  3.   From genealogy of "Abner Wilcox & Lucy Eliza Hart Wilcox":

    ...just because the passengers of the Planter embarked with a blanket certificate from the minister of St. Albans, Hertfordshire, there is no reason to believe that William lived there. The records of the shire do not contain his name, and he was more likely from Derbyshire, the town of Biggin. If so, his father could have been the William Wilcoxson who married Anne Howdische 8 Feb 1575. Since William was a linen weaver, and Biggin was an area where flax was grown and woven into cloth, there is credibility to this theory.
