Biography

Mary was a Friend (Quaker)

Mary was born about 1649, possibly in the Nansemond area of Virginia.

She married John Pierce in about 1668, possibly in Virginia[1]. Their first child (of six), Thomas, was born in 1669[2], but more likely in the Perquimans area. Her father was well-established there in 1672 and was a burgess[3]. They had six children together.

John's will was written on 11 September 1682[4], three months after the birth of their daughter, Mary. He probably died soon after. There is no probate date on the will. In the will he mentions his three sons and his daughter, Rebecca. One of his executors was William Bundy.

Mary's marriage record to William lists her father as Joseph Scott.

Mary and William were married at her house on 15 December 1683[5][6][7]. The went on to have one child together, Sarah, who was born the following year.

William passed away on the 27 March 1692[8].

Mary married for a third time to Nicholas Simons on 30 June 1692[8]. There are no recorded children from this marriage.

It is currently not possible to confirm the death date given on the profile.

Scott-10163 and Scott-6777 appear to represent the same person because: Same woman created for her first and second husband. Can we please merge them to get a unified biography? Thanks, Stephen

Is there a source for the date of death? Did she remarry after William died in 1692?
