart was born in 1755 and Mary died 91 years earlier so it's unlikely that this is true.
