  3. Source:Vital records of Salem, Massachusetts, to the end of the year 1849 (228580), p. 1:145, shows two possible John Buttolphs born in Salem:
    Buttolph, John, s. John and Hana (Gardner), [born] 11 : 7 m : 1664. CT. R. [11 Sep 1664]
    Buttolph, John, s. George and Hanna, [born] Oct. 15, 1667. CT. R.
    But neither is a good match. The second is 5 years off the birth calculated from his age at death, and the first one died young according to another record on p. 5:130:
    Buttolph, John, s. John and Hana (Gardner), [died] Apr. 23, 1665. CT. R.
    The Driver Family, p. 295, "said to be son of John and Hannah (Gardner) Buttolph", and the two children of his first marriage are named John and Hannah, so one is tempted to say John's parents are John and Hannah (Gardner) Buttolph, but that requires that two mistakes were made here:
    1. The second birth record listed the father George when it should have said John
    2. The age at death was incorrect, and was only 45, not 51.
    More evidence is needed before this many mistakes can be overlooked.
