Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
Daughter of Sir William http://www.pepysdiary.com/encyclopedia/852/ and Lady Elizabeth Batten http://www.pepysdiary.com/encyclopedia/1572/ , and sister of Martha http://www.pepysdiary.com/encyclopedia/1842/ .
Mary Leming (Lemyng or Leamynge) was the wife of James Lemyng, born c. 1618, eldest son and heir of John Lemyng, Ironmonger of London, and Joane Polley of Colchester, Essex. (source: Visitations of London, 1634).
In 1641, James Lemyng was admitted to Gray's Inn; married 30 Jun 1645, at St. Leonard's Bromley; died 16 April 1671.
from L&M Companion--the Batten entry...[of Batten's four children] Mary married one Leming of Colchester. (A widow Mary Leming of St Mary's Colchester died in 1671; her husband James, who died in 1668, may possibly have been Batten's son-in-law if the date of his death can be reconciled with Pepys's statement that he was dying as early as 1662)....
Note Mary's older sister Martha married William Castle the Shipbuilder.
