PROPERTY OF RANDALL HAWLEY AND LINDA SELLET
Mary Mchard's father, William Mchard, signed a 1763 petition for Newburyport to be made its own town, separate from Newbury. Once the separation was accomplished, he became "Surveyor of High Way". Joseph Mchard, Mary's brother, was part of a company under the command of Captain Moses Nowell, marching to Lexington in 1775 after the Battle of Lexington and Concord. Extensive information about Mary Mchard's family is available in John J. Currier's "History of Newburyport".
Sotheby's is grateful for the research provided by the Mchard family by Emily Shafer, Newbury Historical Society.
