Mary Brown was born in England about 1629. She was the daughter of Abraham and Lydia Brown. She came to New England with her parents in 1631. They settled in Watertown, Middlesex, Massachusetts. On April 10, 1650, in Malden, Middlesex, she married John Lewis of Malden as his second wife. He had six children. As was the custom in those days for men with families who needed another wife, she was much younger than him. She was about 21 and he was about 37. Mary and John had six children of their own, born in Malden: Abraham, Jonathan, Mary Penfield, Hannah Melvin, Isaac, & Trial. John died in Malden, probably in September of 1657. Mary soon married John Cutler of Woburn, Middlesex. Mary and her new husband had one daughter, named Mary, born in 1663. John Cutler died in Woburn about 1678. Mary then married her daughter Mary's father-in-law, Matthew Smith Sr. Matthew lived until after 1694. There is a record of a Mary Smith, wife of John Smith, who died of smallpox in Charlestown on May 22, 1691. [1]
