About Mary Day

(A Mrs. Woodbridge) was born Nov. 1,1697, being ten years older than her husband, and was the daughter of John Merrick, born Dec. 9, 1658, and his wife, Mary Day, born Dec. 15, 1666, both of Springfield, and married Feb. 11, 1686—7. Mr. Merrick was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Tilley) Merrick, married Nov. 21, 1653 ; and Mrs. Mary (Day) Merrick was the daughter of Thomas and Sarah Day, all of Springfield. Thomas Merrick emigrated from Wales to Roxbury, and thence to Springfield with Mr. Pynchon hi 1636. He was the father of James Merrick, and doubtless of Thomas. The Days were early inhabitants of West Springfield, where the family still remains. Of the name of Tilley, we only know that Edward and John Tilley brought over families in the May Flower, and both died in Plymouth before the opening of Spring.
