It was Marie, wife of John Poulter, who ventured into the British Colonies after he husband had died. This was sometime between his death and 1654 when her daughter Elizabeth married Jonathan Danforth. Along with her were her son, John, and daughter Elizabeth.
Marie married twice again in the Americas. First to Sergt. John Parker. John was a resident at Woburn in 1649 and later at Billerica while it was an outlying part of Cambridge. John Parker became an important citizen in Billerica. He was the towns first tax collector, he built the first meeting house and was the agent of the town in 1656-1658 and 1661-1662 in locating and disposing of two large land grants. In the town records, his name is associated with almost every public project until his death in 14 Jun 1667. In these records he is often called the "father-in-law" of Jonathan Danforth, as is Jonathan was often called the "son-in-law" of John Parker.
Marie married her third and last husband, 16 April 1674, at Billercia, Thomas Chamberlain of Chelmsford. They spent the next eighteen years of her life together in Chelmsford, then died on the 7th or 8th Feb 1693 at age eighty-eight. Even though her death took place in Chelmsford, her son-in-law, Jonathan Danforth, recorded it in the vital records of Billerica.
