About Margaret Worden

Peter did not marry Anne Farington or Mary___. He married Margaret Grice Wall, widow of Anthony Wall. Anthony Wall died on 24 April 1601 and Margaret was still a widow in 1603. By 1604 Peter and wife appear in a lease record. In 1607 there is a court action against Peter and his wife with regard to Margaret’s dower of the inheritance of her former husband Anthony Wall, deceased. Therefore they were married between February of 1603 and March of 1604 (see Wordens Past, page 834 for more on her birth and family).

Peter Worden married in 1603 or 1604 to Margaret (Grice) Wall, daughter of Thomas and Alice (Holdworth) Grice and widow of Anthony Wall.[2] It is thought that the marriage occurred between February 1603/4 (when Margaret is recorded as still a widow) and March 1604/5 (when Peter and Margaret are named together in a lease) in Lancashire. She brought to the marriage at least five Wall step-children: William, Thomas, John, Alice, and Mary.

No birth or baptism records have been found for their three known children, but all were living by about 1609.[3]

Those children are:

  1. Elizabeth, wife of Hugh Swansey;[2]
  2. Bridget;[2]
  3. Peter.[2]

Peter's wife, Margaret, died in 1612,[2] and daughters Elizabeth and Bridget also died in England prior to Peters' emigration.[3]
