John Wheelwright, whose name is not seen, had Edward and a d. Mary,
wh. in the will of her gr.f. W. is nam. White, d. of Edward R. was of
York 1652, of Godfrey's council, to support Gorges' patent 1649, as
well as three yrs. preced. rep. for York 1653, and 12 yrs. succeed. last
in 1679, after wh. yr. no more rep. came from Maine under the old
chart. was in high esteem, either as republican or royalist, a magistr. of
Mass. 1681, and liv. as Farmer says, in 1683. But strong reason is
found in the will of Samuel Hutchinson and of Rev. John Wheelwright

Edward, prob. other ch. and perhaps had m. in Eng. a sis. of the w.
of W. for S. H. in his will, Apr. 1667, gives to E. R. by the descript. of
"eldest s. of sis. R." and it may fairly be assumed that the f. was then d.
At least, the magistr. of 1681, wh. was prob. the recorder of 1671, must
be judged, after Apr. 1667, to have m. that Sarah W. the unm. d. of
Rev. John, nam. in her uncle's will, and to be ment. in 1679 in the
will of her f. calling him "s.-in-law." Difficulty, however, attends this
hypothesis, because it is said, that Richard Crisp m. 1671, Sarah, that d.
of Rev. John Wheelwright. Still, R. may have m. the cousin, wid. of C.
