The descent of Mary Lawrence of MA, who m. Thomas Burnham, is detailed in Gary Boyd Roberts' Royal descents of 500 immigrants to the American colonies or the United States [Baltimore: GPC, 2000], pp. 455-57. Roberts begins the lineage at Louis IV, king of France.
Portions of the lineage, from Pecche to Hinkley, are detailed in The Complete Peerage, v. 10, pp. 333-38. The Pecche family also can claim descents from the dukes of Normandy.
I hope this information helps. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.
