Mary or Ann(e) Russell, born 18 Apr 1574, Badby, Northamptonshire, England married John Root on 23 Jul 1600, Badby, Northamptonshire, England.
Her parents were William RUSSELL and Anne FORESTER.
Her assumed father:
Francis William Russell, Lord Russell
Born 1553, Badby, Northamptonshire, England. Married 1st 15 Apr 1571 to Juliana Foster (dau. of Sir John Foster of Bamburgh). Married 2nd in Northamptonshire, England before 1572 to Ann Forester. Died 27 Jul 1585 at Hexpathgate. Some sources say 2nd marriage was 1573/8 and in Badby Parish of Northampton, England.
I've looked at a number of English genealogy sites, none seem to mention this second marriage to Ann Forester, let alone her daughter Ann(e) or Mary. Are there any contemporary American or English professional genealogists who have actually examined the local records in Badby, Northampton? How was it deducted that Anne(e) or Mary's father William was actually Francis William Russell, Lord Russell? There does not seem to be a marriage record for William and Ann (Forester) Russell, so how was that documented? What about Francis William Russell's will? Could there have been a totally different William and Ann Russell in the small village of Badby?
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
