Biography
 
Mary was the daughter of John Skivington (1709-1779) and Jane Pit (-1778). Unusually for the time, her approximate birth date was recorded in the parish register. The Rector may not have approved of her birth ‘five weeks after they [her parents] were marryed’. This gives an approximate date of birth of 15 May 1737 which was two weeks prior to her baptism on 28 May 1737 within the parish of Shillinge Ockford and probably at the Church of the Holy Rood.5Church of England, “Dorset, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, ...continue Shillinge Ockford (Shilling Okeford) is now known as Shillingstone.
 
Mary did not survive childhood. She died at the age of 22 months and was buried on 20 March 1738 within the parish of Shillinge Ockford.6This is the date as documented using the Julian calendar. 7Church of England, “Dorset, England, Church of England Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, ...continue
