Undetermined Origin:Mary's origin is unknown. Our first record of her is as the wife of Thomas Fairweather. [1] We do not know her parents, or even her maiden name. She is said to have been born c. 1610 in England. This birth date is a guess, probably based on the date of her first child born in 1634.


Mary married three times.

  • She married c. 1634, as her 1st, to Thomas Fairweather aka Fayreweather.[1]
  • She married in 1639 at Boston, Essex County, Massachusetts Bay Colony, as her 2nd, to John Evered aka Webb.[1]
  • She married 7 September 1669, at Ipswich, Massachusetts, as his 2nd, and as her 3rd, to William Goodhue.[1]

From New England Marriages Prior to 1700, pg. 309, her 3rd marriage reads as follows: "William Goodhue (1615) and 2nd wife Mary (?Osborn) (Fairweather) Webb (-7 Dep 1680), w Thomas, w John; 7 Sep 1669; Ipswich."

Mary died at Ipswich 6 December 1688.[1]

Research notes

Needs to be incorporated: Anderson's Winthrop Fleet: Thomas Fairweather married by 1634 Mary _____ (given as mother in birth entry for John). It has been suggested thqt she was the Mary Morton who was admitted to the Boston church as member #86, which would have been during the winter of 1630-1, of whom there are no subsequent records. They had 2-3 children: John, Mary, & Thomas (based solely on the 1638 death record). She married (2) between 21 Jun 1639 & 7 Aug 1639, JOHN EVERED alias WEBB {1635, Boston}, Mary (____) Fairweather, widow of THOMAS FAIRWEATHER {1630, widow," deeded to "my son John Fayreweather... the one-half of all my lands lying in Pullin-point Neck and Hogg Island, with the appurtenances, equally to br divided ... I and the said John shall & will stand seized of the other half of my said lands unto the use of myself for my life and afterwards to the use of such child and children that shall be lawfully begotten between me and John Everet alias Webb whom I intend by the grace of God to take to my husband." No recorded children of this 2nd marriage. She married (3) Ipswich 7 September 1669 as his second wife WILLIAM GOODHUE {1635, Ipswich}. No recorded children of the 3rd marriage. She died at Ipswich 7 Sep 1680.

Michael, it seems OK to go, I sent a message to the user who put the unmerged match on it to double-check.

Project protection for Unknown-234311 prevents merger into Osborn-2567. I believe that the merger should proceed without having to merge the Osborn profile into Unknown as the surname. If you will, please remove the protection so the the submitted merge may proceed.

There is a Fairweather Y-DNA study at Family Tree DNA. It would be really interesting to compare a direct male descendant from Thomas Fairweather (Fairweather-41) with the Y-DNA from the English Fairweathers who did not emigrate. Perhaps, we can determine which area of England he lived in.
Fayerweather Friends by Donald Williams, ISBN 0969455402, has Mary's name as "Osborn?/Morton?"
