Mary Cudworth was born in Scituate, MA and baptized 23 July 1637. She
should have been named after her mother, and perhaps was, since the first
boy James, was named after his father. The naming of children in those
extremely religious days approached a hallowed tradition, in most pilgrim
families. If the family was large enough, and it seldom was under an
average of six, the names of the father, and his father and mother, and
the mother, and her father and mother, had to be provided for, as a mark
of filial respect. Not the whole six, to be sure, but a name here and
there with an uncle, or aunt to complete the compliment. This Mary could
have been named after Mary Machell, the mother of James, who had
reciently died in England.
