Mary Hollis was born in 1654, and baptised at Rotherham in Yorkshire on 13 February 1654. She was the daughter of Thomas Hollis 1602-1664 of Rotherham and named after her mother, his second wife Mary. Nothing more is known of her, not even her maiden surname. Her father was a blacksmith. He died in 1664 and was buried at Rotherham on 4 February 1654 (by modern reckoning).

She was married to William Gould 1655-1725 of Pilsbury Grange in about 1675. She brought 120 guineas (£126) as her dowry. The place of the marriage is unknown but was probably Rotherham.

They had the following children:

Elizabeth Gould 1676-1753
William Gould 1677-1772
Lidia Gould
Joseph Gould 1685-1760
Sarah Gould 1689-1772
Hannah Gould 1692-1756
Thomas Gould 1695-1763
John Gould 1700-1725

Although she had died by then, her children were left a legacy in the Will of her brother Thomas Hollis 1634-1718.

She died on 30 April 1713 at Crowdecote, and was buried at Hartington in Derbyshire on 2 May 1713. .
