See Tree of relationship of Mary Little and John Peacock.
Their grandmother, Mary Church, firstly married John Peacock (about
1710-1742), and after being widowed, she married John Little (1712-1779).
Since John and Mary's fathers were half-brothers, John and Mary can be
considered to be half-cousins (or half-first-cousins).
Normally it is considered to be unwise for genetic reasons for first cousins
to marry. Marriage between second cousins is more acceptable, but still
can cause some genetic problems to the offspring. Half-first-cousins are
somewhere in between first and second cousin relationships, so there is a
possibility that the close relationship may lead to problems with the health
of the offspring.
It is unclear exactly how many children John and Mary had, but compared to his
brothers he had relatively few.
