Surname Saturday -- Mary LNU (married to Richard Pray, England to colonial New England)

It's Surname Saturday, and I'm "counting down" my Ancestral Name List each week.  

I am in the 8th great-grandmothers and I'm up to Ancestor #1465, who is Mary LNU  (1629-1686) 
[Note: the earlier great-grandmothers and 8th great-grandfathers have been covered in earlier posts].

My ancestral line back through one generation of this LNU family line is:

1. Randall J. Seaver

2. Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983)
3. Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002)

44.  Jonathan White (1805-1850)
45.  Miranda Wade (1804-1850)

182.  Nathaniel Horton (1730-1819)
183.  Sarah Pray (1734-1820)

366.  Richard Pray (1683-1755)
367.  Rachel LNU (1685-1755)

733.  Sarah Brown (1662-1733)

1464.  Richard Pray, born about 1629 in England; died 1693 in Providence, Providence, Rhode Island, United States.  He was the son of 2928. Quinton Pray and 2929. Joan Valliance.  He married about 1648 in probably Lynn, Essex, Massachusetts, United States.
1465.  Mary LNU, born about 1629 in England; died about 1686 in Providence, Providence, Rhode Island, United States.

Children of Richard Pray and Mary are:
*  John Pray (1643-1733), married 1678 Sarah Brown (1662-1733)
*  William Pray (1655-????).
*  Mary Pray (1656-????), married 1677 Joseph Woodward (????-1728).
*  Ephraim Pray (1657-1727), married 1691 Sarah Claghorn (1659-1726).

Information about the Pray family was obtained from:

*  Colonel Harold Leonard Pray, USAF Retired, The Pray Family of Braintree, Quincy and Weymouth, Massachusetts, Including Later Generations Through the United States, 1643-2006 (Santa Maria, Calif.: Harold Pray, 2006).

I don't think any researcher has found information about Mary LNU.  I haven't.
