Mary Hyanno, known as "Litttle Dove", is said to have married early Plymouth
settler Augustine Bearse. Mary was the daughter of John Hyanno, who was born in
1595 at the Mattachee Village at what is now Barnstable, Massachusetts, and Mary
No-Pee, who was born at Gays Head on Martha's Vineyard and was the daughter of
No-Took-Seet. John was the son of Iyannough, the sachem of the Mattachee village
of Wampanoags of Cape Cod, and Princess Canonicus. He died after 1680 on Cape
Cod. Princess Canonicus was the daughter of Canochet (Chief) Canonicus and Posh-Pw.
Canochet Canonicus was the son of Wessonsuoum and Keshechoo. Wessonsuoum was the
son of Chief Tashtassuck, who was born before 1520.
However, family traditions of the Hyanno marriage exist to this day in other branches of the Bearse family. These traditions do not appear to have been derived from Franklin Bearse.
In our family lore, Earle White was told by his
parents that he was 1/64th Indian. If in fact they were referring to Mary
Hyanno they were off by two generations.
