Mary "Beach" was the first wife of Martin Palmer, and came with her husband and daughter Mary, in 1653 to Virginia. Their daughter Elizabeth was born about 1664, and married Robert Chandler. Mary died in December of 1676, New Kent, Colony of Virginia. Martin Palmer married his second wife about 1677.[1]

There appears to be no record of the "Beach" surname. Also, Martin's time-line with his wives are so mixed up it's difficult to know exactly whom he was married to when Elizabeth was born. If Mary didn't die until 1676, and daughter Elizabeth was born in 1664, then Mary would be her mother.[2]
