Parish of Halifax, Yorkshire, England: Martha, of Abraham Shaw, Northow'm Baptized Janry 6th, 1632.
↑ No death record for Martha Vinson is found in Weymouth deaths. Of course, the death of a married woman would be under her married name, hence dependent on the accuracy of the marriage. The marriage appears to come from Chamberlain's History of Weymouth, p. 4:611, where he says Martha m. "Thomas Vinson of Weymouth". (And of course it gets asserted in other works without evidence, presumably based on Chamberlain's authority.) I can find no marriage record, no births of children, nor a death of either alleged spouse. In the Vinson section of Chamberlain's book, there are no entries until John who arrives in the 1690s, so no notice of this alleged Thomas Vinson of Weymouth. There is a family in Gloucester, but their son Thomas wasn't born until 1675 or thereabouts. Martha's father died when she was young and she is still "Martha Shawe" in his will. In short, evidence of Martha's existence after the date of the will of her father seems completely lacking.
