was born in 1610. She married Peter Worden
. Mary Sears left a will on 9 January 1679. She wrote a codicil on 24 July 1680. She died in 1687. Helen Dunton Gilchrest calls her, withut justification, "Mary Sears Worden," and states she "was probably related to Richard Sears, the Pilgrim, but she is not listed as one of his children. She may have been his sister. The Worden property adjoined that of Richard Sears. Mary's will was witnessed by two of Richard's sons. The inventory was taken by another of his sons." Others believe that she was a Winslow; several references state (without citing the basis for the claim) that her daughter, Mercy, and her husband Kenelm Winslow were cousins. If Kenelm and Mercy were first cousins, Mary would have to be a daughter of Edward Winslow. A few printed references say that Mary's middle name was Magdalene; if so this supports the Winslow theory for the second wife of Edward Winslow was Magdalene Oliver.
