    Notes 
    • Mary was the step-daughter of Henry Vincent and biological daughter of Ann Elizabeth Vincent, formerly, Hopkins, formerly unknown. Mary was mentioned in her step-father's will, along with Fowler Walker, her husband. While she will be removed as the biological daughter of Henry eventually, I would like to get her mother's maiden name known first.
      == Biography ==Mary Vincent was born about 1793. She was the step-daughter of [[Vincent-2578|Henry Vincent]] and Elizabeth Hopkins nee ?
      On 7th January 1813, Mary Hopkins married Fowler Walker. The marriage took place at St James in Westminster in the presence of Henry Vincent and Anne (Elizabeth) Vincent, her biological mother. "England Marriages, 1538–1973 ," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NKNZ-7WB : 10 February 2018), Fowler Walker and Mary Hopkins, 07 Jan 1813; citing Saint James,Westminster,London,England, reference , index based upon data collected by the Genealogical Society of Utah, Salt Lake City; FHL microfilm 1,042,319. The marriage was by license. There is no indication to say whether Mary was a spinster, or a widow, but given her age, it is reasonable to believe she was single without children at the time.
      The following year, Mary and Fowler had a son they named Henry Vincent Louis Fowler Walker"England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J3G7-L4M : 30 December 2014, Henry Fowler Vincent Louis Walker, 1814); citing SAINT JAME'S, WESTMINSTER, LONDON, ENGLAND, index based upon data collected by the Genealogical Society of Utah, Salt Lake City; FHL microfilm 1,042,309.
      In 1841, Mary, her husband and two daughters were living in Remenham, Berkshire. "England and Wales Census, 1841," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MQRQ-SGF : 13 December 2017), Fowler Walker, Remenham, Berkshire, England; from "1841 England, Scotland and Wales census," database and images, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing PRO HO 107, The National Archives, Kew, Surrey.
      By 1851, Mary was 58 years old. "England and Wales Census, 1851," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SGXK-NBP : 24 October 2017), Mary Walker in household of Fowler Walker, Remenham, Oxfordshire, England; citing Remenham, Oxfordshire, England, p. 11, from "1851 England, Scotland and Wales census," database and images, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing PRO HO 107, The National Archives of the UK, Kew, Surrey. She was still living in the same place, but the census indicates Remenham had now become a village in the region of Oxfordshire.


      Mary's occupation was listed as a Fundholder.

      ==Note==Please do not remove Mary as daughter of Henry until mother's maiden name is known. Some people think it was Williams, but I think that might be a mistake. There was an Elizabeth Williams who married a Henry Vincent, but previous research indicated it was likely another man.
