Mary is in fact Sir Roger’s eldest niece, albeit illegitimate. Sir Roger is paradoxically a drunkard and an ex-convict, a result of killing Mary Thorne’s father many years before. The revelation of Mary’s true parentage helps the eventual resolution of all of the obstacles in her pathtowards marrying Frank Gresham.
