    MARRIAGE: By 1643 to Persis Pierce, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth (_____) Pierce of Charlestown; her identity is deduced from the 1665 will of Thomas Pierce naming granddaughters Mary Bridge and Elizabeth Jefts [Tufts] living with him, and the Charlestown town record of 1646/7 calling William Bridges and Peter Tufts brothers [MPR Case #17583; ChTR 71]. Persis was born in England, probably about 1625, and came to Charlestown in 1634 with her family. "Peircis Bridges" was admitted to Charlestown church 30 November 1643 [ChChR 10]. After William Bridges's death, and no later than 6 May 1653, she had married, as his second wife, John Harrison of Boston, ropemaker, by whom she had ten more children [ChBOP 127]
