Indian Princess Mary


by Richie

Princess Mary was the daughter of a Pascataway Indian chief. Her father planned for her to one day be queen of her village. Soon after the first English settlers arrived in Maryland, the people in her village became friends with the English priest, Father White. As the Indians learned the ways of the white man, the Indian chief wanted his daughter to be educated. Father White arranged for her to be tutored with Margaret Brentís youngest brother, Giles. Years later, when both children were young adults, they were married.
