Mary Harris did not marry a Gilbert Platt



We were informed by a site visitor that Mary Harris did not marry 1st a Gilbert Platt and did not have a daughter Tabitha by him.
This is a false claim that has been circulating for decades and that has no basis in fact or any evidence.
Surely the Thomas Ligon history book would have mentioned it if it had been true.
The claim was invented by someone wanting to claim royal ancestry from Capt Thomas Harris long before his claimed royal ancestry was proven wrong in 1994.
Unfortunately there are still over 12,000 Ancestry trees that still make the same claim for him that evidently hadn't read the 1616 Will of Thomas Harris in England.
