PALMER TINGLEY, of Ipswich, MA, born in 1614, miller, age 21 years, came from Kingston-on-Thames, England, sailed on ship Planter, from Port of London, April 8, 1635. He was in Ipswichin 1639, when he received a grant of eight acres in reward for his services in the war against the Pequot Indians in 16372. No record can be found of his death or marriage. He is claimed as the husband of Anna Fosdick, because he is the only person of the name Tingley living in the Colonies at that time of suitable age to be her husband. He brought with him a certificate from the minister of Kingston-on-Thames, stating that he was no subsidy man, and testifying to his conformity. He is supposed to have married, between 1635-1638, Anna or Hannah, daughter of Stephen Fosdick of Charlestown, MA, who came from Lincolnshire, England, to Charlestown, MA, in 1635 with his children and his second wife, Sarah Wetherell. Anna was born in 1615 and died in 1681. She married for her second husband, James Barrett, of Charlestown. She had by him seven children but only six are given here: James, Mary (Mrs. John Ross), Hannah (Mrs. John Scolley), Stephen, John and Sarah (Mrs. Simon Grover). Hannah Barrett's will states that she bequeathed to her grandchildren, Samuel and Thomas Tingley, and to her daughter Hannah Scolley's two children, etc. Thus she must have been Samuel Tingley's mother.
