----------, Hannah (b. )
Note: Hannah, whose maiden name may have been Haskins, was married to George Parrott before she married Daniel Maynadier.

According to Historic Graves of Maryland and the District of Columbia by Helen W. Ridgely (1908), Mrs. Maynadier died and was quickly buried. But because she was wearing a valuable ring, her grave was robbed the night she was buried. The thief, unable to remove the ring, tried to sever her finger. At this point, the "corpse" began moaning and the thief--needless to say scared out of his wits--ran off. She then rose from her grave and made her way to her house and knocked on the door. Her husband opened it, to find standing before him the wife he had buried that afternoon. Probably just as scared as the thief, but at least without a guilty conscience, he took her in and nursed her back to health. She lived for several more years. Indeed, she outlived her husband.

North, Thomas (b. ABT 1535, d. ABT 1601)
Note: Sir Thomas North was probably educated at Peterhouse at Cambridge and entered as a student at Lincoln's Inn but was never called to the bar.

He was a major literary figure in Elizabethan England. And while he worked almost entirely in translations, his prose style was highly influential on his contemporaries.

His most famous and enduring work was his translation of Plutarch's Lives, first published in 1579, with subsequent, enlarged editions in 1595 and 1603. The Dictionary of National Biography says of this work, "North dedicated the book to Queen Elizabeth, and it was one of the most popular of her day. It is written throughout in admirably vivid and robust prose. But it is as Shakespeare's storehouse of classical learning that it presents itself in its most interesting aspect. To it (it is not too much to say) we owe the existence of the plays of Julius Caesar, Coriolanus, and Antony and Cleopatra, while A Midsummer Night's Dream, Pericles, and Timon of Athens are all indebted to it. In Coriolanus whole speeches have been transferred bodily from North, but it is in Antony and Cleopatra that North's diction has been mostly closely followed."

There is an article on North in the Dictionary of National Biography.
