Notes for Amaziah Delano:
He was private in Capt. Gray's Co., in Col. Mitchell's Regt., from North Yarmouth, July 7, 1779, two and one half months; private in Capt. Pride's Co., in Col. Price's Regt., enlisted Falmouth, Me., April 18, 1780; served in the Penobscot expedition, seven months and eighteen days.

The 1790 US Census for Cumberland County, Maine lists on page 19, "Ameziah Delano." The numbers of household members in the census age ranges are: 01-03-02-00-00. The first number (01) is the number of free white males of sixteen years and older (Amaziah, the father); The second number (03) is the number of free white males under sixteen (Stephen, William, and Enos); the third number (02) is number of free white females (Margaret, the mother, and Asenath, the daughter); the fourth number (00) is the number of slaves; the fifth number (00) is the number of other persons.

The 1820 US Census for Livington, York, Maine lists an Enos Delano and an Amaziah Delano on page 516.

=================================================
From Delano Revolutionary War Records (National Archives): Amaziah, b. November 1778 (sic) m. 12 Jan 1796; d. 22 October 1850 at Gray ME. His widow, Betsey m. 9 Feb 1852 John Leighton, who d. 19 November 1854. In 1858 she was living in Cumberland County, ME.

Note that this does not match with the Delano Gen., nor is it possible that he was born in 1778 and fought in the Revolutionary War! In the Mayflower Descendant #38 they make note of this discrepany (and make light of it as well). Amaziah did, indeed, make claim that he was born 1778 - and just below where his service is stated as 1779-1780!

Notes for Abraham Samson:
ABRAHAM SAMSON was born at Duxbury, about 1686 (age at death); died at Duxbury, 16 November 1775, age 89 (\TR, 413).

He married first about 1712, PENELOPE SAMSON, daughter of James Samson and his wife Hannah (-) Wait; born probably at Dartmouth, say about 1686 (fifth child of parents who were married by 1679); died after November 1727 (when she signed receipt); a descendant of Mayflower passenger Henry Samson (MFIP Samson, #7, #29; MD, 23:174). The will of James Samson of Dartmouth, dated 10 January 1715/6, mentions daughter "Penelopy." On 23 November 1727 Abraham Samson and Penelope Samson of Duxbury signed a receipt for the f20 legacy from James Samson's will (MD, 6:188).

He married second, MARY ----, who died after 22 May 1764 (husband's will).

On 31 January 1709[/10], Abraham Samson, Sr., of Duxbury made a deed of gift to his son Abraham for half of all his upland near Powder Point with "my former dwelling house." The will of Abraham Samson (Sr.) of Duxborough, husbandman, dated 2 August 1725, gives son Abraham one third of the residue of upland and meadow after his wife's death provided Abraham give up that half of his upland given him by deed with his brothers Miles and Ebenezer. If he refused, Miles and Ebenezer would have the other half of the upland and all of the meadow and housing on said land. Abraham also received a small gun (Plymouth Co PR, #17,433, 5:477-80).

When the town of Duxbury was laying out the second division of common lands in February 1711/2, Benoni Delanoe and Abram Samson Jun. demanded forty acres each in the first division. Abraham Samson Senr protested against the town's vote excluding his son, but Joseph Mallinson protested against "the young men's having any part in the above said second division." Abraham was appointed a culler of fish for Duxbury in May 1729, and was elected to serve on the petit jury in 1735. He was elected to serve as constable of Duxbury in 1748 but "by reason of Indisposition he is incapble of Serving" and the Court of General Sessions excused him from serving. The town voted not to elect another constable in his place (Duxbury Town Rec, 213, 246, 292; Plymouth Co CtRecs, 2:96, 160, 255).

The will of Abraham Samson of Duxbury, yeoman, dated 22 May 1764, mentions wife Mary (one third of the moveable estate and one third of the real estate); son Abraham (a gun and the remainder of the real and personal estate); son Stephen (L5 "provided he shall bring in no bill or Demand on my Estate for Service Done for me in my life time"); son Henry (4 acres including the land given him to set his house on and the same provision as with son Stephen); daughter Hannah Holmes (one fifth of the moveable estate); daughter Rebecca Blackmore (5 shillings besides what she has received); daughter Penelopy Samson (one fifth of the moveable estate and the "priviledge" of living in the dwelling house and a cow, provided Abraham does not sell the house and if he does, she is to get £13:6:8); granddaughter Rhoda Chandler wife of Thomas (one fifth of the moveable estate); and 8 [unnamed] grandchildren, children of daughter Ruth Delano, late wife of Amaziah (10 shilling divided among them). He named Jonathan Peterson executor, but he died and a codicil was added 30 May 1765 to name Joseph Soul the executor. The inventory taken on 11 August 1776 included the homestead farm, "blew reaver meadow," and "Pine hill meadow and flat agineing" (Plymouth Co PR, #17,434).

Alexander Standish and 139. Sarah Alden.

Notes for Lorah Standish:
LORAH STANDISH was born presumably at Duxbury, say about 1660 (married by early 1680's); died after 2 August 1725 (husband's will).

She married about 1680 (first child born about 1682), ABRAHAM SAMSON, son of Abraham and (----) Sampson (TAG, 63:209), born about 1658 (age at death); died between 2 August 1725 and 4 September 1727 (will and probate), aged nearly 70 years (Giles Mem, 379). On 15 July 1679 Abraham Samson, Sr., inhabitant of Duxburough, planter, made a deed of gift to his son Abraham Samson [no residence] for all of his lands in Duxbury except two acres at Great Wood Island in the Great Marsh. The land included three acres on the west side of Lt. Nash, three acres on the north side of Bluefish River, and a tract at the "glads" bounded east by Joseph Howland, south by John Soule, north by the arm of the bay, and west by Lt. Nash, the "premises to be entered upon at the day of my death and if I do leave a widdow behind me she is to have her just due out of the abovesaid lands." On 21 February 1684 Abraham Samson, Sr., of Duxborough, carpenter, sold for £5 to Abraham Samson of the same town, boatman, "marsh land at Great Wood Island... after my death" (Plymouth Co LR, 4:55-56; TAG, 63:208).

On 18 February 1685 the land of Edward Southworth was surveyed by John Soule, Abraham Samson, Junr, and Thomas Delano. Abraham continued to serve on numerous committees to lay out land in Duxbury through 1706. The town meeting of February 1686 gave Abraham Samson Junior liberty to improve three acres on the south side of the way that goes to Bluefish River; and in May 1696 Abraham Sampson (no longer designated as "Jr.") was granted thirty acres on the west side of South River that had formerly been given to Peter West. In 1712 when the Duxbury proprietors were laying out the second division of common lands, his son Abraham Samson, Junr, demanded that he should have had forty acres from the first division, and Abraham, Sr., entered his own demand on his son's behalf. At the town meeting in 1718 Abraham Samson, Senor, was given liberty to make a fence across the highway from the old landing place as long as he provided a gate. On 23 March 1723/4 Abraham Samson, Senor, and Christopher Wadsworth, both of Duxborough, yeomen, as equal owners of the 45th and 146th lots in the second division of upland of Duxbury and Pembroke made in 1713, agreed to divide the lots with Samson to receive part of the 45th lot on the easterly side of the South River totalling 29½ acres (Duxbury Town Rec, 57-58, 67-68, 71-72, 78, 127-29, 175, 186, 213, 219, 237).

The will of Alexander Standish, made 21 February 1701/2, gives his daughter Lorah the wife of Abraham Samson five shillings. On 10 August 1702 Abraham Samson on behalf of himself and his wife with three other sons-in-law and daughters of Alexander Standish contested the will stating that Standish had promised to remember his daughters by his first wife in his will but had left them little or nothing. When the will was proved despite their protest, they petitioned on 4 February 1702/3 to divide a piece of meadow land not described in the will. Because the parcel could not be divided, it was awarded to Miles Standish who was ordered to pay each of his five sisters £10 (Plymouth Co PR, #19,152; MD, 12:99-112, 176-85).

On 24 December 1709 (acknowledged 31 January 1709/10, recorded 25 May 1722), Abraham Samson, Sr., of Duxbury made a deed of gift to his son Abraham [no residence given] for half of all his upland near Powder Point with "my former dwelling house" (Plymouth Co LR, 16:44).

The will of Abraham Samson of Duxborough, husbandman, was dated 2 August 1725 and was proved on 4 September 1727. To his wife Lorah, he left his dwelling house and his land (except what he gave to his son Nathaniel). To his son Nathaniel, the lot of land that he lived on in Duxborough. To his sons Abraham, Miles, and Ebenezer, he gave all his upland and meadow after his wife's decease provided that Abraham gives up that half of his upland given him by deed with his brothers Miles and Ebenezer; if he refuses, then Miles and Ebenezer to have the other half of the upland and all his meadow. His son Abraham was also to have his small gun, Miles his long gun, and Ebenezer his muskett and cutlass. To his daughter Rebecca, he left one feather bed and to daughter Grace, one feather bed and one cow; and his daughters Rebecca, Sarah, and Grace were to share the moveable estate after his wife's death (Plymouth Co PR, #17,433, 5:477-80).

