Mary Hawxhurst was born in Warwick England. Her father Sampson Hawxhurst was a vicar of the church on Nuneaton in Warwick England. Mary's mother is unknown to us. Mary sailed with her brother Christopher to Salem Mass. in 1630.

At the age of 33 Mary married Robert Coles in RI. Mary was Robert's second wife. Robert sailed to America with the Winthrop Fleet. Robert and Mary had eight childern. Much has been written about Mary's husband in our history books. He led a colorful life. Often he was in conflict with the newly formed government and yet at times he was one of the leaders. Mary was always at his side and she too was considered "difficult" by the establishment at certain times during their marriage. After Robert's death Mary married Matthias Harvey and moved to Long Island.
