Mary Peters (17 April 1813 – 29 July 1856) was a British hymn writer.
Mary Bowly was born in Cirencester in 1813 to Richard and Mary Bowly. She married John McWilliam Peters who was the vicar of Quenington and then Langford. Peters gave her efforts to writing and she wrote her hymns by the time she was thirty. She created a large history in seven volumes from the "point of creation to the start of Queen Victoria's reign", but her notability comes from her hymns.