       On 17 January 1653/4, Phillip Delano of Duxburow and Mary his wife sold to John Churchill and Bennaiah Pratt the house and land near Plymouth "sometimes the house and land of William Pontus and James Glasse both deceased" [MD 5:92, citing PCLR 2:1:93]. On 17 January 1653, Phillip Delano of Duxburrow and Mary his wife sold to John Church~ill of Plymouth a parcel of meadow sometimes the meadow of William Pontus and James Glasse deceased, being about an acre and a half [MD 5:92-93, citing PCLR 2:1:93].
       On 3 December 1659, Phillip Delano Sr. with the consent of Mary his wife sold one half his purchase lands at Coaksett or Cushena or both to William Earle [MD 11:249, citing PCLR 2:2:41]. On 13 December 1660 "Phillip Delanoy of Duxburrow ... with the consent of my wife" sold to Nicholas Byram of Weymouth "my whole right of lands in the town of Bridgewater ... viz: a full and complete purchase of uplands, meadows and swamps that is or shall be laid out or divided or remain in common" [PCLR 3:25]. On 5 June 1667 Philip Delano of Duxbury, husbandman, sold to John Russell Sr. of Dartmouth, yeoman, one-half share of the lands at Dartmouth "granted unto the said Phillip Delano ... as a purchaser or old comer" [PCLR 3:83].
       On 11 April 1674 Philip Delano Sr. of Duxbury, planter, in consideration of "love and natural affection" granted "unto my true and natural son John Delano my lot of five and twenty acres at Namassakett lying upon Teticutt River in Middleborough with three acres of upland lying in Duxburrow" [PCLR 3:330]. On the same day Philip Delano Sr. of Duxbury, planter, granted to "Thomas Delano his true and natural son the one-half of his hundred acre lot at Namassakett in the town of Middleborough, the lot to be divided betwixt his brother and him, Phillip Delano and him," also one-half the meadow land in Middleborough, one-half of five acres of meadow land at the beach lying on the southside of Plymouth and three acres of meadow lying at the Mill River" [PCLR 3:331].

       On 5 July 1682 a comparison was made between two memoranda purporting to reflect the intent of Philip Delano for the disposal of his estate, one dated 22 August 1681, the other "now drawn" 5 July 1682. The merged intent was agreed to mean, to "his three eldest [sons] and each of [them] know their proportions, and John hath twenty five acres more at Namassakett"' to Samuel a horse, cow, two steers, chain and cart; to Jane one cow and heifer; to Rebeckah a yearling heifer; his wife a cow and free use of one third of the orchard and land during her life; to his three sons Phillip Thomas and Samuel a yoke of old oxen to improve "and when their service is done, to revert wholly to Phillip and Thomas"; Thomas executor; saw and wedges to Samuel; 5s. each to his "seven eldest children, of which seven, two, viz, Phillip and Thomas, have received their proportions"; at wife's death all moveables to his four youngest children [MD 11:250-51, citing PCPR 4:2:120].

       (2) By 17 January 1653[/4] Mary (Pontus) Glass, born by 1622, daughter of William Pontus ([MD 5:92]; "... Phillip Delanoy, who was then present, and with the consent of Mary, his wife, the other daughter of the said William Pontus" 3 May 1664 [PCR 4:58]), and widow of James Glass ("Phillp Delano Senr. aged 74 years or there about testifieth and saith before he married Mary Glass the relict of James Glass deceased...," 3 March 1676/7 [MD 14:64, citing PCLR 6:93]).
CHILDREN:
       With first wife
       i       MARY, b. say 1635; m. Plymouth 29 November 1655 Jonathan Dunham [PCR 8:17]; she d. soon and had no children [TAG 36:243-49].
       ii       PHILIP, b. say 1637; m. say 1670 Elizabeth Sampson, daughter of Abraham and _____ (Nash) Sampson (called Elizabeth Delano in her grandfather Nash's will [NEHGR 52:76; TAG 15:165-67]).
       iii       THOMAS, b. say 1639; m. by 1667 Rebecca Alden, daughter of JOHN ALDEN ("Thomas Delanoy, and his now wife, for committing carnal copulation before marriage, fined" at October Court, 1667 [PCR 8:122]).
       iv       ESTHER, b. say 1641; on 1 October 1661 Abraham Pierce Jr. confessed that he had falsely accused "Rebeckah Alden and Hester Delanoy" of being pregnant [PCR 4:7]; probably m. (1) by about 1670 Samuel Samson, son of Abraham and _____ (Nash) Samson, and if so m. (2) by 1679 John Soule [Muriel Curtis Cushing, Philip Delano of the "Fortune" 1621 ... (Plymouth 1999), pp. 4-5 and arguments presented there].
       v       JOHN, b. say 1644; m. by about 1679 Mary Weston, daughter of Edmund Weston of Duxbury [NGSQ 71:41-43].
       vi       JONATHAN, b. about 1648 (d. Dartmouth 28 December 1720 in 73rd year); m. Dartmouth 28 February 1677/8 Mercy Warren, daughter of Nathaniel Warren and granddaughter of RICHARD WARREN [MFIP Warren 35-36].
       With second wife
       vii       JANE, b. say 1655; living 1682 (settlement of her father's estate); no further record.
       viii       REBECCA, b. about 1657 (d. Plymouth 7 April 1709 "aged 52 years" [Bradford Kingman, Epitaphs from Burial Hill, Plymouth, Massachusetts (Brookline 1892), p. 9]); m. Plymouth 28 December 1686 John Churchill [PVR 85].
       ix       SAMUEL, b. say 1659 [adult 1682]; m. by 1679 Elizabeth Standish, daughter of Alexander Standish (in his will of 21 February 1701/2 Alexander named "my daughter Elizabeth Delano the wife of Samuel Delano" [MD 12:101]).
ASSOCIATIONS: In the land division of 1623, MOSES SIMONSON was joined with PHILIP DELANO in a grant of land, suggesting that they may both have come from Leiden. Also in the land division of 1623, and in the tax lists of 1633 and 1634, EDWARD BUMPAS is adjacent to PHILIP DELANO. The two men at a later date held adjacent land [PCR 1:59, 66, 67]. The last three sons of Bumpas were Philip, Thomas and Samuel, names also used by Delano. These items suggest that Edward Bumpas came from Leiden with Delano in 1621, and that the two may have had some association there before that date.

COMMENTS: In a deposition of 1641 "Phillip De Lanoe of Duxbury planter" stated that he was "aged about thirty-six years"; he at that time owned a boat which he used in catching mackerel [Lechford 420].
       On 3 March 1676/7 "Phillp Delano Senr" gave his age as "74 years or there about" [MD 14:64, citing PCLR 6:93].
       Some sources claim that Philip Delano lived in Middleborough and Bridgewater, but this merely misinterprets his holdings of lands granted in those locations.
       The number of children born to Philip Delano and their allocation between his two wives remains a vexed problem, due to the vagueness of his "will" and the almost total lack of chronological checkpoints among his children and grandchildren. In the settlement of his estate six children are identified by name: Philip, Thomas, John, Samuel, Jane and Rebecca [MD 11:250-51]. Several additional statements assist in our analysis: Samuel was the "only son to the relict of the deceased"; house and land given to "his 3 eldest ... and John hath 25 acres more at Namassakett"; five shillings apiece to "his seven eldest"; and at wife's death moveables to "his 4 youngest children."
       Three additional names are known from other records: Mary (who predeceased her father, without leaving issue), Esther and Jonathan. The bequest to the "seven eldest children" implies eight or more living in 1682, and the six named in the agreement, with Jonathan and Esther added, brings us to this number.

Priscilla Mullins, born Bet. 1600 - 1605 in Dorking, Surrey, England/Dorking, England (Source: Esther Littleford Woodworth-Barnes, Mayflower Families, Vol. 16, Part 1 - Family of John Alden, (General Society of Mayflower Descendants, Plymouth Massachusetts, 1999), p. 17.); died Aft. 1650 in Duxbury, Massachusetts (Source: Esther Littleford Woodworth-Barnes, Mayflower Families, Vol. 16, Part 1 - Family of John Alden, (General Society of Mayflower Descendants, Plymouth Massachusetts, 1999), p. 20.). She was the daughter of 262. William Mullins and 263. Alice.

Notes for John Alden:
John Alden was hired for a cooper, at South-Hampton, wher the ship victuled; and being a hopfull young man, was much desired, but left to his owne liking to go or stay when he came here; but he stayed, and maryed here (Bradford's History, 443; MD, 1:228).

