About Mary Eggleston

Mary Eggleston (Sanderson 1613 - before 1630), daughter of Bygod Eggleston and Mary Talcott, was born 6 January 1613 and baptised 19 January 1613/4 at St. Margaret's, Norwich, Norfolk, England. She died prior to her father's emigration with her three surviving brothers to the Colonies about 1630. She DID NOT marry Edward Saunderson (c1615 - c1645) - this is an error caused by confusing this Mary Eggleston, daughter of Bygod, with a Mary Egellston in the Colonies.

Robert Anderson, author of The Great Migration, disputes that she was the daughter of Bygot (Bagot, etc) Eggleston of Connecticut. Anderson says it “is unlikely for many reasons: the Mary baptized in Norwich in 1614 would have been thirty at the time of this marriage; Bigod did not name her or any of her children in his will; and the Egglestons of Windsor had no known connection with Watertown at this early date.”

Includes NotesNotes for Mary Eggleston:

These are items of interest found in the Eggleston Family site.I personally think daughter Mary probably died young and the Mary who married Edward Saunderson was someone else's daughter.However, it's always possible that Mary, who would have been abt 17 years old when her father and brothers left for America in 1630, wanted to stay in England as she had a romantic interest there.The Mary who married Edward Saunderson didn't marry Edward until 1645 in Watertown, MA.That would make Bygod's Mary 30 years old if she married Edward. ii.MARY EGGLESTON144, b.

Notes for MARY EGGLESTON: [z1.FTW] [Brøderbund WFT Vol. 5, Ed. 1, Tree #1093, Date of Import: Jan 1, 1997] Mary EGGLESTON was baptized on 4 Feb 1613 at St. Margaret's Church, Norwich, ENGLAND. She probably married Edward SAUNDERSON on 15 Oct 1645 atWatertown, MASSACHUSETTS.They had two children.Edward SAUNDERSON sold his house and land in Watertown, MASSACHUSETTS to William SHATTACK.Mary and Edward probably moved to Cambridge, MASSACHUSETTS soon after that.Records of their deaths have not been found, and they may have returned to ENGLAND. Src:Dr. Rosalie Eggleston ---------------------------------------------- Note:The Mary Eggleston, dau of Bygod, who was baptized 19 Jan 1613, Norwich, England, has been ignored by previous searchers.Evidently they believed she died in England.Dr. Rosalie Eggleston now raises the question, is she the Mary Eggleston who married Edward Saunderson, 1 Oct 1645 in Watertown, MASS? James Savagae, volume 4, p. 22, in his Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England, writes the following: "Edward (Saunderson), Watertown, m. 15 Oct 1645, Mary Egtleson, by Bond thot. to be eldest d. of Bigod, but she was not (for that d. was only 4 yrs. old), and prob. was his sis. had Jonathan, b. 15 Sept 1646; and Esther, call. strange. a young person, when bpt. 20 Mar 1687, Bond constr. the phrase to mean only unmarr.But he may have had other ch. bef. or aft. rem. to Cambridge and perhaps, went home.In the vicin. of W (Watertown?) num. descend. are found." "Jonathan (Saunderson), Watertown, s. of Edward, perhaps the only one, m. 24 Oct 1669, Abia, youngest d. of Thomas Bartlett of W. had Abia & Jonathan, tw. b. 28 Oct 1673;Thomas, 10 Mar 1675; John, 25 Mar 1677; Benjamin, 28 May 1679; Samuel, 28 May 1681; Edward, 3 Mar 1684; and Hannah, bapt. at W. 14 July 1689; was constable 1695, selectman, and deac. many years.His w. d. 13 Sept 1723, and he d. 3 Sept 1735." Clarence Almon Torrey, in his New England Marriages Prior to 1700, p. 649 says: "Edward (Saunderson), Watertown, m. 15 Oct 1645, Mary Eggleston;ch:Jonathan b. 15 (7) 1646." COMMENTS: (in "Bygod Eggleston, Englishman & Colonist") First, under the name Eggleston, all entries by Savage pertain to the descendants of Bigod Eggleston of Windsor, CT so he evidently did not find another family in New England with that name. Also, the four year old Mary, in 1645, dau of Bigod, was actually named Mercy/Marcy.If Edward Saunderson and his wife, Mary, did return to Enland, after Jonathan was married in 1669, this could explain why a daughter, Mary (Eggleston) Saunderson was not mentioned in Bigod's will in 1673. ------------------------------------------------------- More About MARY EGGLESTON: Fact 1: January 06, 1612/13, baptized151,152 Fact 2: bur.
