An abstract appears in Henry F. Waters, Genealogical Gleanings in England: Abstracts of Wills Relating to Early American Families, with Genealogical Notes and Pedigrees Constructed from the Wills and Other Documents, 2 vols. (1907; reprint, Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1981), 2:1015,
and a full transcript in John Anderson Brayton,
From One Boston to Another: Notes on the Ancestry of Mary (Jackson) Woodward, New England Historical and Genealogical Register 158 (2004): 213-27, at 214.
The relatively modest subtitle of Braytons work belies its standing as the most complete account of Marys ancestry to date.