On 11 November 1620 John Alden joined with the other free adult male passengers of the Mayflower to sign the Compact whereby they agreed to make and abide by their own laws (Bradford's History, 75; New Englands Memorial, 15-16).
This is all that is known about the origins of John Alden. Efforts to locate his birthplace and parentage have so far been inconclusive. Although he joined the Mayflower at Southampton, co. Hampshire, England, no records have been found of John in Southampton, and he was not necessarily a native of that place.
Several theories regarding the origins of John Alden were discussed in The Mayflower Descendant, 39:111-121 and 40:133-136. Of these theories, the one with the most prospects is that of the Harwich Alden family. A John Alden of Harwich married the daughter of William Russell, a merchant of that town. When William Russell wrote his will on 1 August 1586, he mentions his son-in-law John Alden who was at that time in captivity in Spain (these were the years just before the Spanish Armada when English and Spanish ships competed for rule of the seas). He also mentions a number of children of John Alden. Interpretation of Russell's will seems to indicate that the captured John Alden had two sons named John. John "the elder" was probably the child of an earlier, unknown, first wife; and John "the younger" was the child of William Russell's daughter. Other children of the captured John Alden were Peter, William, and Thomas. Any of these sons could have been the father of John Alden of the Mayflower.
The most appealing facet of the Harwich theory is that William Russell's son Robert, brother of the Elizabeth Russell who married the captured John Alden, married the widowed mother of Captain Christopher Jones of the Mayflower. Thus, if this theory is correct, Capt. Jones would have been the step-son of our John Alden's great-uncle! Certainly, this theory offers ample opportunity for John Alden to have learned about Captain Jones' trip to New England and to gain the job of cooper/carpenter for the voyage. Unfortunately, no records have been found in Harwich or the county of Essex of a John Alden who could be ours. If Captain Jones was related to John Alden, William Bradford did not know of it when he wrote his history or he almost certainly would have mentioned the connection.
John, himself, left us no information about his past. We estimate the year of his birth as 1598 using John's own deposition and a broadside published upon his death. In the deposition made on 6 July 1682 in John stated he was "aged 83 yeers or thereabouts" (PCR, Judicial Acts, Part 2, p. 32; MD, 3:120-121), which would indicate he was born between 6 July 1598 and 6 July 1599. When John died on 12 September 1687, a broadside published to commemorate the occasion stated he was "about eighty nine years of age," indicating he was born between 12 September 1597 and 12 September 1598 (MD, 9:129). Combining the two ranges results in an estimated birth date between 6 July and 12 September 1598 or thereabouts.
Thus John was about twenty-two years old in 1620 and very likely had just finished an apprenticeship in cooperage or carpentry. No letters, no family Bible, no journal, no writings survive for either John or Priscilla. All that survives is the story of their courtship.
Priscilla Mullins was the daughter of William Mullins, also a passenger on the Mayflower with his wife Alice and son Joseph. William, Alice, and Joseph all died in the terrible sickness and deprivation of the first winter in Plymouth. Priscilla, who was probably still too young to be married, was orphaned, her only surviving kin her brother and sister in England. Poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow celebrated the story of how Priscilla attracted the attentions of the newly-widowed Captain Myles Standish, who asked his friend John Alden to propose on his behalf only to have Priscilla ask "Why don't you speak for yourself John?" Most of the world draws its image of the Pilgrim story from Longfellow's epic narrative poem, The Courtship of Myles Standish. The basic story was apparently handed down in the Alden family and published by John and Priscilla's great-great-grandson, Rev. Timothy Alden, in his Collection of American Epitaphs and Inscriptions in 1814 (264-271). Rev. Timothy's facts are not always correct (he was not born until 1736, fifty years after John's death), and he embellishes in the typical style of his day, but his account of the famous courtship and description of John is as close to the original as we can get:

Mrs. Rose Standish, consort of captain Standish, departed this life, on the 29 of January, 1621. This circumstance is mentioned as an introduction to the following anecdote, which has been carefully handed down by tradition.

In a very short time after the decease of mrs. Standish, the captain was led to think, that, if he could obtain miss Priscilla Mullins, a daughter of mr. William Mullins, the breach in his family would be happily repaired. He, therefore, according to the custom of those times, sent to ask mr. Mullins' permission to visit his daughter. John Alden, the messenger, went and faithfully communicated the wishes of the captain. The old gentleman did not object, as he might have done, on account of the recency of captain Standish's bereavement. He said it was perfectly agreeable to him, but the young lady must also be consulted. The damsel was then called into the room, and John Alden, who is said to have been a man of most excellent form with a fair and ruddy complexion, arose, and, in a very courteous and prepossessing manner, delivered his errand. Miss Mullins listened with respectful attention, and at last, after a considerable pause, fixing her eyes upon him, with an open and pleasant countenance, said, prithee, John, why do you not speak for yourse~? He blushed, and bowed, and took his leave, but with a look, which indicated more, than his diffidence would permit him otherwise to express. However, he soon renewed his visit, and it was not long before their nuptials were celebrated in ample form.

Obviously, in addition to the inevitable distortions of stories told and retold over the years, the Rev. Alden had already taken some poetic license with the family story before Longfellow took over. There would have been very little time between the death of Rose Standish on January 29th and the death of William Mullins on February 21st, if all of this took place while Mullins was alive, and there is little chance even the flamboyant Captain Standish would have been courting Priscilla during those desperate months of sickness and starvation in the winter of 1621. A grain of truth probably exists in the family tradition, but most of the story that found it's way to Longfellow's poem is pure imagination.
The marriage date of John and Priscilla is also unknown. They were certainly married at Plymouth. We know that William Bradford's marriage to Alice Carpenter 14 August 1624 was the fourth marriage in Plymouth Colony (MD, 30:4). The first was that of Edward Winslow and Susannah White in 1621. Francis Eaton's marriage to his second wife, Dorothy, maidservant to the Carvers, was possibly the second (TAG, 72:308-309). John Alden and Priscilla Mullins are likely the third.
Since Priscilla is not listed in the 1623 division of land (which probably took place in early 1623/4 - see below), it is assumed their marriage took place before that list was made and, therefore, John Alden's share included that of his wife. By the division of cattle in May 1627, the Aldens had two children, Elizabeth and John. No birth records for any of the Alden children survive, but from the death record of Elizabeth Alden it appears she was born about 1624-1625 and was the eldest child. This places John and Priscilla's marriage about 1623. Since no birth or baptism for Priscilla has been found, we can only make a wild guess that she may have been about sixteen to eighteen in 1620, slightly too young to marry in the first year or two after she was orphaned.
William Bradford's account of the "Increasings and Decreasings" of the Mayflower passengers, written in 1650, states:

Mr. Mullins and his wife, his son and his servant died the first winter. Only his daughter Priscilla survived, and married with John Alden, who are both living and have eleven children. And their eldest daughter is married and hath five children (Bradford's History, 445; MD, 1:9)

No further written record of Priscilla survives. Bradford's statement that she had eleven children (and that her eldest daughter had five by 1650) is contradicted by his marginal tally of "15" beside the entry. Eleven children plus five grandchildren should have been "16." Only ten children have been identified. If there were other children, they died unmarried and without heirs before John Alden's estate was settled.
Priscilla died before her husband. A nineteenth century account published by John A. Goodwin in The Pilgrim Republic in 1888 describes the mourners at the funeral of Governor Josiah Winslow in 1680 including "John Alden, with Priscilla still on his arm" (also NEHGR, 51:429). No contemporary corroboration of this statement has been found, and we can only state with certainty that she was alive when Bradford wrote his list in 1650 but dead by the time John's epitaph was published in 1687 (for certainly if Priscilla had been living, the writer would have mentioned the famous widow). Since no special notice was made of Priscilla's death, we can probably assume she did not die very young nor under any strange circumstances. Sadly, neither the birth, the marriage, nor the death date for one of America's most famous women is known.
The 1623 division of land among the Plymouth colonists (probably made in early 1623/4) placed John Alden in the group that received land on the "north side of the towne." Others in this group were Edward Winslow, Richard Warren, John Goodman, John Crackston, Mary Chilton, Captain Myles Standish, Francis Eaton, Henry Cooper, and Humility Cooper (PCR, 12:4; Plymouth Colony by Stratton, 416). The acreage that John Alden received is illegible, but was probably four acres -- representing one share each for himself and Priscilla, and for her deceased parents William and Alice Mullins (MQ, Feb. 1974, 13).
In 1626 Isaac Allerton negotiated an agreement between the Merchant Adventurers in England who had financed the Plymouth Colony, whereby 53 members of the colony (including John Alden) and five Londdn men (called the "Purchasers") were to pay £1,800 for all of the stocks, lands, and merchandise that belonged to the Company (PCR, 2:177; Plymouth Colony by Stratton, 419-420). In May 1627 John Alden joined with William Bradford, Capt. Myles Standish, Isaac Allerton, Edward Winslow, William Brewster, John Howland, and Thomas Prence, to undertake (thus they were called the "Undertakers") the debt owed by the "Purchasers." In return, this group of eight men received the boats, furs, and other stores that had belonged to the Company as well as rights to trade for themselves for six years. Payment was to be made in corn and tobacco (Of Plimoth Plantation, 194-195).
The division of cattle made 22 May 1627 placed John Alden, Priscilla Alden, and their children Elizabeth and John in the fourth lot that "fell to John Howland & his company Joyned to him." The lot received "one of the 4 heyfers Came in the Jacob Called Raghorne" (Raghorne is a breed of cattle) (PCR, 12:10; Plymouth Colony by Stratton, 422).
The colonists began to spread out from Plymouth and settle on the land they had been granted. At first the families would tend to their land during the summer and return to the Plymouth settlement during the winter where they could attend church. The original Alden house in Duxbury was probably begun during the summers and by 1631 the family was staying longer, perhaps the whole year. Bradford and others in Plymouth were worried about losing the families from the original settlement, and in April 1632 John Alden, Capt. Standish, Jonathan Brewster, and Thomas Prence signed an agreement promising to bring their families back to Plymouth during the winter. However, as Bradford later wrote, "First, those that lived on their lots on the other side of the Bay, called Duxbury, they could not long bring their wives and children to the public worship and church meetings here, but with such burthen as, growing to some competent number, they sued to be dismissed and become a body of themselves" (Bradford~s History, 253). Thus the Alden family took up permanent residence in Duxbury.
The Alden grant in Duxbury was accessible by water from the bay and up the river, so that the whole length of the farm had water transportation. The Green Harbor Path, running from Plymouth to Marshfield passed along the west end of the farm. The bounds of the farm were described in a document dated 4 December 1637, but recorded in 1681 or later:
The bounds of the land of Mr. John Alden of Duxbery, as it was layed out by Gov. Bradford, Mr. Edward Winslow, Joshua Pratt, and Edward Bangs. It begines, for the breadth of it, att a place where formerly an old pine tree stood, where now there is a gravelly hole, and from thence to a burnt walnutt stump, and runinge for the length, and from thence to take its length unto a white oake tree standing a little within the land of Phillip Delano deceased, the root of that tree still remaining, and from thence for the breadth att the head of the lott up to the old Greens Harbor Path; on the southerly side bounded with the meddow of the said John Alden in part and with the land of Experience Mitchell att the upper end (PCR,1:71).

