About Hannah Pierce

Abraham2 Peirce (Abraham1) (Source: PCR 4:47.)

  • was born 08 Jan, 1637/38 in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and
  • died 08 Jan, 1717/18 in Duxbury, Massachusetts.
  • He married (1) Hannah Baker Bef. 1677 in Yarmouth, MA, daughter of Francis Baker and Isabel Twining.
  • He married (2) Hannah Glass 29 Oct, 1695 in Scituate, Masssachuetts, daughter of James Glass and Mary Pontus.

Abraham Peirce, Jr. was appointed administrator of his father's estate in 1673, probably the same year his father died. The name of Abraham Jr.'s first wife is not known, but "Freeman's Cape Cod" and the "Baker Family of Yarmouth" state that Hannah Baker married "Peirce." (See Harvey Cushman Piercre's "Seven Pierce Families".) Since two of Hannah Baker's brothers married sisters of Abraham Peirce, Jr., it seems likely that Hannah Baker did marry this Abraham Peirce.

From Sally Thomas:

Child 5 Hannah. It is probable—almost certain—that she married Abraham Peirce b. Jan 1638; died Jan. 1718, son of Abraham Peirce and Rebecca. She is called Hannah Pearse in her father’s will; it is known that Abraham had an earlier wife than Hannah Glass, whom he married in 1695; and 2 of Abraham’s sisters married 2 of Hannah Baker’s brothers. Hannah Baker Peirce must have died between 4 Mar. 1693, the date of her father’s will, and 29 Oct. 1695, the date of her husband’s second marriage.
