Mary Wathen (neé Beardmore) was the star pupil of John Wesley's nephew Samuel Wesley, who is said to have been the greatest organ player of his time. This, plus the fact that her father Joseph Beardmore was one of the trustees of Wesley's Chapel, makes it very likely that Mary played organ for the chapel. Computer records for the chapel add the following information: Mary Wathen (neé Beardmore) - Buried Jan. 1, 1839 - aged 59. Died at 17 Euston Square.