This description was amended under the date 1 January 1637/8 (Alden Family in Alden House, 14):

The bounds of the land of Mr. John Alden att Duxburrow, as it was layed forth by Gov. Bradford, Mr. Edward Winslow, Joshua Pratt, Edward Bangs, as followeth: from an old pine tree by the meddow, which meddow was afterward allotted unto mee, the said John Alden, and for the breadth of the said land buting upon and ranging allong the said Blew Fish River to a burnt walnut stump; and from thence to a walnut tree ranging from the abovesaid stump west north west, which was sum tim after run by Joshua Prate and Phillip Delano, Senior, unto a white oake tree, standing a little within the bounds of Phillip Delanoes land, there being a stump or root of that tree still remaining, and from thence for the breadth att the head, up to Greens Harbour, old path; and on the southerly side of the land bounded ptly with my owne meddow, and with the land of Experience Mitchell toward the upper end.

The first house built and occupied by John and Priscilla was a long, narrow house with a field stone foundation and a root cellar under the west end. Archealogical excavations made in 1960 by Roland Wells Robbins revealed the cellar stones and that the house was about 10 ½ feet in width and 38 feet in length (here the Aldens raised 10 children!). It's size would have been similar to a modern mobile home, although the Alden house would have had a loft or second floor. Evidence at the site of the old house proved that the old house had not burned, as many old stories claimed. It had definitely been moved or dismantled. The dimensions of the old house led Robbins to
believe that it had been dismantled and moved up the hill to be incorporated as the kitchen, borning room, and buttrey of the existing Alden House, which are exactly the same dimensions (Pilgrim John Alden's Progress, 15).
The present Alden house was believed to have been built in 1653, a date reputedly found carved in one of the beams or boards of the hous'e. However, recent archealogical work indicates the house may have been built sometime in the latter two decades of the 1600's. It is still believed that beams from the original house were used in the construction of the newer one. Further research is being undertaken by the Alden Kindred of America, Inc., which owns and maintains the house. The Alden house remained in the possession of members of the Jonathan2 Alden family until 1892 and was transferred to the Alden Kindred in 1907 (Alden Family in Alden House, 128).
John Alden was on the 1633 list of Plymouth freemen among those admitted prior to 1 January 1632/3 (PCR, 1:3). The tax list of 25 March 1633 assesses John Alden £1.4s. The highest tax was assessed to Isaac Allerton (J3.lls.). John Alden was assessed the same tax on the 27 March 1634 list (the highest then being Edward Winslow at £2.5s.) (PCR, 1:9, 27; Plymouth Colony by Stratton, 427-429).
In 1634, John Alden found himself imprisoned in Boston as the result of an incident on the Kennebec River involving parties from the Massachusetts Bay Colony and Plymouth Colony. The Bradford Patent gave Plymouth the right to settle and trade on the Kennebec River. John Howland was in charge of the Plymouth trading post on the river in 1634 when a trading ship from the Piscataqua settlement, under John Hocking, attempted to horn in. After they ignored his warnings to leave, Howland ordered their ship's mooring lines cut. Hocking shot and killed the man who cut the line, and one of the Plymouth men shot and killed Hocking. John Alden had been in Kennebec bringing supplies to the post at this time, but was not a party to the shootings. However, by the time he returned to Boston, a one-sided version of the news had arrived before him, and as he was the nearest Plymouth Colony representative at hand, Alden was arrested. Captain Myles Standish was dispatched with letters from Thomas Prence, Governor of the Plymouth Colony, to straighten out the officials in Boston. Prence was successful in convincing Governor Dudley that they had heard only half of the story, the part about Hocking having killed a man being omitted. Alden was released, but the dispute over trading rights on the Kennebec continued acrimoniously between the two colonies (Bradford's History, 263-265).
For a young man hired as a cooper, John Alden soon assumed a place of high responsibility in the Plymouth Colony, serving as an Assistant many times between 1632 and 1640 and 1650 to 1686. He acted as Deputy Governor on two occasions when the Governor was absent, in March 1664/5 and October 1677; was Treasurer for three terms 1656 through 1658; and served on numerous committees and councils of war. This extensive public service indicates that he must have been well educated. Whether he received that education in England or from his fellow Pilgrims such as Winslow and Bradford is not known (Great Migration Begins, 1:2 1).
In 1636 and 1637 John Alden was assigned mowing ground for the year (PCR, 1:40, 56). John Alden's cattle mark recorded at Plymouth 15 November 1636 was "a peece like a long round cut" (Plymouth Town Recs, 1). On 6 March 1636/7, "A parcel of land containing a knoll, or a little hill, lying over against Mr. Alden's land at Blewfish River, is granted by the Court unto the said Mr. John Alden in lieu of a parcel of land taken from him (next unto Samuel Nash's lands) for public use" (PCR, 1:51). Bluefish River is a marshy brook in the eastern part of Duxbury.
On 5 February 1637/8 John was granted "certain lands at Green's Harbor" (later Marshfield). John Alden and Myles Standish were granted 300 acres "on the north side of the South River" on 2 July 1638, and John was granted "a little parcel of land . . . lying at the southerly side of his lot" on 3 September 1638 (PCR, 1:76, 191, 195). The South River rises in Duxbury and flows through Marshfield to the sea.
In 1638 Assistants Thomas Prence and John Alden were dispatched to Sandwich to settle a dispute over how that town's granted land was to be divided (Plymouth Colony by Stratton, 65).
In 1643 a list was made of all colony men able to bear arms (between the ages of 16 and 60). "Mr. John Alden, Sen., John Alden, Jun., and Jos:
Alden" were all listed for the town of "Duxborrow" (PCR, 8:187-196; Plymouth Colony by Stratton, 441).
In October 1645 the General Court granted the inhabitants of Duxbury "a competent Porcion of lands about Saughtuckquett, towards the west, for a plantacon for them, and to have it foure miles every way from the place where they shall sett up their center . . . and have nominated Captaine Miles Standish, Mr. John Alden, Georg Soul, Constant Southworth, Joseph Rogers, and Willm Brett to be feoffees in trust for the equal1 devideing and laying forth of the said lands to their inhabitants." These lands became known as Duxbury New Plantation, incorporated in 1656 as the town of Bridgewater (PCR, 2:88, 3:101, 143; Plymouth Colony by Stratton, 79).
Robert Hicks of Plymouth mentioned in his will dated 28 May 1645, a field on the north side of Plymouth that he had "lately purchased of Mr. John Aldin" (MD, 8:144). John Alden bought land from Edward Hall in 1651 (PCR, 1:73).
On 2 February 1657/8 John Copeland and William Braind, Quakers, were charged with verbally abusing John Alden and Thomas Southworth among others. They were ordered to leave the colony, but either did not or returned, and on 8 February the two men were publicly whipped. While Plymouth Colony's treatment of Quakers was milder than Massachusetts Bay Colony, which hanged four, the Quakers were not welcomed in either place and were urged to move on. In 1658 James Cudworth of Scituate, who had lost his position as head of the Scituate military company when he was accused of aiding Quakers, wrote to England to complain about the treatment Quakers were receiving. In his letter he wrote, "Mr. Alden hath deceived the Expectations of many, and indeed lost the affections of such, as I judge were his Cordial Christian Friends; who is very active in such Ways, as I pray God may not be charged him, to be Oppressions of a High Nature." Apparently, Cudworth and others had expected Alden to be more sympathetic to the Quaker's plight (PCR, 3:130, 115, 162; Plymouth Colony by Stratton, 91-92).
"Liberty is granted unto Mr. John Alden to look out a portion of land to accommodate his sons withall, and to make report thereof unto the Court, so it may be confirmed unto him" on 3 June 1657 (PCR, 3:120). At the Duxbury town meeting of 19 January 1659, the town granted to Mr. John Alden, Sen., "all that piece of common land, from the south of Philip Dillano's" (Duxbury Town Rec, 54).
On 13 June 1660 John Alden was allowed "In regard that Mr. Alden is low in his estate, and occasioned to spend much time at the courts on the country's occasions, and so hath done this many years, the Court have allowed him a small gratuity, the sum of ten pounds..." (PCR, 3:195). This did not mean that John was destitute, only that he was short on cash needed to travel on colony business.
In June 1661 the Plymouth Court granted liberty to "Major Josiah Winslow and others the first born children of the jurisdiction of New Plymouth in reference unto an order or grant of the Court bearing date 1633 to purchase certain parcells of land for their accomodation; viz, a parcell next to the Massachusetts' bounds, and another parcell between Namassakett and Bridgewater, and to make report thereof unto the Court that all such may be accommodated as aforesaid." The purchase was made in 1662 from Josiah Wampetuck, Sachem. Mr. Aldin was fourth on the list of those granted land in what was called the "Purchade Purchase" (Pachade/Pochade/Pachage/ Purchade Neck on the Nemasket River near the border of Middleborough and Bridgewater) and his lot was bounded "with two red Oak trees marked" (NEHGR, 3:336). In 1669 the court determined that the first tract should belong to those eight who had their allotments upon Pochade neck and to their heirs; and the second tract to those eight plus those who had their allotments on the east side of Nemasket River in Captain Southworth's purchase.
John was granted "a competency of land" at Namasskett, 7 June 1665, and 100 acres at Teticcut, 4 March 1673/4 (PCR, 4:95; 5:141). Namasket and Titicut were villages in the area that became the town of Middleborough.
At the Plymouth Court of General Sessions held in July 1667, Robert Finney was granted 100 acres "where mr Alden and Captaine Southworth hath land att Namassakett River, if it may be had there . . (Middleboro by Weston, 545).
Mr. John Alden was one of the members of a Council of War assembled at Plymouth in April 1667 to deal with threats from the French and Dutch, and the increasing problems with King Philip and the Narragansetts. They commissioned officers of the military companies and arranged for military watches during any possibility of danger. Plans for evacuation of women and children and orders of war for horse and foot soldiers were made. When King Philip's War broke out in 1675, John Alden was a senior advisor to Gov. Josias Winslow (Plymouth Colony by Stratton, 102, 110).
In 1675, "The Sixteen Shilling Purchase" was made by Constant Southworth and John Tomson (for £33) from the Indian sachems in Middleborough. The largest purchase of land in the town, it included what is now the town of Lakeville, running to the Dartmouth line. John Alden was one of the 71 original proprietors of this purchase who were assigned lots on 21 November 1679. John received the 15th lot (Middleboro by Weston, 621). The list of proprietors in Middleberry taken 28 June 1677 includes Mr. John Alden (Middleboro by Weston, 551).
On 6 July 1682 Mr. John Alden made a deposition to the Plymouth court (MD, 3:120-121; PCR, 2:32):

