The PCC will of Richard Perry, dated 1647, mentions his wife Alice, and his daughters Mary Cade and Elizabeth Stanley.

What I cannot discover is the maiden name of Alice, or the full names of Mary and Elizabeth's husbands.

Any help would be appreciated.

Did these people live in England all their lives? Do you have any additional time frame information other than the 1647 date of the will? Birth years, marriage years for Richard and Alice would be helpful if you have them. Same thing for their offspring if available. Can you narrow down to the county and or city of these events?
UK Frank, I rarely deal with overseas folk, I find that researching those in the UK gives me more than enough to work on. There were originally from Exeter.
Two of my ancestors were born near Exeter, in Devon. They were Roger Conant who was Christened in 1592 and his wife, Sarah Horton, who was born about 1594. If they were the first generation, then I am the 12th. They settled in Massachusetts.

Hi Tim! could you please put a link to Richard's WikiTree profile?  I scanned the WikiTree list of men named Richard Perry, looking particularly at profiles you manage, but i wasn't able to pick him out.  

Regards

Thanks Frank, that is a great help. I will now see if I can find Alice's will in the PCC.
Your indication that the family started out in Exeter, helped to narrow down the search at familysearch.org .
Thanks, I have learned that there is little point in being pedantic about the surname spelling, particularly as there was no formal method in the early years. My own family variously wrote it as - Pery, Peyre, Perrie, Perre, and several more. Possibly due to writing phonetically, and dependent upon their geographical location, it's effect upon pronunciation.
