Mary Robinson (née Bentley; also spelt as Bently; c. 1610 – April 1, 1697) was the 10th great-grandmother of Cometan, classified as one of Cometan’s distant paternal ancestors in the McKerney family line. Born and baptised at St John the Baptist Church in Halifax, Yorkshire, Mary was the daughter of Robert Bentley (1585 – 1654) and the wife of James Robinson (1605 – 1692), also mother to Elizabeth Robinson who was born in 1636.
Mary is recorded as having married her husband James on 10th June 1628 at St John the Baptist Church in Halifax at the age of eighteen. Mary’s father is thought to have been named Robert Bentley (1585 – 1654) although the identity of Mary’s mother remains unknown. Mary is understood to have died in Sherburn-in-Elmet in Yorkshire and to have been buried at St Peter’s Parish Church in Leeds.
In Cometanic ancestry, Mary is categorised as part of the 12th generation retrograde, classifying her as a distant ancestor of Cometan.
