About Mary Risley

wiki info about Richard Risley, mentioning Mary Arnold

Born prior to 1615 Died October, 1648 Hartford, Connecticut , USA Spouse(s) Mary Arnold *Richard Risley* (before 1615 - 1648) was an early Puritan settler in the Massachusetts Bay Colony and one of the founders of Hartford, Connecticut. Risley sailed from England on July 15, 1633, in the ship Griffen with Thomas Hooker , William Stone , John Cotton , and John Haynes . They arrived in Boston on September 4, 1633. In May 1636, Risley left Massachusetts with almost the entire company he had arrived with two and a half years earlier. They found John Winthrop to be too dictatorial. The group headed west through the wilderness, and after a month stopped in an area now occupied by the city of Hartford, Connecticut . Within the year, the group started a collective government to fight the Pequot War . By the next year, they had adopted what is now generally considered the first written constitution in Western history, the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut . The group eventually signed a treaty with the Indians for a tract of land and settled down. The present-day capitol building in Hartford sits on the original Risley land grant.^[3] <#cite_note-2> Risley died at Hockanum, Connecticut of typhoid in October 1648, leaving his wife and three children, ages two months to eight years.

Biography

Elizabeth Risely was born ca. 1613, a daughter possibly of Richard and Mary (Arnold) Risely and died on 28 Aug. 1687 in Duxbury.

Maltby cites the below as references for the above: Little Compton Families, Little Compton, RI, 1967 by Benjamin Franklin Wilbour p. 370, taken apparently from the Compendium of American Genealogy, Vol. 6, p. 785.

FHL Ancestral File for John Irish and Elizabeth Risely, submitted by Larry S. Christiansen, of Tullahoma, TN, Fae S. Cobbley, of American Fork, UT, Robert A. Valentine, of Overland Park, KS, Scott A. Tracy, of Payette, ID, and many others.

He then states: I have not been able to confirm her maiden name from reliable published sources or through original record research.

So I will be marking these parents as "Uncertain".

English Origins of the Washburn Families of Plymouth Colony and Hempstead, Long Island" byJohn Maltby - Phillip Washburn


Most researchers relying on primary sources (Jacobus, etc.) do not feel that her maiden name is known. She married first Richard Risley of Hockanum, and after his death she remarried William Hills. She remained with him until her death, which likely resulted from complications following the birth of her last child, Benoni, in 1655.
(f/g) Mary Risley Hills

  • Birth: unknown
  • Death: unknown

William Hills married (2) in late 1648, Mary (_____) Risley, widow of Richard Risley. She died about 1655, presumably at or shortly after the birth of her son Benoni.

They had 4 children:

  • Joseph,
  • Susannah Kilborn,
  • Benjamin, &
  • Benoni.

Jacobus included in his account of this family a listing of children who were treated on one day in 1658 by John Winthrop Junior, comprising children by all three of his wives, as well as children of his second and third wives by their first husbands. This list omits the daughter Susannah, who was in the original. The Winthrop medical records also contain a similar list from about a year earlier, and many other entries on this family, many, but not all, of which are incorporated in the present treatment.

These lists of children treated by Winthrop provide part of the evidence identifying the second and third wives of William Hills. In the probate of the estate of Richard Risley, on 7 December 1648, William Hills is required to post bond for the payment of legacies to the Risley children and to provide for their education, thus completing the identification of the second wife of William Hills. In the case of the third wife, we have the bequest in the will of ANDREW WARNER, on 18 June 1681, of ten shillings to "my daughter Hills"
