About Mary Everett

Mary Winch/Winche was born about 1619. She was enrolled as a passenger on the Francis from Ipswich on April 30, 1634, at age 15, as a member of the household of Rowland Stebbins [her uncle]. The family lived first in Roxbury, then moved to Springfield by 1639.[1]

Mary married Richard Everett in Springfield on June 29, 1643.[2] Since her death date is unknown, it is entered above as "after 1643", the year she was married.

Robert Charles Anderson speculates that Mary Winch Everett probably did not marry the same Richard Everett who lived in Dedham, Massachusetts. He believes that her husband may have moved to Jamaica on Long Island by the mid-1640s.[3] Part of his argument is that Richard Everett would have had to have traveled back and forth between Dedham and Springfield at least every year, and he is listed as being in Springfield on one occasion only a month after attending a meeting in Dedham.

However, Richard Everett was serving as William Pynchon's agent in Springfield property matters, and described himself as a trader. Under those circumstances, it makes sense that he would have traveled back and forth between Dedham and Springfield. The distance between the two towns is now about 90 miles via modern roads, but it is unclear how long or dangerous the trip would have been in the mid-seventeenth century. At that time, the Connecticut River may have afforded the most convenient travel route to the Massachusetts Bay area.

After their marriage, tradition holds that Richard and Mary settled permanently in Dedham. The Richard Everett of Dedham had one or two wives named Mary.[4] The Richard Everett of Jamaica, Queens, first was recorded there in 1656. He died intestate, and there is mention of children, but without names. His wife's name is not recorded.
