  • Although I have only found a record for one marriage I believe that Thomas Wyatt had two wives, both named Mary: Mary Ludgater and Mary Wyatt. There is a record of the burial of Mary wife of Thomas Wyatt in 1703, and there was a gap of several years before Thomas's next child was born. When Mary Ludgater's father Robt Ludgater made his will in 1722 he only made bequests to Thomas's two eldest children Mary Wyatt and Etheldreda Wyatt, and when Mary Wyatt widow of Thomas Wyatt made her will in 1743 she refers to her son Stephen Jay and did not make bequests to Mary or Etheldreda, even though Etheldreda was still alive.
