Mary Turner, daughter of Nathaniel Turner and his wife, Margaret, was born about 1626.[1] This is based on the estimated birth of her first child in 1646. Her parents had not yet migrated to New England, so she was probably born in England.

Nathaniel and his family first settled in Lynn, Massachusetts, as early as 1630, where he was well regarded. His house in Massachusetts burned in 1637, and this may have been a factor in his decision to go to New Haven with the original planters. In New Haven, he was the Captain of military affairs.


Mary married Thomas Yale (d. 1683), son of Thomas Yale.[1] Thomas' mother Anne was married to Theophilus Eaton, who became Governor of the New Haven Colony. On the death of her father in 1646, Mr. Yale accepted her share of his estate.


Mrs. Mary Yale died October 15, 1704 in New Haven, Connecticut.[2]

Mary got connected in error as husband to her son Thomas, so I am going to remove that.
