About Mary Ward

Johan Winsser:The sons of William Dyre, sometime Secretary and Attorney General of Rhode Island, and Mary (Barret) Dyre, the Quaker martyr hanged at Boston 1 June 1660, appear in many early New England records and their lives can be traced with relative ease. On the other hand, the only known surviving daughter of William & Mary has been identified from a single citation in the early Rhode Island records. On 25 July 1670 Samuel & Henry Dyre were charged by their father to post a $300 bond to ensure the inheritance of $100 due their eldest sister, Mary Dyre, and $40 to their half sister, Elizabeth Dyre (Rhode Island Land Records, 1648-1696 [Ms at the Rhode Island State Archives], 414)
