Duplicate[edit]

Isn't she the same as Mary Bowes? Is this article a duplicate? User:Dimadick

Bought a newspaper[edit]

I'm assuming it's meant he bought a newspaper publication. Could someone please verify and update? Icemuon 17:15, 28 December 2006 (UTC)


Ancestor of the Queen[edit]

Mary is a direct ancestor of the present queen. The queen mother's maiden name was Bowes-Lyon. Shouldn't this be mentioned?

The beautiful Bowes estate (painted by Turner) is at Gibside, now in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear. The queen mother donated it to the National Trust.

As well as the play, the countess also wrote her extraordinary Confessions (1793)

Incidentally, where is this 'north country' the article speaks of. I think Stoney was apprehended at Streatlam Castle in County Durham.

spelling George Gray/Grey's name[edit]

The spelling of "George Gray/Grey" should be checked against sources and made consistent.--Wetman (talk) 15:02, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

Abortions[edit]

I very much doubt that Mary had any self induced abortions. The only medicines available at that time that may cause abortions were extremely dangerous poisons. Although many doctors claimed to have potions that could do of all sorts of wondrous things, medicine was still in it's infancy, and there is no credible evidence that any abortionicides at that time worked without risk of death or serious injury to the mother. It makes it even more unbelievable when she was supposed to have had, not one but THREE such abortions. Why would she say that she had had three abortions? That would have been like admitting murder.
