Immediate Family

About Mary Peasley

Mary Johnson was born in Trevor Issa, Wales and was the granddaughter of Edmund Johnson. He, along with six of his children, drowned while on a boating trip in Ponty Pool, Wales, in 1600. The only surviving child was Mary's father, John who was 12 years old when this happened. He had stayed home with his mother during this family outing.

John Johnson was a successful farmer in Wales. He had at least three children, Edmund, Mary and John. Edmund settled in Hampton, New Hampshire in 1635.

Mary married Joseph Peasley and settled in Haverhill, Mass, while John remained in England where he became a noted Quaker and a companion of George Fox.

Curator's note: I have not seen evidence that Mary's parents are known for certain. See Miner Descent (below). She is likely to be the sister of Edmund Johnson, but whether they are siblings to John ap John, the Quaker, that is not proven as far as I have read. Johnson is a very common name after all. However Edmund would have have the grandson, named for Edmund, so it may in fact be that John, Edmund, and Mary were siblings from Wales, children of John son of Edmund. Cutter (see below), who is the likely source for the story of Edmund drowning, is sometimes unreliable, so the story needs further investigation.
