Married: Theophilus Simmons on 22 February 1660, in St Leonard, Deal, Kent, England

Children: Notes: A "Martha Widow Simmans" was buried in Deal on 23 December 1680, but it is unclear to me if this refers to this Martha Cavill, or to her mother-in-law, Martha (Long) Simmans. I tend to think the latter, because this Theophilus was still alive to father Mercy in 1680, leaving a small window for this Martha to become a widow.
