I know you're quoting Bronwen saying this, but I just want to clarify
that Gartmore did not descend to Mary Hodge *because* she was a
granddaughter of the Baronet. So if we're using that as a key to
Mary's inheriting, it's wrong.
Mary obtained Gartmore, through a heir-male line into which she
Gartmore did not descend to these girls as their inheritence but
rather went to the 1st Baronet's brother (unnamed) and then in turn to
that man's two sons, Robert in 1708, and then William Graham of
This last one is whom Mary Hodge married, so Gartmore after this
rambling about, came back into the line, but it was not direct, it was
because she married back into it.
