Disputed Lineages

Arthur Salway left a P.C.C. will dated 16 August 1613, proved 14 March 1616 [Reference: PCC, 26 Cope, found on FHL Microfilm 92065]. In his will, the testator mentions his deceased wife (not name given); his four sons, Humphrey (eldest son), Henry, Thomas, and Arthur Salwey; his daughter, Alice Salwey (presumably unmarried); his daughter, Judith Wythe; his son, Thomas Wythe; his son-in-law, Rowland Bradshawe, and various grandchildren, Arthur Salwey, Humphrey Salwey, and Alice Bradshaw. He also mentioned several godchildren, including Edward Salwey. There is no daughter named Joanna named in the will.

Elsewhere, there is a full treatment of the family of Arthur Salwey in Burke's Commoners, i 152-155. A list of eleven children is given there for Arthur Salwey, including the four sons named in his will, and seven daughters, all of whom married. Included in this list is a daughter, Jane, who married Sir Robert Parslow. There is no daughter, Joanna.

Given this information, it seems highly doubtful that Arthur Salwey was the father of Joanna, wife of the immigrant, Edward Woodman.
