Nathaniel Joslin, s/o Thomas Josselyn and Rebecca Marlowe [sic, Rebecca Jude], b. London 12 Jun 1627, d. Marlborough 8 Apr 1694, m. 1656 Sarah King, d/o Thomas and Bridget King.
[Note: none of the sources below give this date, nor does the much newer article on Rebecca Jude (not cited here, in NEHGR 158:333), despite finding baptismal records for several of Rebecca's children. The other sources only use Nathaniel's age at emigration to estimate his birth. Given that this work includes some errors (such as naming the wife Rebecca Marlowe) and doesn't seem to be original research as much as a survey of other (unspecified) sources, further confirmation would be desirable.]

Joslin, Nathaniel Sr., April 3, 1694.
[Note: in Source:Nourse, Henry Stedman. Birth, Marriage, and Death Register, Church Records and Epitaphs of Lancaster, Massachusetts, 1643-1850, p. 20, in a section entitled "Deaths of Sundry Early Proprietors and Residents of Lancaster as Attested by Wills, Inventories, Diaries, Records of Other Towns, Et Cetera", the death date for Nathaniel is given as 8 Apr 1694. The Lancaster records were published in 1890, about 18 years before the Marlborough records, so presumably, the compiler was using the original records to collect this information. The 8 Apr 1694 date seems to be cited in all the sources above, and in addition, by a NEHGR article, p. 2:306 (1848), which, like the Lancaster records, would have predated the published Marlborough VRs (in this case by about 60 years) and probably would have needed to refer to the original records. Thus, the date given here, 3 Apr 1694, appears to be a transcription error.]
