Doc John Origins: Mary Hamilton - meanings (28) RE: Lyr Req: Mary Hamilton - meanings 20 Mar 08


Mary Queen of Scots did indeed have the 'Four Marys' as attendants. However, although Marys Beaton and Seaton were real, Carmichael and Hamilton are inventions. The others were called Fleming and Livingstone. The story of the infanticide has continental origins. I heard the story of Mary Hamilton was promoted by John Knox to discredit Queen Mary.
