Biography

U.S. Southern Colonies Project logo
Mary (Peasley) Ingram was a Maryland colonist.
This profile is part of the Peasley Name Study.

Birth

No birth record for Mary Peasley has been found. She was likely born around 1687 in Anne Arundel County. She was the daughter of John Peasley which is proved because her son, Peasley Ingram is called his grandson in the will of John Peasley.[1]

Marriage to James Homewood

Mary Peasley was married twice. Her first husband was James Homewood. It is said that James married two women by the name of Mary, with Mary Peasley being the 2nd and his widow. His children were:

  • Son James Homewood b. 17 April 1692 d. 1710:[2]
  • Daughter Sarah Homewood b. 20 Jan 1700:[3]
  • Son Thomas Homewood (posthumous) b. 27 May 1704: [4]

Given that there are so many years between son James and daughter Sarah, it is quite possible James was the child of the first wife and not Mary Peasley. Supporting this also, is the fact that Mary's father failed to include James Homewood II in his 1707 as a grandchild.[5]

James Homewood wrote his will 12 November 1703 and proved in Anne Arundel County, 18 March 1703/4 by Henry Browne, Henry Lewis and Mary Harrad. The Orphan's Court appointed Mary as guardian of children, Sarah and Thomas. Also named as being on her plantation was, "the orphan, Robert Moss of Ralph". James willed to his unborn child Thomas, the land on the north side of Otter Pond and 100 acres of "The Complement" at the mouth of the Narrows, also "Homewood's Town", adjacent to the tract called "Pawson's Plain". He willed the residue of the reality in Maryland to his son James, but in the event of the death of his children without issues, said lands were to pass to the next of Homewood's heirs.[6]

Marriage to James Ingram

Mary Peasley, the widow of James Homewood, married John Ingram, son of John Ingram, on 3 September 1705 in Westminster Parish, Anne Arundel, Maryland, [7] There were two men with the name John Ingram living in the Baltimore County/Anne Arundel County area in the early 1700s. Both men married women named Mary, but careful research proves they are two separate people. See the profile for John Ingram of Baltimore County to see the difference.

Mary & James were the parents of two children whose births are recorded in St. Margaret's Parish in Anne Arundel County:

John Ingram and Mary parents of Pasly Ingram son b. 24 AUG 1707[5]
John Ingram and Mary parents of Hanah Ingram dau. b. 25 MAY 1710
Hana Ingram (of John and Mary) died 25 JUL 1712. [8]

Death

The death of Mary Ingram on 29 AUG 1717 is recorded in St. Margaret's Parish in Anne Arundel County. She passed away 6 months after the death of her husband. [8]
