  • Name Mary AVERY  [1, 2
    • William's wife, Mary, descended from the leading families of Nobility and Royalty of England. She was a direct descendant of King Edward III of England, and of thirteen former kings, prior to King Edward's reign.

      She also was a member of the illustrious family of the Lords of De la Warr, who were connected with the early settlement of America. Sir Thomas West, 3d Lord De La Warr, and his brother, John, both were among the early Governors of the Virginia Colony. Her great-grandfather, General John Humphrey, a lawyer by profession, was one of the founders of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the Colony's first Deputy Governor. He was prominent in the foundation of Cambridge College, familiarly known today as Harvard University.

      Mary's father, Capt. Samuel Avery, was the son of Capt. James Avery and Joanna (Greenslade), and grandson of Christopher Avery, progenitor of the Avery family in New England. He was born Aug. 14, 1664, and on Oct. 25 1686, married Susannah Palmes, dau. of William Palmes and Ann (Humphrey), of Swanzey, Mass. Capt. Samuel Avery operated a large farm and was chosen moderator upon the legal organization of the town of Groton in 1704, and its first townsman at the first town meeting in 1705, an office which he held until his death, which occurred May 1, 1723. Records show that he is buried about a mile northeast of the Seth Williams' farm in Ledyard, Conn. on a farm of CH. Stanton. [1]
