Some Background

Mary may have been named Rose. Though most sources for John Wattell's marriage (including the Chelmsford marriage records) give the name of his wife as Mary Goole, (some with this birthdate), it is possible that this Mary was named Rose as others give that as her name... as the second daughter of Francis and Rose Goole that would have been a typical naming pattern.... and there is no Rose among their eight daughters. Francis and Rose apparently had another daughter born 15 years after this Mary/Rose (in 1666) also named Mary who apparently married Noah Fisk in Chelmsford, in 1686.4,5
