There is no evidence, thus far, for Mary's maiden name. (2021) Information from U.S. and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900, whose source is pedigree charts is inadequate documentation.

Mary was the widow of William Buel (Bewell). They were married on Nov. 18, 1640 in Windsor and her maiden name was not given.

William left his wife two parcels of land, one by the Gravell Hill and one by the Mill Brook. Mary "Bewell", his relict, made oath 6 Mar 1681/1682 that she had made a true presentment of his estate and the distribution was accepted.

The inventory of her estate was taken Oct. 11, 1684 by James Hilliard & Samuel Barber and amounted to 19-15-06.
Her will dated August, 1684 as follows:
.."to my eldest daughter Mary Mills my Westcoate, Coat, & that Hatt which was Sarah's, & 1 white linen apron, & 1 blue Apron which it is wove";
.."and the rest of my Wool & Linen Clothes I give to my daughter Hannah Palmer, & my Hatt, & 1 pewter Platter, & 1 tin pann."
...."I give to my daughter Hepzibah Welles 6 yards of linen Cloth",
..."& I give to my gr. Child Sarah Palmer Wool Cloth for a Waste Coat, & the rest of my Wool Cloth is to be divided between my daughters Mary & Hannah, & the rest of my linen cloth is to be divided between my two daughters Mary & Hannah, & I give to my daughter Hannah 1 blue apron, & that is all that I give to my daughter."
Mary did not sign her will, but it was witnessed by James & Mary Hillier. Administration granted to son, Peter Buell.
