[2451] William and Mary's marriage had been prohibited by James I, Arabella's cousin, as they were cousins. When James learned of their June 22, 1610 marriage, both were imprisoned. Arabella managed a clever escape for them both but she was caught and later died in the Tower of London. Even James suspected them of having a child. They were definitely together long enough. Arabella was confined for a time at her uncle's estate, long enough to have given birth, and during that period she refused to travel on the basis of her "frail health." Many family members and supporter's wished to see her or her heir take the throne, although she herself did not wish to, and would have been able to provide her with the means to protect such a child.

Three years after Arabella's death James had the matter investigated. Far from settling the matter, his "final report" added fuel to the rumors. He declared that "If such a child existed, it was of no threat to him" period. He should have been able to find out, and it would have been to his advantage to declare that no child existed.

Given her age (born about 1612), the high level of education Mary Dyer obviously had; her closeness to Ann Marbury Hutchinson (a member of the royal court and relative of Arabella who would have been in her 20's when Mary was born), the mystery of such a woman having appeared, seemingly from nowhere at age 22, the day she married William Dyer (from a family with close ties to the families of Ann Marbury and William Hutchinson) is just too much to be coincidence.

In one of her letters to William she mentions "Rachel weeping for her lost child" as if it were a code that they both understood. Add to this, Arabella's closest confidant, her aunt Mary, became estranged from her during her last year in the Tower over an unmentioned matter about their respective religions. Mary was a Catholic and Arabella was a Protestant, but from what we do know, the matter was not about either Arabella's choice of faith, or her tolerance for her aunts. Was it possibly over Arabella's desires for the upbringing of her daughter?

We do know that shortly after the death of king James would have reached them (and after the death Ann Hutchinson and her family) Mary Dyer left New England for London. Leaving a new born child, in addition to her other children, she sailed alone to England in the dead of winter, not the prefered time to travel. She remain there for some time, during which she became familiar with George Fox, later becoming a Quaker. Her husband visited her there, and no credable reports of marital difficulties between them have surfaced. She returned home after Cromwell took the power of the throne for himself. After this time she throws herself into her support for the Quakers, ending in her death.

Contradicting this myth is the research by and others which demonstrate the unlikehood of Mary Barrett being the daughter of Lady Arabella. For example, see The "Tradition" of Mary Dyer & Lady Arabella Stuart

[2699] BIOGRAPHY: He grew up in Anjou, but visited England as early as 1142 to defend his mother's claim to the disputed throne of Stephen; educated by famous scholars, he had a true love of reading and intellectual discussion.

BIOGRAPHY: His father Geoffrey of Anjou died in September 1151, leaving Normandy and Anjou to Henry. Henry's continental possessions more than doubled with his marriage to Eleanor of Aquitane, ex-wife of King Louis VII of France. After a succession agreement between Stephen and Matilda in1153, he was crowned Henry II in October 1154. Eleanor bore Henry five sons and three daughters between 1153 and1167; the relationship between Henry, Eleanor, and their sons Henry, Richard, and John proved to be tumultuous and treacherous. The empire ruled by Henry and his sons was considerably larger than the lone English is land - the French Angev in positions extended from Normandy southward to the Pyrenees, covering the counties of Brittany, Maine, Poitou, Touraine, and Gascony, as well as Anjou, Aquitane, and Normandy. Henry was extremely energetic and traveled quickly and extensively within the borders of his kingdom.

BIOGRAPHY: Henry revitalized the English Exchequer, issuing receipts for tax payments and keeping written accounts on rolled parchment. He replaced incompetent sheriffs, expanding the authority of royal courts, which brought more funds into his coffers. A body of common law emerged to replace feudal and county courts, which varied from place to place. Jury trials were initiated to end the old Germanic customary trials by ordeal or battle. Henry's systematic approach to law provided a common basis for development of royal institutions throughout the entire realm.

BIOGRAPHY: The process of strengthening the royal courts, however, yielded an unexpected controversy. Church courts, instituted by William the Conqueror, became a safe haven for criminals of varying degree and ability, for one in fifty of the English population qualified as clerics. Henry wished to transfer such cases to the royal courts, as the only punishment open to the Church courts was demotion of the cleric. Thomas Beckett, Henry's close friend and chancellor since 1155, was named Archbishop of Canterbury in June 1162. In an attempt to discredit claims that he was too closely tied to the king, he vehemently opposed the weakening of Church courts. Henry drove Beckett into exile from 1164-1170, when the Archbishop returned to England and greatly angered Henry over opposition to the coronation of Prince Henry.

BIOGRAPHY: Exasperated, Henry publicly announced a half-hearted desire to be rid off Beckett -- four ambitious knights took the king at his word and murdered Beckett in his own cathedral on December 29, 1170. Henry is perhaps best remembered for Beckett's murder, but in fact, the realm was better off without the contentious Archbishop. Henry endured a rather limited storm of protest over the incident, but the real threat to his power came from within his own family. Henry's sons - Henry the Young King, Richard, Geoffrey, and John - were never satisfied with any of their father's plans for dividing his lands and titles upon his death. The sons, at the encouragement (and sometimes because of the treatment) of their mother, rebelled against the king several times. Prince Henry, the only man ever to be crowned while his father still lived, wanted more than a royal title. Thus from 1193 to the end of his reign Henry was plagued by his rebellious sons, who always found a willing partner in Louis VII of France.

BIOGRAPHY: Henry succeeded King Stephen in October 1154, apparently after surviving a poisoning attempt by Stephen's supporters. He ruled his Empire of Britain, Normandy, Anjou, Maine, Poitou and Aquitaine with an iron rod and was the first king of England to add Ireland to his domains. With his fiery red hair and equally fiery nature, probably inherited from his mother, the Empress, Henry proved a king to be reckoned with and for 35 years he dominated Western Christendom as the most influential monarch of the day. His masterfulness was seriously challenged by the Thomas a Becket murder.The death of Henry the Young King in1183, and that of Geoffrey in 1186, gave no respite from his children's rebellion - Richard, with the assistance of Louis VII, attacked and defeated Henry, forcing him to accept a humiliating peace on July 4, 1189. Henry II died two days later, on July 6, 1189.

[4987] According to the (June 4) 1910 Census (Ward 1, Lexington, Illinois), her father was born in Ohio and her mother was born in Virginia. The census shows her as the mother of four children, but only three are listed on the 1910 Census. We surmise that the William, the oldest, was not mentioned as he no longer lived at home.
