In his will dated 30 Nov 1669, Thomas Hazard named his daughter Elizabeth, wife of George Lawton. (Austin, p 320). There are 55 family trees posted on rootsweb that show that Thomas' daughter, Elizabeth married Henry Brightman. Most of these also show her married to George Lawton. These trees appear to have been copied and uploaded to werelate.org. No documentation has been given on this site for Elizabeth Hazard, daughter of Thomas and Martha Hazard, being married to Henry Brightman. Accordingly, the marriage has been deleted.
