    Judith Vassall daughter of William was born in England 1619; and died at Marshfield, Mass. She was buried 3 Apr. 1670; married Scituate 5 Nov. 1640 to Resolved White, son of William and susanna White.

    The parentage of Judith is clearly shown in a deed of 18 July 1657 in which she, as wife of Resolved White, sells land bequethed to her as daughter of "William Vassall heretofore of Scituate, and late of Barbados deceased, by a will dated 13 July 1655."

    It is said that she opposed the persectuion of Quakers by the court and influenced her husband's half-brother, Gov. Josiah Winslow, to refuse to sign the circular sent by the Mass. Bay Colony wanting their deaths. From then on no worse persecutions are found in the Old Colony Records.
