Immediate Family

About Mary Ross (Goodenow)

[Mary Goodnow] was daughter of Thomas Goodnow, of Shasbury, England, one of the three brothers of that name who were prominent during the settling of Sudbury; Mary Goodnow was born August 25, 1640, and was killed by the Indians in 1707, according to the Sudbury History, though the Marlborough records say that it was Mary, daughter of Samuel Coodnow Sr. and his wife Mary, who were killed at that time.

In April 1657 she was convicted of fornication with James Ross whom she adamantly refused to marry (for a least a year). They did marry on 5 DEC 1658 in Sudbury, Middlesex, MA according to Sudbury Archives. Their eldest daughter Mary was born out of wedlock; 8 more children followed marriage.
