Mary Dering (wife of Archdeacon Henry Cary)

Regarding Mary Dering. I found her ancestry in a footnote on the Blayney family. The first husband of her grandmother, Margaret Moore, was Sir Henry, Baron Blayney. The footnote states that Margaret Moore married 2ndly to Charles Dering, Auditor of the Exchequer of Ireland, who was the son of Sir Edward Dering, 2nd Bt and Mary Harvey.

Margaret and Charles had a son, Henry Dering, who married Mary King, (widow of Chidley Coote, and daughter of Sir Robert King, 1st Bt Rockingham, and his wife Francis Gore).

Henry & Mary's daughter was Mary Dering who married Archdeacon Henry Cary
Mary Dering died in Trim on 1st July 1756 (reported in Gentleman's Magazine), presumable while travelling between Portarlington, where they lived, and Dublin.


Looking for Deering/Dering in Dublin, IRE

Mary Deering married Henry Cary in Dublin.

The Dublin Gazette of Tuesday 15th Feb, 1742/3 reads:
Rev. Henry Cary, son of the Bishop of Killala was on last Saturday married to Miss Mary DEERING, a young lady of great beauty, merit and a fortune of ₤5000 sterling.

Who was she? Who were her family? Why are they not mentioned in the marriage announcement?
Was she born in Ireland or England? Was she related to the Derings of Kent?
Henry's will mentions her dowry but not her family.
Where did she die? Did she die in Killala where her father-in-law was Bishop and who is buried near "four of his grandchildren"? If so, why is she not mentioned? Did she die in Portarlington, where her husband later lived and re-married to Deborah Hamon/Hammond in 1756.

I have scoured all ancestry.com sources without success.
