Despite published records to the contrary, she was NOT the wife of emigrant Peter Worden. The daughter by this name of Edward Winslow remained in England. See his profile for more details. See also footnote.
She was christened 30 Dec 1604 at St Peters, Droitwich, Worcester, England.
She was buried in 1693 in CHARLTON, Shapwick, Dorset, England.
↑Genealogical Advertiser, a Quarterly Magazine of Family History, Volume 3, 1900, p 64: "Mary, not Mercy, wife of Peter Worden, died at Yarmouth, May, 1687. Worden Family Record by O.N. Worden, 1868, thinks she was a Sears or Winslow. She certainly was not a Sears. Freeman's Hist. Cape Cod, II 764, says 'Kenelm Winslow, Jr., married first his cousin, Mercy Worden,' and this indicates a previous Winslow and Worden marriage [disproven later]. Mary Worden's will is recorded at Barnstable. A search of Winslow records might settle the connection." [It did; there wasn't one.]
