Origin: Unknown. Migration: 1627 (in 1627 Plymouth cattle division). First Residence: Plymouth.
Birth date of 1597 guessed based on estimated date of marriage [Said to be by 1622, which was based on purchase of land by eldest son John 1643, implying birth of John by 1622. It appears to me that other factors were also taken into account, since otherwise, a birth by 1600 would be sufficient. -- Jrich ]