John Alden Esqr Aged 83 yeers or thereabouts Testifyeth and saith That I this Deponant being one of the first Corners into New England to settle att or about Plymouth which Now is about 62 yeer since Doth know and understand by Osamequine the Great Sachem of these pttes that then was; and alsoe from Divers other prsons both English and Indians That the little Iland lying Neare the southerly point of Mount hope Neck. Called by the Indians Chessawanuck by the English hoge Iland Did then blonge and appertaine to the said Sachem Osamequin as the other lands adjacent upon the Maine then Did and that the said Iland was Called by the English att the Trading house att Sowamsett then belonging to the Companie of Plymouth Collonie, hog Iland, upon this ocation that the said Companies People att the said Trading house; had then the posession and Improvement of
the said Iland by keeping hoggs for theire use theron; and further I this Deponant Doe Testify that both the said Sachem Osamequin and Wamsitta his reputed Eldest son; Did Give Graunt Allianate Infeoffe and Confeirme the Iland aforsaid unto Richard Smith Now of Naragansett; The said Iland being thus posessed and Improved; att the pleasure of the Collonie of New Plymouth aforsaid, a long longe time before Rhode Island was Posessed or Improved by any English.

In lieu of a will, John distributed his real estate among his sons by a series of deeds. On 8 July 1674, "for love and natural affection and other valuable causes and considerations," John deeded to "David Alden his true and natural son all that his land both meadow and upland that belongs unto him situate or being at or about a place called Rootey Brook within the Township of Mid~eborough... excepting only one hundred acres," totaling about 300 acres (Plymouth Co LR, 3:330). Rootey Brook apparently flowed into the Nemasket River near Nemasket (Assawampsett) pond.
On 1 April 1679 John gave to his son Joseph "all that my share of land.., within the township of Bridgewater" (Plymouth Co LR, 3:194).
On 1 January 1685[/5] John Alden, Sr., of Duxbury for "that real love and parental affection which I bear to my beloved and dutiful son Jonathan Alden" deeded all of his upland in Duxbury for which "see old book of grants and bounds of land anno 1637 folio 137," and all other lands at Duxbury whether granted by court at Plymouth or town of Duxbury (Plymouth Co LR, 6:53).
On 13 January 1686[/7] "for that natural love and affection which I bear to my firstborn and dutiful son John Alden of Boston," John Alden, Sr., of Duxbury, deeded 100 acres at Pekard Neck alias Pachague with one-eighth of the meadow belonging to that place, and one hundred acres at Rootey Brook (brother David Alden to have first right of purchase if John, Jr., should wish to sell this hundred acres), together with a sixteen shilling purchase being the fifteenth lot, all in Middleborough, and one hundred acres, the first in a division of one thousand acres in Bridgewater (Plymouth Co LR, 5:437).
John Alden, Sr., of Duxbury, cooper, gave to sons Jonathan and David Alden five acres of salt marsh at Duxbury and "my whole proportion in the Major's Purchase commonly so-called being the thirty-fifth part of said pruchase" (MD, 9:145; Plymouth Co LR, 4:65). The Major's or Five Men's Purchase had been bought by Major Josiah Winslow from sachem Tispequin in 1663 and consisted of a narrow tract on the east side of Nemasket River between the upper and lower Indian paths to Plymouth, extending to the Carver line (Middleboro by Weston, 600).
John Alden died on 12 September 1687 by the old calendar. His death was noted by Judge Sewell, "Monday, Sept. 12. Mr. John Alden, the ancient Magistrate of Plymouth, died" (Sewall Diary, 150), and in two broadsides printed to commemorate the passing of the last signer of the Mayflower Compact. Reproductions of the broadsides were published in The Mayflower Descendant (MD, 9:129, 34:49). John and Priscilla were buried in the old Duxbury burying ground, but the exact location of their graves is not now known. In the 1950's stones were erected by Alden Kindred.

Notes for Alexander Standish:
Alexander Standish was born before the 22 May 1627 division of cattle in which he received a share in his father's lot. He was aged sixteen or over in 1643 when he was on the list of men able to bear arms in Plymouth (PCR, 12:9-13; 8:187-88). On 1 June 1647 Alexander Standish was proposed as a Freeman and he was elected Freeman 7 June 1648 (PCR, 2:114, 123).

Alexander was called "eldest son" in the 7 March 1655/6 will of his father and received a double share in the land. He was co-executor with his mother and brothers Myles and Josias (MD, 3:153-56). Myles Standish also gave his son Alexander "all my lands as heire apparent by lawfull Decent in Ormistick Borsconge Wrightington Maudsley Newburrow Crawston and the Lie of man and given to mee as right heire by lawfull Decent but Surruptuously Detained from mee my great G[ran]dfather being a 2cond or younger brother from the house of Standish of Standish." The ancestry of Myles Standish and his entitlement to this property have been a matter of debate (MD, 38:186). Alexander's will mentions an attempt to recover property in England, apparently without success.

Alexander Standish was a constable of Duxbury in 1669 and on the 1670 list of Freemen of Duxbury (PCR, 5:18, 275). On 4 June 1683 Alexander Standish and William Pabodie, both of Duxborrough, made an agreement in which Standish exchanged about an acre of land adjoining Pabodie's property for right of way across another part of Pabodie's land to Standish's meadow lot on the south side of Eagle Creek which Standish had no way of reaching except across someone else's land. On 5 April 1694 Isaac Lobdin [Lobdell] was ordered to erect a bound marker at the corner of his and Mr. Alexander Standish's land after having "unadvisedly cut down the Ancient bounds marked tree." Alexander was chosen assessor of Duxbury in 1687-1688 and served as town clerk 1694-1699 (Duxbu~y Town Rec, 37, 66-74, 177-78).

He served as a juror at the Plymouth Court in September 1690 and was chosen by Duxbury to be a juror in 1691 (Plymouth Co Ct Recs, 1:205; Duxbu~y Town Rec, 182). At the Plymouth Court in September 1700 Alexander Standish, Gentleman, and Desire his wife sued John Partridge, husbandman, for slander and defamation. The case was "referred to arbitration and action withdrawn" (Plymouth Co Ct Recs, 1:241).

Alexander Standish made his will 21 February 1701/2 naming his wife (all the estate she brought with her that was remaining at his death and 1/3 of the moveable estate; the keeping of three cows, twelve sheep, and the use of the best room "or of any Roome Either above or below vizt oven Celler leantoo or leantoes or shedd" during her widowhood with sufficient wood brought to the door; son Miles was to provide sufficient "Indian Rie wheat malt & liberty to sow a peck of flax seed"; and she was to dipose of his clothes at her owti discretion to sons Thomas and Ichabod); eldest son Miles (dwelling house and land in Duxbury, including land at Sandy point, etc.; "priviledge to make use" of the team and husbandry tools; and the "Cannoo"); two sons Thomas and Ichabod (five acres within fence to plant and plow "when they are grown up to manage it for themselves and for their mother" and use of team and tools; also all the land butting on Winnatuxet River next to Mr. Thomsons land with the meadow granted by the court to "my father at Satucket pond," about four acres; also each a bed and furniture and one cow and five sheep; Thomas to also receive my short kerbine" and "my Small boared Gun"; and Ichabod "my musquet" and shirt buttons); child Desire Standish (a bed and furniture); son Ebenezer (all lands he had sold to Mr. Robinson); and daughters Lorah the wife of Abraham Samson, Lidia wife of Isaac Samson, Mercy Samson wife of Caleb Samson, Elizabeth Delano wife of Samuel Delano, and Sarah Soul wife of Benjamin Soul (5 shillings each). He ordered that if the wood he reserved on the land his son Ebenezer sold to Mr. Robinson had not been sold before his death, it should be sold and the money divided between Thomas and Ichabod with Miles to have 40 shillings out of it. "Also my will is That whatsoever Estate Either in New England or in old which I have Committeed unto ye hands of Robert orchard to Recover in England by letters of Attorney...and [to] John Rogers of Boston..." (1/3 to his wife and the remainder divided equally among Thomas, Ichabod, and Desire). He appointed son Miles Standish as executor and "my Brother" David Alden as overseer (Plymouth Co PR, #19152, 1:362; MD, 12:99-102).

