About Mary "Sarah" Cudworth

One thing that has been overlooked by the proponents of Mary Parker as James's wife who was known as Goodma Cudworth, is that Mary Sarah Goodman's aunt was Elizabeth Pye the ggg grandmother of Ebenezer Tripp who married Abigail Cudworth, James's granddaughter. The family connection makes it more likely James married Mary Sarah rather than whoever Mary Parker was. Abigail and Ebenezer would have been 3rd and 5th cousins. Also ignored is the evidence from John Calder that James arrived in Salem on the "Charles" in 1632, before Mary Parker was married. So much for The Great Migration.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 According The Great Migration -

" Robert Charles Anderson, The Great Migration, 1634-1635, vol. 2, pp. 249-58, contains the best genealogical account of James Cudworth. Anderson states that Cudworth's wife was Mary Parker, whom he m. at Northam, co. Devon, on 1 Feb. 1633/4 (p. 254); on p. 255, Anderson provides a full explanation of why he concludes that this marriage is that of the immigrant."

I believe the Stoughton you have is confused with the fact that James' step father's name was Stoughton. The Goodman, I read somewhere, may have come from a reference to her as Goody Cudworth. However, I have since found that during that time, many wives were called "Goody"...almost like Mrs..
