Mary Heward was born in 1815 at Holme, Yorkshire, England.
Mary Heward was the daughter of Caleb Howard and Betty Beardsell.
in 1835 Mary Heward lived at Holm, Yorkshire, England.

'Joseph Dearnley of Holm of this Parish and Mary Heward of Holm of this Parish were married in this Church by Banns..' 24 Aug 1835
Joseph signed & Mary made her mark.
Winesses: Samuel Noble & Thomas Heaton (believed to be church wardens)
'George Heward of Holm of this Parish and Mary Kaye of Holm of this Parish were married in this Church by Banns..' 24 Aug 1835
George signed & Mary made her mark.
Winesses: Joseph Marsden and John Beardsel
The second marriage belongs to George Heward 1815-. This George had a sister Mary born 1827,
so the 1835 marriages were not Heward siblings (this is implied by the different witnesses for the 2 marriages). The 2 bridegrooms were related via the
Dearnleys, as Joseph Dearnley and George Heward were second cousins (with great-grandparents James D and Ann Crosland) and they also related by
marriage as George's sister Ann had married Joseph's brother William.
According to an Ancestry tree, the 2 Hewards are also second cousins with great-grandparents John Hayward and Sarah Bennit. - JAD
Another popular site has this marriage of Joseph Dearnley to 'Mary Mitchell'. However, Isaac Dearnley (Mary's son) was with his grandfather Caleb Howard in 1851.
