    MARRIAGE: By about 1634 Edith Laskin, born about 1612 (deposed November Term, 1672, aged "about sixty years" [EQC 5:112]), daughter of Hugh Laskin. She died after 27 March 1677 [EPR 127-28].

    Hugh Laskin entry, accessed 26 May 2004, revises the marriage date estimated in the earlier Henry Herrick sketch.

    "In our earlier treatment of Henry Herrick [GMB 2:910-14], we estimated his date of marriage to Edith Laskin as "about 1634." This in turn was based on the estimated date of birth of the proposed eldest child of this couple, son Thomas. Further examination of this son shows that we have no clear evidence that he was born this early, or was the eldest. Based on the evidence in hand, he could well have been born some years later. On that basis, we suggest a marriage date for Henry Herrick and Edith Laskin of 1636, which would be consistent with 1635 as an arrival date for the Laskin family."
