Birth: 1618
City of Exeter
Devon, England
Death: Apr. 9, 1705
Essex County
Massachusetts, USA

Mary Foster came from England to America in 1638 when she was about 20 yrs. old with her parnets, REGINALD & JUDITH FOSTER, five brothers and a sister. The family settled in Ipswich in Mass. Bay Colony.

According to "Foster Genealogy: being the record of the posterity of Reginald Foster, an early inhabitant of Ipswich in New England....", by Frederick Clifton Pierce, p. 121, Mary Foster married first Daniel Wood and second Francis Peabody. [Daniel Wood's estate was settled in 1648 and Mary Wood was the executrix of his estate & was to bring up the children]. If this is the same Mary, she had children from her first marriage. Yet, according to the same book, Francis & Mary Foster had fourteen children beginning with John who was born in 1642 ending with Nathaniel who was born in 1669. If this is true, she would have married Francis Peabody prior to 1642 and could not have married Daniel Wood.

The above book also gives her death date as April 9, 1705.
