In an article on the James of London, the findings on Anthony are summarized: Anthoney Morse (5): Anthony was born about 1607 and married Ann Cox at St. Mary, Marlborough, Wiltshire, on 2 May 1629. This couple had three children baptized at Marlborough, in 1629, 1632 and 1634. Upon arrival, this family of five settled at Newbury [GM 2:5:159-67].

    ORIGIN: Marlborough, Wiltshire.
    MIGRATION: 1635 on the James (on or about 5 April 1635, "Anthony Morse" and "William Morse," of "Marlborough, shoemakers," were adjacent entries in the passenger list of the James, about to set sail from Southampton for New England [Drake's Founders 56]).
    OCCUPATION: Shoemaker [Drake's Founders 56]. On 30 March 1669, Percival Lowell and John Webster deposed about an event that took place "near Anthony Morsis shop" [EQC 4:127].
    CHURCH MEMBERSHIP: Admission to Newbury church prior to 25 May 1636 implied by freemanship. In the 1669 dispute between the Rev. Thomas Parker and Mr. Edward Woodman, Anthony Morse took the side of Woodman [EQC 4:359]. As a result, he was fined 13s. 6d. [EQC 4:366-67].
    FREEMAN: 25 May 1636 (as "Anthony Mosse," third in a sequence of three Newbury men) [MBCR 1:371].
    BIRTH: About 1607 (deposed on 31 March 1668 "aged about sixty years" [EQC 3:12]; deposed on 27 June 1674 "aged about sixty years" (this age is at odds with the other two, and should perhaps have been "about seventy") [EQC 5:330]; aged 72 in 1678 {EQC 7:156]), son of Anthony Morse {Pillsbury Anc 54-55].

    Savage stated that Anthony Morse was "said to have been born 9 May 1606" and to have had first wife Mary [Savage 3:237]. No evidence for either of these claims has been found.

The James of London (1635)
At least two ships called the James sailed in 1635 from England to New England. The passenger list for this one refers to the "James of London." It lists only the men and boys, but indicates that wives and children accompanied them.
Sailed: 26 Apr 1635 from London, England under Master William Cooper
Arrived: 3 Jun 1635 at Boston, Massachusetts.
