Mary was born in Shaftbury, Kent, England about 1684. Around age 20, she became the first wife of Abraham Rideout. They married in Kent, England roughly in 1704. Together they immigrated to the Colonies with at least their son, Nicholas. They also had a daughter, Prudence, but her birth and death dates and places are unknown.

Since her husband worked as a scribe, he was an educated person. Documents say they were land owners, as well. It can be assumed they were wealthy for their time.

Their days in Maine were filled with violence between settlers and local tribes. One researcher believes Mary Rideout was killed in a raid. Shortly after her death her husband remarried and moved to Massachusetts.
