'Robin Bush found the baptisms of three children of a Robert Dibble at St John's, Glastonbury, Somersetshire, including a daughter "Frauncisca" baptized on 17 June 1609 [M&JCH 25:31]. This entry is tantalizing but by itself is not sufficient to make the identification. These baptisms as published seem to contain some inaccuracies, and further research is needed.' [GM 2:347]

Recovery (1634)
Also called the "Recovery of London" and sometimes listed as a 1633 ship, as the list of passengers was erroneously dated 31 March 1633 instead of 1634. Many of its passengers briefly settled in Dorchester and were among the first settlers to Windsor, Connecticut in 1635.
Sailed: 17 Apr 1634 from Weymouth, England under Gabriel Cornish
Arrived: Summer 1634 at Boston, Massachusetts Bay Colony