On 5 July 1702 Alexander "upon Some further Serious Consideration," added a codicil to the will giving sons Thomas and Ichabod a "yoek of oxen between them for their own to make use of them when they are capable"; "my whole Crop of Come now upon ye Ground of all sorts both English & Indian to my whole family for their use my son Miles standish And his wife onely excepted"; repeating that Thomas and Ichabod were to receive his cloathing; and dividing his books among Miles, Thomas, Ichabod and Desire. The will was proved at Plymouth 29 July 1702. Inventory was taken 23 July 1702 and included houses and lands in Duxborough worth £400 and lands in Middleborough adjacent to Lt. Thomson worth £200 (MD, 12:102-104).

On 10 August 1702 the will was contested by four of the sons-in-law on behalf of themselves and their wives. They questioned Alexander's state of mind, saying he was 76 years old. In describing the state of the family, they say Alexander had by his first wife, who was "a daughter to ye Worshipfull M'~ John Alden a good and prudent woman," two sons and five daughters and after her death he lived a widower for many years until four or five of the daughters had married, but despite promising to remember them in his will, left them very little or nothing. About sixteen years before he died he married his second wife who had estate reserved to her at the marriage and by whom he had two sons and one daughter. To Ebenezer, his second son by his first wife, he gave about £100 "being yC produce of Some part of his farm which himself sold by Deed in his life time." He gave to Miles, a son of the first wife, his farm in Duxborough "yet so words it that yC Greatest part of the meadow is excluded out of yC Bounds he sets to it so that yC most part of his meadow is left wholly undisposed of." They also objected to the amount of goods and services Miles was to supply annually to his step-mother and her children which amounted to more than the farm will yield "And thus he hath made his eldes[t] son a servant for life." Miles was also caught in a bind because he had married his step-mother's eldest daughter; they claimed he agreed to the will "to please his Mother in law or [for] fear of displeasing her." Alexander is also accused of cutting off his five daughters with only 5 shillings each, although all were married and had children and were "well disposed women and borne of as Good a mother & prudent a woman as any in her day in ye town where she lived." Another inconsistency mentioned is that Alexander gave his wife, in addition to what she brought with her, one third of the moveables, yet disposed of the moveable estate to his three children in such a way as to leave nothing to pay his debts. They also call his disposing of his team and tools, etc., as absurd. The petition was signed by Abraham Samson, Isaac Samson, Caleb Samson, and Benjamin Soul (MD, 12:105-12).

On 4 February 1702/3 Abraham Sampson and Lorah his wife, Isaac Sampson and Lediah his wife, Caleb Sampson and Marcy his wife, and Benjamin Sole and Sarah his wife, sons-in-law and daughters of Alexander Standish, filed a petition for division noting that the Judge had proceeded to prove the will despite their caveat. This time they claimed that about seven or eight acres of meadow or marsh near Eagles Nest Creek in Duxbury was left undisposed of. After receiving a reply from Miles Standish as executor and ordering an appraisal of the meadow, Judge Nathaniel Thomas made his decree on 6 July 1703. He noted that in addition to the original petition, on 18 June Samuel Delano had appeared on behalf of himself and his wife Elizabeth, another daughter of Alexander Standish, and made their claim to a reasonable portion of the estate. The Judge disallowed Miles Standish's explanations of why the property should go to him as contradictory, but because the land could not be divided, gave Miles the meadow on the condition that he pay his five sisters, Lorah Samson, Lidia Samson, Mercy Samson, Sarah Soule, and Elizabeth Dillono, ten pounds each. Miles appealed the decision but gave bond on 13 July 1703, as directed in the Judge's decree, against payment of the amounts to his sisters (MD, 12:176-185).

The will of Desire Standish late of Duxborough now of Marshfield dated 30 July 1723 and proved 17 May 1732, mentions she is widow of Mr. Alexander Standish late of Duxborough. She does not mention any of his children by his first wife (MD, 12:48-52).

Notes for Edward Doty:
From "The Great Migration Begins," pp. 573-577:

EDWARD DOTY

ORIGIN: Unknown
MIGRATION: 1620 on Mayflower
FIRST RESIDENCE: Plymouth

OCCUPATION: Planter [PCR 2:44, 69].
FREEMAN: In the "1633" Plymouth list of freemen, ahead of those admitted on 1 January 1632/3 [PCR 1:3]. In the Plymouth section of the list of 1639 [PCR 8:174].
EDUCATION: Signed his deeds by mark.
OFFICES: In Plymouth section of 1643 Plymouth Colony list of men able to bear arms [PCR 8:187].
ESTATE: In the 1623 Plymouth division of land there are two consecutive entries for "Edward [blank]," granted one acre; one of these must be for Edward Doty [PCR 12:4]. In the 1627 Plymouth division of cattle "Edward Dolton" was the eleventh person in the fourth company [PCR 12:10].
       Assessed œ1 7s. in the Plymouth tax list of 25 March 1633, and 18s. in the list of 27 March 1634 [PCR 1:10, 27].
       On 12 July 1637, "Edward Dotey" sold for œ150 to Richard Derby "all those his messuages, houses and tenements at the High Cliff or Skeart Hill together with the four lots of lands and three other acres purchased of Josuah Pratt, Phineas Pratt and John Shawe," with an exclusion of an inner chamber in the "chief messuage ... wherein the said Edward Dotey layeth his corn" and that Doty would keep possession of the other house and three lots until he received all the œ150 and reaped the crop of corn. If Richard Derby failed to return from old England or failed to have the œ150 paid by harvest time, Doty could sow another crop and reap it until Derby returned or paid [PCR 12:20-21]. Apparently Derby settled for the single lot and paid œ22 [PCR 12:46].
       On 16 September 1641, Edward Doty was granted a forty acre parcell of upland at Lakenham [PCR 2:26]. On 7 May 1642 "Edward Dotey" purchased one acre of upland at High Cliff from Joshua Pratt [PCR 12:81]. On 5 May 1643 "Edward Dotey" sold two lots totalling forty acres of upland to Stephen Bryan and John Shaw Jr. [PCR 12:91]. On a list entitled "Names of the Purchasers" probably dated after 26 December 1651, Edward Doty is twenty-first of fifty-eight [PCR 2:177].
       In his will, dated 20 May 1655 and proved 5 March 1655/6, Edward Doty Senior of Plymouth "being sick" bequeathed "my purchase land lying at Coaksett unto my sons; my son Edward I give a double portion and to the rest of my sons equal alike," only to "my wife I leave a third during her life then after to return to my sons"; to "my loving wife ... my house and lands and meadows within the precincts of New Plymouth"; "my share of land at Punckquetest if it come to anything I give it unto my son Edward"; on 5 March 1655/6 "Faith the wife of Edward Dotten deceased" relinquished to her sons her right in lands at Coaksett [MD 3:87-88, citing PCPR 2:1:14].
       The inventory of "Edward Dotten lately deceased," taken 21 November 1655, totalled œ137 19s. 6d., of which œ60 was real estate: "his dwelling house and his land adjoining," œ25; "threescore acres of upland with the meadow adjoining to it lying in the woods," œ10; "the land at Clarkes Iland," œ5; and "the purchase land lying at Coakset," œ20 [MD 3:88-89, citing PCPR 2:1:15-16].
       In her will, dated 12 December 1675 and proved 8 June 1676, "Faith Phillips the wife of John Phillipes" of Marshfield "though weak in body" bequeathed to "my daughter Mary" œ9 in "my son John's hands"; to "my daughter Elizabeth œ6"; to "my daughter Mary œ3 due by bill of sale"; to "my daughter Desire œ6 due by my bill of sale and a warming pan." On 4 November 1676 letters of administration were granted to "John Rouse Junior of Marshfield ... in the behalf of himself his wife and sisters: viz: Desire [torn] and Mary Doten" [MD 3:89-90, citing PCPR 3:2:12].

BIRTH: By about 1599 (he was a servant on his arrival, but as he fought a duel within months of landing at Plymouth, he was more likely close to the end of his servitude rather than the beginning; he signed the Mayflower Compact, probably as an adult).
DEATH: Plymouth 23 August 1655 [PCR 8:17].

ASSOCIATIONS: Edward Doty had a complex financial relationship with Richard Derby, but not one that necessarily implies kinship.

