Subject: Medieval Lineage of Mary (Maynwaring) Brooke (ca. 1616-1663) of Maryland
Date: Fri, 7 Oct 2005 01:49:57 EDT

Mary Maynwaring, an immigrant to Calvert County, Maryland, was the second
daughter of Roger Maynwaring (1589-1653), Lord Bishop of St. David's, by his
first wife Cecily Draper. She was married at St.Giles-in-the Fields,
Middlesex, on 11 May 1635 [with licence dated 9 May 1635 by the Bishop of London] to
Robert Brooke (1602-1655), M.A., and in 1650 they removed from Battle, Sussex,
to Maryland, and they both died at their home Brooke Place Manor in Calvert

Her father bore as his arms those of the See of St. David's impaled with
Barry of twelve Argent and Gules and over these a mitre. Barry of twelve
Argent and Gules was a recent grant of arms given to Randall Maynwaring (d. 1612),
Knt., of Over Peover (in Bucklow Hundred), Cheshire, during Elizabeth's
reign. The senior line of Maynwaring of Over Peover had ended with three
co-heiresses in 1558, and their respective husbands quartered the ancient arms of
that family, that being Argent, Two bars Gules. All the other Maynwaring cadet
branches in Cheshire and Shropshire used variations of the original arms.
The entailed Over Peover lands went to a younger son of the senior line, the
father of Randall (d. 1612) mentioned above, and Randall's new grant of arms
distinguished his descendants from all other branches of the family. The arms
of Bishop Roger Maynwaring place him solidly as a son of the senior line of
Over Peover in its second incarnation, and also in support of this is a
statement from his tomb, that he was "born of a family illustrious among the
people of Chester." When the Parliamentarians forced this bishop to flee, he
sought refuge in Dublin, where another son of Randall Maynwaring (d. 1612) held a
position of authority, and that was Sir Philip Maynwaring who was knighted
at Dublin Castle in 1634 on becoming secretary to the lord-lieutenant of
Ireland. There are other circumstances supporting the placement of the bishop as
a son of Randall (d. 1612), whose original grant of arms he himself bore
