About Mary Loomis

Mary White was baptised on August 24, 1590 in Shalfold, County of Essex, England. Based on her baptismal record, her birth year is estimated as 1590. She came from a well-do-do family. Her father was Robert White (sometimes spelled Whighte), a property owner and man of considerable means for the times, and her mother was Bridget Allgar.

It has been speculated by one author that Mary may have met her future husband when she came to the large Braintree market with her father from their village of Shalford, a few miles away. On June 30, 1614 at the age of 23, Mary married Joseph Loomis, a successful cloth merchant in Braintree, England, and they had eight children. (See story for Joseph Loomis.)

Two of Mary's siblings came to America in 1632--her brother John White (who became a church elder) and his wife Mary Levitt, and her sister Elizabeth White and her husband William Goodwin.

On July 17, 1638 in her late 40s, Mary, her husband Joseph and their 8 children came to America aboard the ship Susan and Ellen. They were accompanied by another of Mary's sisters, Anna White and Anna's husband John Porter.

They landed in Boston. The following year, 1639, they moved to what was to become Windsor, Connecticut and were among the earliest settlers there. Mary's sister Anna and John Porter built a home near Mary and Joseph's on The Island in Windsor, so called because when the Connecticut River overflowed its banks the land became an island.

Mary and Joseph Loomis's house in Windsor still stands. It remained in the family over the generations and has been carefully restored and remodeled. Today it is one of the oldest houses in Connecticut.

Mary died on August 23, 1652 in Connecticut.

The Line of Robert and Bridget White became ancestors of USA Presidents Grant, Cleveland and Ford through their daughter Anna who married John Porter. Through the marriage of daughter Mary White and Joseph Loomis came the 13th USA President Millard Fillmore, Joseph Smith, founder of LDS church, and Roy O. Crutcher family.

Robert and Bridget were also ancestors of Reverend Solomon Williams, father of 'signer' William Willams and of author Richard Henry Dana through same daughter. --------------------
