    "May 25th 1638. The Exa[m]i[n]at[i]on of RICHARD MAN: of Ingram [Ingham] in Norff Tayler aged about 23 yeares, REBECCA: his wife aged about 30 years is desireous to goe into Holland to serve und[e]r the States" [citing "Transcript of Three Registers of Passengers from Great Yarmouth to Holland and New England 1637-1639" by Charles Boardman Jewson]. Notes marriage of Richard Man and Rebecca Short on 21 Jul 1637 is found in Parish Registers of St. Julian's, Norwich, Norfolk, FHL film 993893. [Commentary in article suggests even if age on examination is wrong (probable since woman seldom that much older than her husband), a person married in 1637 is a stretch to be a woman who had a child in 1666 and nine-year gap until first child "is disturbing". Thus, further work is needed, probably in Holland, to determine if this is the Richard Mann who came to Scituate or not.]
