  • Notes 
    • She is not the Mary Parker who was judicially murdered in 1692 during the Salem witch mania, as implied on her sketchy Wikitree page and elsewhere. That Mary Parker was a daughter of John Ayre.

      Her father, Edmund Parker of Roxbury, was an original proprietor of Lancaster in 1654. In that year, Lancaster records show the birth of twins Mercy (presumably Mary) & Esther, twins, on 28 Oct 1654 to "Edmund Parker and Elizabeth his wife", and the birth of Deborah to the same parents on 6 Jan 1656. Roxbury records show the baptism, there, of all three of these daughters (Mary is called Mary this time), all called daughters of Edmund Parker, on the same day, 22 Jun 1656.
