  2. 3.  Mary Gawkroger alias Platt was born about 1607; died in 1674.

    Notes:

    Her odd surname means "left-handed Roger." Many of her relatives appear to have used Platt or Platts as an alternative surname, after the area of Yorkshire the family was associated with. But she appears to have used Gawkroger or Gawroger during the periods of her life when she was unmarried. The exact identity of her parents, however, is unclear.
