An American Family History

Maria Smith Collins

 

Maria (Mariah) Smith Collins was baptized on February 28, 1664 at the First Congregational Church in Ipswich, Essex County, Massachusetts. She was the daughter of John and Elizabeth Smith.

She married Joseph Collins on October 15, 1684 in Lynn. Their children and life together are described in the section on Joseph and Sarah Collins.

A Puritan woman's clothing consisted of underpants, stockings, linen, shift, petticoat, chemise (underblouse), bolster (a padded roll tied around the hips under the skirt), bodice, skirt, apron, coif (cap), outer gown and shoes. A woman might wear a ruff or bow and an apron. Cloaks were worn instead of coats. Women carried a small cloth draw-string bag or reticule and perhaps wore a chatelaine.