COMMENTS: In 1988 Neil D. Thompson published a refutation of the false claim for the ancestry of Edward Doty made by Gustave Anjou [TAG 63:215].
       Bradford, in his accounting of 1651, stated that Edward Doty came on the Mayflower as a servant of STEPHEN HOPKINS, and that in 1650 "Edward Doty by a second wife hath seven children, and both he and they are living" [Bradford 442, 447]. Doty signed the Mayflower Compact.
       Doty went with his master Hopkins and more than a dozen others on the voyage of "discovery" on 6 December 1620 [Mourt 31-32].
       He is said to have been guilty of the "second offence" committed in Plymouth. As Bradford tells us: "...the first duel fought in New England, upon a challenge at single combat with sword and dagger, between Edward Doty and Edward Leister, servants of Mr. Hopkins. Both being wounded, the one in the hand, the other in the thigh, they are adjudged by the whole company to have their head and feet tied together, and so to lie for twenty-four hours, without meat or drink; which is begun to be inflicted, but within an hour, because of their great pains, at their own and their master's humble request, upon promise of better carriage, they are released by the governor" [Prince 190-91, citing Bradford's lost register].
       This incident set the tone for the next twenty years in which Doty was frequently in court for fighting, slandering, trespass and debt. Edward Doty was defendant in three civil suits at the court of 2 January 1632/3, all involving hogs; he won one and lost two [PCR 1:6-7]. On 1 April 1633 Doty was sued for slander by one of the winning plaintiffs just noted, and was fined 50s. [PCR 1:12].
       Still he prospered, for he had an apprentice in 1633, although an unhappy one. On 2 January 1633/4 the Court settled a dispute between Edward Doty and his apprentice John Smith, reducing the time of the apprenticeship from ten years to five [PCR 1:23]. On 31 August 1638 Doty received the assignation of seven years labor of William Snow from Snow's previous master, Richard Derby [PCR 1:94].
       On 24 March 1633/4 Edward Doty was fined 10s. for breaking the peace and drawing blood from Josias Cooke [PCR 1:26]. On 28 March 1634 Edward Doty won a suit against Francis Sprague [PCR 1:29].
       On 7 March 1636/7, Edward Doty was found guilty of a "deceitful bargain" over a lot of land, and restored the lot to George Clarke [PCR 7:5]. The controversy continued when George Clark won damages and costs from Doty at court 2 October 1637, Clark charging him with denying liberty to hold land for the term he had taken it [PCR 7:6]. Things escalated, for that same day Clark also charged Doty for assault and battery, and Doty was further fined [PCR 7:6]. Doty was sued in less sanguinary encounters between 1638 and 1651 with Richard Derby, John Shaw, widow Bridget Fuller and John Holmes over debt and trespass, and lost them all [PCR 7:10, 15, 16, 47, 48, 56]. He successfully sued James Luxford for trespass, 7 December 1641 [PCR 7:26].
       At court 1 February 1641/2, Thomas Symons charged "Edward Dotey" with carelessly allowing cattle put in his hands to "break into men's corn" endangering the cattle and other property, and Doty was ordered to put his cattle in a "keep" [PCR 2:33].
       On 10 February 1643/4 "Edward Dotey" was one of six men directed by the town of Plymouth to build a wolftrap at Plain Dealing [PTR 1:16]. In March, 1657, he was midway down the list of "those that have interest and proprieties in the town's land at Punckateeset over against Rhode Island" [PTR 1:37].
       Writing in 1897 Ethan Allen Doty quotes many documents, including some that would be very helpful in refining our knowledge of this family, but which do not appear in the colony or town records. The most important of these would be receipts given by all the sons of the immigrant for their shares in his estate [The Doty-Doten Family in America (Brooklyn 1897), p. 28]. Perhaps these documents are privately held.
       Daughter Desire, who married successively William Sherman, Isaac Holmes and Alexander Standish, was said to have been eighty-six when she died in 1731, placing her birth about 1645. But her last child by Standish was born in 1693, when she would have been forty-eight by this reckoning. She was probably a few years younger than her age at death shows, but it is hard to know just where to fit her into the sequence of children.
       Savage states that the immigrant had children William and Faith, in addition to the children listed above, but there is no evidence for such children. From the probate records for Edward Doty's widow we may be sure that no daughter by the name of Faith survived to adulthood. Savage also claims that Edward Doty removed to Yarmouth, but all records for him place him in Plymouth.
       In 1993 the General Society of Mayflower Descendants published the second edition of its "in progress" volume on Edward Doty, edited by Peter Hill,

Notes for Alexander Standish:
Alexander Standish was born before the 22 May 1627 division of cattle in which he received a share in his father's lot. He was aged sixteen or over in 1643 when he was on the list of men able to bear arms in Plymouth (PCR, 12:9-13; 8:187-88). On 1 June 1647 Alexander Standish was proposed as a Freeman and he was elected Freeman 7 June 1648 (PCR, 2:114, 123).

Alexander was called "eldest son" in the 7 March 1655/6 will of his father and received a double share in the land. He was co-executor with his mother and brothers Myles and Josias (MD, 3:153-56). Myles Standish also gave his son Alexander "all my lands as heire apparent by lawfull Decent in Ormistick Borsconge Wrightington Maudsley Newburrow Crawston and the Lie of man and given to mee as right heire by lawfull Decent but Surruptuously Detained from mee my great G[ran]dfather being a 2cond or younger brother from the house of Standish of Standish." The ancestry of Myles Standish and his entitlement to this property have been a matter of debate (MD, 38:186). Alexander's will mentions an attempt to recover property in England, apparently without success.

Alexander Standish was a constable of Duxbury in 1669 and on the 1670 list of Freemen of Duxbury (PCR, 5:18, 275). On 4 June 1683 Alexander Standish and William Pabodie, both of Duxborrough, made an agreement in which Standish exchanged about an acre of land adjoining Pabodie's property for right of way across another part of Pabodie's land to Standish's meadow lot on the south side of Eagle Creek which Standish had no way of reaching except across someone else's land. On 5 April 1694 Isaac Lobdin [Lobdell] was ordered to erect a bound marker at the corner of his and Mr. Alexander Standish's land after having "unadvisedly cut down the Ancient bounds marked tree." Alexander was chosen assessor of Duxbury in 1687-1688 and served as town clerk 1694-1699 (Duxbu~y Town Rec, 37, 66-74, 177-78).

He served as a juror at the Plymouth Court in September 1690 and was chosen by Duxbury to be a juror in 1691 (Plymouth Co Ct Recs, 1:205; Duxbu~y Town Rec, 182). At the Plymouth Court in September 1700 Alexander Standish, Gentleman, and Desire his wife sued John Partridge, husbandman, for slander and defamation. The case was "referred to arbitration and action withdrawn" (Plymouth Co Ct Recs, 1:241).

Alexander Standish made his will 21 February 1701/2 naming his wife (all the estate she brought with her that was remaining at his death and 1/3 of the moveable estate; the keeping of three cows, twelve sheep, and the use of the best room "or of any Roome Either above or below vizt oven Celler leantoo or leantoes or shedd" during her widowhood with sufficient wood brought to the door; son Miles was to provide sufficient "Indian Rie wheat malt & liberty to sow a peck of flax seed"; and she was to dipose of his clothes at her owti discretion to sons Thomas and Ichabod); eldest son Miles (dwelling house and land in Duxbury, including land at Sandy point, etc.; "priviledge to make use" of the team and husbandry tools; and the "Cannoo"); two sons Thomas and Ichabod (five acres within fence to plant and plow "when they are grown up to manage it for themselves and for their mother" and use of team and tools; also all the land butting on Winnatuxet River next to Mr. Thomsons land with the meadow granted by the court to "my father at Satucket pond," about four acres; also each a bed and furniture and one cow and five sheep; Thomas to also receive my short kerbine" and "my Small boared Gun"; and Ichabod "my musquet" and shirt buttons); child Desire Standish (a bed and furniture); son Ebenezer (all lands he had sold to Mr. Robinson); and daughters Lorah the wife of Abraham Samson, Lidia wife of Isaac Samson, Mercy Samson wife of Caleb Samson, Elizabeth Delano wife of Samuel Delano, and Sarah Soul wife of Benjamin Soul (5 shillings each). He ordered that if the wood he reserved on the land his son Ebenezer sold to Mr. Robinson had not been sold before his death, it should be sold and the money divided between Thomas and Ichabod with Miles to have 40 shillings out of it. "Also my will is That whatsoever Estate Either in New England or in old which I have Committeed unto ye hands of Robert orchard to Recover in England by letters of Attorney...and [to] John Rogers of Boston..." (1/3 to his wife and the remainder divided equally among Thomas, Ichabod, and Desire). He appointed son Miles Standish as executor and "my Brother" David Alden as overseer (Plymouth Co PR, #19152, 1:362; MD, 12:99-102).

On 5 July 1702 Alexander "upon Some further Serious Consideration," added a codicil to the will giving sons Thomas and Ichabod a "yoek of oxen between them for their own to make use of them when they are capable"; "my whole Crop of Come now upon ye Ground of all sorts both English & Indian to my whole family for their use my son Miles standish And his wife onely excepted"; repeating that Thomas and Ichabod were to receive his cloathing; and dividing his books among Miles, Thomas, Ichabod and Desire. The will was proved at Plymouth 29 July 1702. Inventory was taken 23 July 1702 and included houses and lands in Duxborough worth £400 and lands in Middleborough adjacent to Lt. Thomson worth £200 (MD, 12:102-104).

On 10 August 1702 the will was contested by four of the sons-in-law on behalf of themselves and their wives. They questioned Alexander's state of mind, saying he was 76 years old. In describing the state of the family, they say Alexander had by his first wife, who was "a daughter to ye Worshipfull M'~ John Alden a good and prudent woman," two sons and five daughters and after her death he lived a widower for many years until four or five of the daughters had married, but despite promising to remember them in his will, left them very little or nothing. About sixteen years before he died he married his second wife who had estate reserved to her at the marriage and by whom he had two sons and one daughter. To Ebenezer, his second son by his first wife, he gave about £100 "being yC produce of Some part of his farm which himself sold by Deed in his life time." He gave to Miles, a son of the first wife, his farm in Duxborough "yet so words it that yC Greatest part of the meadow is excluded out of yC Bounds he sets to it so that yC most part of his meadow is left wholly undisposed of." They also objected to the amount of goods and services Miles was to supply annually to his step-mother and her children which amounted to more than the farm will yield "And thus he hath made his eldes[t] son a servant for life." Miles was also caught in a bind because he had married his step-mother's eldest daughter; they claimed he agreed to the will "to please his Mother in law or [for] fear of displeasing her." Alexander is also accused of cutting off his five daughters with only 5 shillings each, although all were married and had children and were "well disposed women and borne of as Good a mother & prudent a woman as any in her day in ye town where she lived." Another inconsistency mentioned is that Alexander gave his wife, in addition to what she brought with her, one third of the moveables, yet disposed of the moveable estate to his three children in such a way as to leave nothing to pay his debts. They also call his disposing of his team and tools, etc., as absurd. The petition was signed by Abraham Samson, Isaac Samson, Caleb Samson, and Benjamin Soul (MD, 12:105-12).

