This is proven by the 1653 will of Mary's sister Mrs Elizabeth Ensign which names Mary's daughter Sarah Underwood, not yet fifteen years old, as her niece. Mary had come with her mother on the Confidence in 1638 to America. Martha Wilder was the widow of Thomas Wilder who died 1634 at Shiplake, Oxford England. Martha had several children who also came to America before their mother and sister. One child, John Wilder, remained in England and had progeny. Martha has been said to have been the daughter of Griffin Higgs and his wife Sarah Payne, but the Higgs genealogy does not bear this out. There were marital alliances between Wilders and Higgs in England, but it looks doubtful that Martha was one of the Higgs daughters who married a Wilder. She is also said to have been an heiress of the Shiplake property.
