Birth: 1625, England
Death: Mar. 7, 1683
Suffolk County
Massachusetts, USA

Persis Pierce, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth (_____) Pierce of Charlestown; her identity is deduced from the 1665 will of Thomas Pierce naming granddaughters Mary Bridge and Elizabeth Jefts [Tufts] living with him, and the Charlestown town record of 1646/7 calling William Bridges and Peter Tufts brothers. Persis was born in England, probably about 1625, and came to Charlestown in 1634 with her family. "Peircis Bridges" was admitted to Charlestown church 30 November 1643.
She married William Bridges by 1643 and they had two children.
After William Bridges's death, and no later than 6 May 1653, she had married, as his second wife, John Harrison of Boston, ropemaker, by whom she had ten more children
