WARNING: This descendency now in doubt.

If a surname link doesn't work, the information may still be loading.

Beats there a heart that has not, as a child, wondered if they REALLY were a prince or princess. Well, now is your chance. Ignore the people that say that everyone is descended from everyone. Think of how many places you've looked for ancestors and haven't found any. And so what if we're cousins with half of New York City. It's still fun! These royal and noble ancestors are only from my own family tree.

Please let me know if you find a link that no longer works.

Mary Fienne's descent from Sir George Gregory Fienes came originally from the "Genealogy of the Wheatleigh Family", written in 1931.

Bruce Carpenter quoted a different source.

According to the Dictionary of National Biography (British), Sir George Gregory Fienes had no children and his estates were taken over by his sister [Margaret]. Therefore the Mary listed on your page has no connection to royalty.
Bruce Carpenter (descendant of Thomas Bliss)

But a more recent email points to Mary as the bastard daughter of Sir George Gregory Fienes.

There is a website called simply Anne Sackville (B. Dacre of the South) that has information on Mary Fienes.

The mother of Mary is not mentioned, but it is mentioned in this history that Anne Sackville would have nothing to do with Mary because she was a bastard daughter of her husband, George Gregory Fienes. The site is at

The person who did this research is Robin Kullick of the Bristol Renassaince Faire. In the article it mentions that Anne Sackville was from a very powerful and wealthy family, her father owning Salisbury Court - her father being Sir Richard Sackville a relation of the Boleyns. Her grandfather on her mother's side was the Lord Mayor of London - so I would imagine it would have been very difficult for a bastard daughter of a man who had so much less than his wife's family. It does mention that she married someone named Wheatley in the article.

If you have any information on this issue, I would love to hear from you.
