Judith Quincy nee Pares (d. 1656) was an ancestor of Abigail Adams, wife of second U.S. president John Adams, and of Dorothy Scott, the wife of statesman John Hancock.

Birth and Baptism

Birth is estimated around 1602 based on her marriage of 1623. No other indication of age or origins is yet known and a visual scan of the Lilford parish register did not find her baptism back to 1592.


Judith married Edmond Quincy on 15 Jul 1623 in Lilford, Northamptonshire, England.[1][2]

The marriage also appears in "Colonial Families of the USA, 1607-1775 Volume IV"[3] which states (unsourced) a Quincy family lineage including heraldic arms. This publication states that it was assembled from materials in possession of the various family descendants as well as from public records, so should be treated with caution.

Her supposed second and third marriages have not been deeply researched yet. ( See 3rd marriage )

Emigration 1633

Edmund Quincy and his wife Judith came to New England with the Rev. John Cotton, arriving in Boston on September 4, 1633. He was made a freeman and deputy March 4, 1633/34. In December 1635 he received, jointly with William Coddington, a large grant of land at Mount Wollaston, then part of Boston and now in Quincy, MA. His share was about 400 acres. His farmhouse that stood on what is now the southeast corner of Hancock Street and Butler Road was demolished about 1897. The site is marked by a granite monument.[4]

She is named in her second husband's will written 30 Oct 1643 in Braintree, Plymouth Colony so she lived after that date: Moses Paine of Braintree in New England, Gent... 20 (4) 1643 he bestows 20 shillings to wife Judith Paine to be paid over 10 years. [5]

Death and Estate

Various death dates in 1654 are seen on the internet (29 March, November) are seen but without sourcing. More research needed.

A specific death date of 29 Mar 1654 is given in an unsourced vanity publication by Clara May Paine Ohler.[6]

Paine-249 and Pares-1 appear to represent the same person because: This Judith Paine was previously attached to Robert Hull (bef.1584-bef.1597). She was removed as his wife because he died at age 12. It appears that her correct husband was Robert Hull (abt.1599-1666).

It is also apparent that this Judith Paine profile should be merged with Judith (Pares) Paine (abt.1602-abt.1654) who already appears as the wife of Robert Hull (abt.1599-1666).

Pares-50 and Pares-1 appear to represent the same person because: Clear duplicate as wife of Edmund Quincy/Chancey who also needs a merge. No sources or supported data on original Pares-50 profile.

Conflicting information here. Bio has Hannah Unknown born 1632 but profile has Judith Pares born 1597.
