Birth

Humphrey's birth date is estimated as about 1636 by CollacottS1, while Barber and DeloreyS2 give an estimated birth date of 1637. Collacott gives Barbados as Humphrey's birth place, based on the belief that Humphrey's mother was the widow Bridget Parsons and that she married William Varney in Barbados. However the assumption that Bridget was the widow of Jeffery Parson's father has been disprovenS3 and there is no reason to believe that Humphrey's parents, William and Bridget Vareny, were ever in Barbados.
