Mary Norris Allerton
Birth: 1590
Berkshire, England
Death: Feb. 25, 1621
Plymouth County
Massachusetts, USA

"Mayflower" passenger
Wife of Isaac Allerton, the 5th signer of the "Mayflower Compact".

She traveled to the Colonies with her husband and 3 children Barhlomew, Remember and Mary Allerton Cushman, who became the wife of Elder Thomas Cushman.

She was the first person to give birth in the Plymouth Colonies (a stillborn born upon the Mayflower as it was docked in the harbor).

It is said that in the painting by Henry Sargent (1770-1885) entitled "Landing of the Pilgrims", Mary Norris Allerton is represented as having a fine face, rather beautiful, and as being of a "meek and quiet spirit". The painting was painted in 1818-1822 and is on permanent display at Pilgrim Hall Museum; Plymouth, MA.

Scene of the secret night burials of those who died during the settlement's first bitter winter. Corn was planted over their unmarked graves so that the Native Americans should not know how many had perished.
Mary Norris Allerton is the 2nd inscription on the monument.
