Margaret Northend Palmer was born 30 March 1620 in East Riding, Yorkshire, England to John Northend (1580-1625) and Elizabeth Cole (1588-1625) and died 20 February 1706 Rowley, Essex County, Massachusetts of unspecified causes. She married John Palmer (1625-1695) 14 May 1650 in Rowley, Essex County, Massachusetts.

John Palmer was born in 1623 as in 1693 he deposed of land and said that he was 70. He was born in England, but his parents, his birth, the events of his early life, and his coming to America are unknown to early historians and have not been found in early records of New England. One source states that he was of Boston in 1640 where he was made a freeman 2 April 1640. His stay in Boston must not have been long for he is in Rowley, Massachusetts by 1643 when he is said to be a carpenter by trade and that he had become a proprietor in Rowley by that year.
