m. Bef. 1641
Facts and Events
Great Migration lists children as Thomas, Sarah, Joseph, Elizabeth, Mary, Benjamin, Isaac, Martha, Mehitable, Abigail, with estimated births between 1641 and 1664. It also notes: : Savage, following Deane, says that the immigrant had a son Walter Woodworth who had children "Mary, b. 1658; Mehitable, 1662; and Ebenezer, 1664" [ Savage 4:648]. There is only evidence of one Walter Woodworth in early New England, as no record refers to Walter Sr. or Jr. The immigrant had daughters named Mary and Mehitable; no record for an Ebenezer is seen. Paul W. Prindle and Robert S. Wakefield have commented briefly on some errors in secondary sources regarding marriages in this family [ TAG 32:203, 61:140]. In arranging the children of Walter Woodworth, the assumption has been made that in his will he named his sons in birth order and his daughters in birth order. This permits a birth sequence for the children which is consistent with other known dates.
