Family of Samuel VEAZIE and Mary TALMAGE
Hillman800 identifies Samuel's first wife as Mary Talmage. Sprague841 has "Mary (Talmage ? ...)" Both have Mary Talmage as the daughter of William and Elizabeth (Pierce?) Talmage. Both have the marriage date as about 1686, probably estimating it from the birthdate of their first child.
Samuel and "Mary" Veazie (various spellings of the surname) had children843 born in Boston, MA, prior to Nov 25, 1691, when Samuel married843 (apparently his second wife) Mary Vergoose, so first wife Mary is clearly not Mary Vergoose (Virgoose).
However, neither Hillman nor Sprague provide an indication linking the surname Talmage to the first wife of Samuel Veazie. Arthur White Talmadge4819, describing William Talmage (Talmidge, Talmadge), has Williams second wife Elizabeth Pierce. Talmadge lists two daughters, the second one (Mary), born Jan 13, 1668. Talmadge concludes that those children seem to have died without issue, noting that Ann Flack, neice of William, eventually became his sole hier.
Without further information, the surname of Samuel's first wife Mary appears to be a guess.
Samuel's will4268 mentions his father William, his uncle Dea. Samuel Tompson, son Samuel, mother Elinor French, kinswoman Christian Allison (dau of James of New York), and sisters Hannah Greenleaf, Elnor Paine, Abigail Thayer, Mehitable Veazie & Mercy Veazie alias Ruggles. Neither his daughter Mary nor his sister Elizabeth is mentioned.
The probate of the will4268 of "Samuel Veazie late of Boston Mariner dece'd" is dated Jan 7, 1696/7. His death843 is listed as "Samuel Vezey dyed Decr." in the (year) 1690 section of that reference. December would appear to be the correct month, but (whatever the reason for the 1690 listing) 1696 is assumed. N.B., as the date of probate was under the Gregorian calendar, Jan 1696/7 was preceded by Dec 1696.
Samuel's will provided that, should his son Samuel die before 21 years of age, Rev Samuel Willard, teacher of the Third Church, Boston, was to receive 10 pounds, and 20 pounds was to go to the maintenance and use of the free school in Braintree. In addition, his mother Elinor French was to receive 20 pounds, and property on Atkinson's lane was to go to Christian Allison; property at the south end of Boston, an orchard and 3 acres, and all remainder to go to his sisters: Hannah Greenleaf, Elinor Paine, Abigail Thayer, Mehitable Veazie & Mercy Veazie Ruggles, equally. Executors were to be his uncle Dea. Samuel Tompson and friend Samuel Marshall.
Mary Talmage was born843 Jan 13, 1667/8 to William and Eliza Talmage. She was bapt843 31 day 11 mo (Jan 31, 1667/8).
Mary apparently died prior to Nov 25, 1691, the date of Samuel's second marriage (to Mary Virgoose).
Child 1. Mary
Mary is not mentioned in her father's will4268, dated Nov 27, 1690. As her brother Samuel is mentioned, as well as other kin, it is assumed she died prior to that date.
Child 2. Samuel
Hillman800 references "Boston Churches" by (Robert J) Dunkle & (Ann Smith) Lainhart for "Saml Veezy died 18 Oct 1691," concluding that entry refers to the first son Samuel of Samuel and Mary (Talmage) Veazie.
