    [HOLYOKE] "EDWARD, Lynn 1636, or 7, was from Tamworth, Co. Stafford, on the edge of Warwicksh. and with prefix of respect adm. freem. 14 Mar. 1639, liv. most of his days in that pt. of Boston call. Rumney Marsh, since Chelsea, but chos. perhaps rep. for sev. towns betw. the time when he was serv. for Lynn 1639-48 and his d. as for Springfield 1650 and after, being so honored at his d. This, I suppose, with the fact of his owning est. there led to the opinion, that he had rem. thither wh. is prob. an error. He d. 4 May 1660, leav. only s. Elizur, and ds. Elizabeth wh. m. George Keysar; Ann, wh. m. 17 Oct. 1643, lieut. Thomas Putnam; Mary, wh. m. 10 Feb. 1647, John Tuttle of Boston; Susanna, wh. m. 12 Sept. 1656, Michael Martin; and Sarah, wh. m. John Andrews. His w. was Prudence, d. of Rev. John Stockton of Kinholt, m. 18 June 1612, by wh. bef. he came hither, he had, also, Edward, wh. d. 30 Dec. 1631, in 13th yr. and John, wh. also d. in Eng. 5 Mar. 1635. His will may be read in Geneal. Reg. IX. 345. It is curious in detail; but distorts the good name Putnam of one of the s.-in-law, into an impossible Prenam. In the will of Richard, f. of Ann Hathaway, w. of the immort. Shakespeare, made 1 Sept. 1581 at Stratford, he names Edward Hollyocke, as to him was due 20 shillings for wood; but tho. Warwicksh. and Staffordsh. adj. it must be large 30 ms. from Stratford to Tamworth, so that, if Edward were f. of our Edward, he had earlier, without doubt, liv. nearer London."
