Above notes from WFT coincide with earlier research showing Winifred Seybourne. Dates do not seem to make sense.
See 18 WFT 332 for extensive Calvert family and a different version of this person and the Calvert connection for our family: Helen Calvert the mother of Governor Thomas Green who was allegedly born on the high seas en route to Maryland. According to 22 WFT 1907, Helen or Ellin,= born 12-5-1615 to George Calvert and Anne Mynne.
Thomas Green, came to MD with the Ark and Dove Expedition in 1634. He= married 1st. Anne Cox, 2nd. Millicent Brown and 3rd. Winifred Seybourn widow of Nicholas Harvey. Winifred married Robert Clarke.

Subject: [MDSTMARY-L] Thomas Greene
There is nothing stated in "The Ark and the Dove Adventurers" to show any family relationship between Thomas Greene and Lord Baltimore's family. None of Lord Baltimore's daughters listed married anyone named Green/Greene.
The Thomas Greene in the book came w/ the Ark & Dove. He had 2 wives: Ann Cox and later Winifred Seybourne, widow of Nicholas Harvey. He was appointed Governor on 9 June 1647 by Leonard Calvert, but in 1648 William Stone became Governor. He was dead by 23 January 1651/52.
The book covers LOTS of his descendants, pp. 112-137. Among the surnames besides Greene: Wheeler, Marbury, Alvey, Simpson, Thompson, Clements, Noble, Hoye, Deakins, Hatton, Frazer, Smallwood, Hagan, Spalding, Hamilton.
Descendants pretty much cover all of Southern Maryland; later lines to Virginia, Kentucky, South Carolina.
One descendant #221. Raphael Spalding was the father of the famous Mother Catherine Spalding, founder of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth.
Interesting family line, but gives zero on the parents of Thomas Greene nor any marriage connection into the Lord Baltimore family.
