Martin Harvey quotes records in AQ, Winter 1952, "This morning, very early, the Duchess of York was brought to bed of a daughter at St. James...April 30,1662 OS." Harvey adds, "An old medical note-book recorded by Sloane in 1708 gave the precise time of 2:22 AM; a biographer of the period gave 1:30 AM."

(Modern Astrology 5/1917 gave 1:00 AM.

Penfield in Mercury Hour 1/1990 quotes "William's Mary" by Elizabeth Hamilton for 1:00 AM.

Holliday quotes "William and Mary" by Henri and Barbara van der Zee, MacMillan, 1975, p.33, for the date, no time.)

Sy Scholfield quotes "Mrs. Dawson's Diary concerning the births, ages, and deaths of James the IId's children" in "Reliquiæ Hearnianæ: the remains of Thomas Hearne, extracts from his MS. diaries, collected with a few notes by P. Bliss, Volume 1" by Thomas Hearne (Oxford: James Wright, 1857), p. 274: "Lady Mary was born upon the 30th of April 1662, at one o'clock in the morning." Mrs Dawson was the lady of the bedchamber (midwife) to Anne Hyde, in attendance when Anne was born.
