Mary was born about 1653. Mary Doty ... She passed away in 1715.[1]


  1. A source for this information is needed.

Mary m. Samuel Hatch. .

[MD 5:113] It has been shown that Faith Phillips had a daughter Mary2 Doty (Edward1); that Samuel Hatch of Scituate had a wife Mary in 1679; and that, in 1680, he receipted for his wife's share of Faith Phillips' estate. It is therefore evident that Samuel Hatch married Mary2 Doty between 12/22 July, 1677, and 28 February /12 March, 1679/80..

SusanHenry77 Mary Doty; Mary Hatch?: I find the argument laid out by Theodore Lazell in the Mayflower Descendant [5:111-113] and quoted, in part, in the story above, compelling. The maiden name of Faith Phillips, Edward's wife and Mary's mother, was Clarke. She married John Phillips as her second husband. Her will written in 1775 does not name her daughter Mary as Mary Hatch, since the Mary's marriage to Samuel Hatch must have taken place after Faith Phillip's death.

Doty family does not accept this Mary Doty as the daughter of Edward and Faith Doty. Eleazer did mary a Mary Doty - they do not accept Mary Doty as Edward and Faith's daughter because the marriage certificate information does not have her birth date on it even though it had Eleazer's So until the question of who Mary actually is, this remains in question and unanswered.

ELIEZER - CHURCHILL (John '). Bora in Plymouth, April 20, 1652. Admitted freeman at Plymouth, 1683. He lived at Hobshole, upon a part of the original estate of his father, having come into possession of the first house built by him.

According to the provisions of his fathers will and later arrangements with the mother and other heirs Elezier came into possession of that part of the original Churchill homestead which contained the "old house". To this was added a strip thirty feet wide lying next to Branch Blackmer, by grant of town, 1709. He died about 1716. In "Landmarks of Plymouth" Mr. Davis says : Eliezer Churchill probably built and occupied as a residence the building, taken down within a few 3'ears, which for many years was occupied as a shop by Ichabod and Edwin Morton. The grant was made for Eliezer " to erect a warehouse upon." This warehouse, if ever built, occupied a part of the site of the house of the late Edwin Morton.
