Priscilla Pabodie Wiswall was born on January 15, 1654 at Duxbury, Massachusetts. She was the second daughter named "Priscilla" born to William and Priscilla (Alden) Pabodie. On December 2, 1682 she married Rev. Ichabod Wiswall at Duxbury. They had six children. He died in 1700. She did not die until 1724. She died at Plymouth (now Kingston) on June 3, 1724, aged 71 years.

Several sources give her full name as Priscilla Pabodie Wiswall Averill Sprague. There was an opportunity in her life span for two more husbands. Specific information as to dates, places, and supporting documentation for marriages to Isaac Averill and Michael Sprague has not yet been supplied. The agrument against the other marriages is that the Duxbury Vital Records (primary source) give her name at her marriage to Ichabod Wiswall as Pabodie and the Kingston records show her name at death as Wiswall.