On 4 February 1702/3 Abraham Sampson and Lorah his wife, Isaac Sampson and Lediah his wife, Caleb Sampson and Marcy his wife, and Benjamin Sole and Sarah his wife, sons-in-law and daughters of Alexander Standish, filed a petition for division noting that the Judge had proceeded to prove the will despite their caveat. This time they claimed that about seven or eight acres of meadow or marsh near Eagles Nest Creek in Duxbury was left undisposed of. After receiving a reply from Miles Standish as executor and ordering an appraisal of the meadow, Judge Nathaniel Thomas made his decree on 6 July 1703. He noted that in addition to the original petition, on 18 June Samuel Delano had appeared on behalf of himself and his wife Elizabeth, another daughter of Alexander Standish, and made their claim to a reasonable portion of the estate. The Judge disallowed Miles Standish's explanations of why the property should go to him as contradictory, but because the land could not be divided, gave Miles the meadow on the condition that he pay his five sisters, Lorah Samson, Lidia Samson, Mercy Samson, Sarah Soule, and Elizabeth Dillono, ten pounds each. Miles appealed the decision but gave bond on 13 July 1703, as directed in the Judge's decree, against payment of the amounts to his sisters (MD, 12:176-185).

The will of Desire Standish late of Duxborough now of Marshfield dated 30 July 1723 and proved 17 May 1732, mentions she is widow of Mr. Alexander Standish late of Duxborough. She does not mention any of his children by his first wife (MD, 12:48-52).

Notes for Abraham Samson:
ABRAHAM SAMPSON, supposed to have been a brother of [Henry]; came from England some time after Henry, it is not known in what year, but probably in 1629 or 1630; and settled at Duxbury.

He was on the list of persons in Duxbury "able to bear arms," in 1643. That list included all able-bodied males between the ages of sixteen and sixty. He was one of the fifty-four original grantees of Bridgewater, 1645, all of whom then resided in Duxbury.?? Most of the grantees, including Abraham Sampson, did not remove. He was surveyor of highways, 1648; constable, 1653; and was admitted freeman of Plymouth Colony in 1654. He was living in 1686; after which there is no record of him.

His wife, whose baptismal name does not appear, was a daughter of Samuel Nash, the Lieutenant of the Duxbury company. Lieut. Nash was frequently engaged in the military expeditions of the colony, and was an officer in nearly all of them. He was respected by the people; was frequently honored with civil trusts; and was sheriff or chief marshal of the colony, from 1652, through a period of more than twenty years.

Winsor says that Abraham Sampson had a second wife, but does not give her name.

There is no will of Abraham Sampson, or settlement of his estate, on record. As the records of Duxbury, prior to 1666, were destroyed by fire, we are unable to make out a full list of his children. We are able, however, to give the names of four sons, who came to maturity, and had families. If there were daughters, and if there were other sons, their memory has perished. [The Giles Memorial Genealogical Memoirs, pp. 315-316]

Received from cousin Barbara Doying (Camino, CA 95709 - bjdoying@directcon.net), her research on Abraham Samson (well documented):

1. Arnold Nethercott. Our Samson immigrant ancestor was Abraham Samson, first cousin of Henry, who came on the Mayflower as a 16-year old boy. Abraham also came as a boy/young man. Abraham was a son of Lawrence Samson, son of John & brother of James, father of Henry, coming to Plymouth in 1629.

"Plymouth Colony: Its History & People 1620-1691" by Eugene Aubrey Stratton, pg 332: By his (Samuel Nash) will dated 2 Jun 1681 he gave his dwelling house and some lands to Martha Clarke, other lands to his deceased grandson Samuel Sampson's two sons, Samuel and Ichabod Sampson, and the rest of his estate to his daughter Martha, and his granddaughters Elizabeth Delano and Mary Howland (Ply. Colony PR 4:2-112). Clarence Almon Torrey, "A Nash-Sampson-Delano-Howland Problem," TAG 15:165, uses this will and other information to show that Samuel Sampson, the deceased grandson of Lt. Samuel Nash was a son of Abraham Sampson of Duxbury, and thus that Abraham Sampson had married a daughter of Samuel Nash. Since Nash did not mention other sons of Abraham Sampson, it appeared that Abraham had two wives, with the other wife unidentified. Nash's daughter Martha Clarke was childless. With no indication that Nash had any other married children, Torrey felt it safe to assume that the granddaughters were daughters of Abraham Sampson by his first wife, and he identified them as Elizabeth Sampson, wife of Philip (2) Delano, and Mary Sampson, wife of Samuel (2) Howland (Henry 1). Page 347: In "Henry Sampson's Paternal Grandfather (TAG 56:141), Robert Leigh Wards shows Henry's father James had a brother Laurence, who married Mary Shabery, and among their children was an Abraham Samson born at Campton, Bedforshire, 14 August 1614, who would thus be a good candidate for the Plymouth Colony Abraham Samson. Abraham first appears in Plymouth records as a resident of Duxbury who was presented on 4 December 1638 for striking John Washburn, Jr. at the meeting house on the Lord's day (PCR 1L107). In "A Nash-Sampson-Delano-Howland Problem," TAG 15:165, gives indirect evidence to show that Abraham Samson had by his first wife (who was a daughter of Samuel Nash, q.v.) daughters Elizabeth, who married Philip (2) Delano, and Mary, who married Samuel (2) Howland, and he may have had other daughters. Torrey showed that Abraham's son Samuel was also by his first wife, but the other sons were probably by an unidentified second wife.

Samuel Nash, in probably, Duxbury, MA. He died circa 25 Aug 1701 in probably, Duxbury, MA.363. At one time, Abraham was thought to be a brother of Henry, the Mayflower passenger. This is not true, though it is possible that their fathers were brothers. Robert Leigh Ward, in TAG 56:141-143 presented "Henry Sampson's Paternal Grandfather" with extracts from the parish register of Campton, co Bedford, England. Henry's father, James Sampson had a brother Laurence. Laurence Sampson m. Mary Shabery Cranfield, co. Bedford, 2 June 1601. Among their children is an Abraham, bapt. 14 Aug. 1614 about whom Robert L. Ward says "possibly, though not proved, the Abraham1 Sampson of Duxbury in 1629. The ages of the two Abraham’s are close and the Duxbury man named a son George and a daughter Mary. Furthermore, descendants of Abraham1 and Henry1 intermarried, a common occurrence among cousins in that period." Abraham Sampson Sr. sold land to William Pabodie on 3 Aug 1671 in MA. Abraham Sampson Sr. granted land to the heirs of his son Samuel on 31 Aug 1678 in Duxbury, MA. Abraham Sampson Sr. granted land to his son Abraham on 15 Jul 1679 in Duxbury, MA.

Notes for Alexander Standish:
Alexander Standish was born before the 22 May 1627 division of cattle in which he received a share in his father's lot. He was aged sixteen or over in 1643 when he was on the list of men able to bear arms in Plymouth (PCR, 12:9-13; 8:187-88). On 1 June 1647 Alexander Standish was proposed as a Freeman and he was elected Freeman 7 June 1648 (PCR, 2:114, 123).

Alexander was called "eldest son" in the 7 March 1655/6 will of his father and received a double share in the land. He was co-executor with his mother and brothers Myles and Josias (MD, 3:153-56). Myles Standish also gave his son Alexander "all my lands as heire apparent by lawfull Decent in Ormistick Borsconge Wrightington Maudsley Newburrow Crawston and the Lie of man and given to mee as right heire by lawfull Decent but Surruptuously Detained from mee my great G[ran]dfather being a 2cond or younger brother from the house of Standish of Standish." The ancestry of Myles Standish and his entitlement to this property have been a matter of debate (MD, 38:186). Alexander's will mentions an attempt to recover property in England, apparently without success.

Alexander Standish was a constable of Duxbury in 1669 and on the 1670 list of Freemen of Duxbury (PCR, 5:18, 275). On 4 June 1683 Alexander Standish and William Pabodie, both of Duxborrough, made an agreement in which Standish exchanged about an acre of land adjoining Pabodie's property for right of way across another part of Pabodie's land to Standish's meadow lot on the south side of Eagle Creek which Standish had no way of reaching except across someone else's land. On 5 April 1694 Isaac Lobdin [Lobdell] was ordered to erect a bound marker at the corner of his and Mr. Alexander Standish's land after having "unadvisedly cut down the Ancient bounds marked tree." Alexander was chosen assessor of Duxbury in 1687-1688 and served as town clerk 1694-1699 (Duxbu~y Town Rec, 37, 66-74, 177-78).

He served as a juror at the Plymouth Court in September 1690 and was chosen by Duxbury to be a juror in 1691 (Plymouth Co Ct Recs, 1:205; Duxbu~y Town Rec, 182). At the Plymouth Court in September 1700 Alexander Standish, Gentleman, and Desire his wife sued John Partridge, husbandman, for slander and defamation. The case was "referred to arbitration and action withdrawn" (Plymouth Co Ct Recs, 1:241).

Alexander Standish made his will 21 February 1701/2 naming his wife (all the estate she brought with her that was remaining at his death and 1/3 of the moveable estate; the keeping of three cows, twelve sheep, and the use of the best room "or of any Roome Either above or below vizt oven Celler leantoo or leantoes or shedd" during her widowhood with sufficient wood brought to the door; son Miles was to provide sufficient "Indian Rie wheat malt & liberty to sow a peck of flax seed"; and she was to dipose of his clothes at her owti discretion to sons Thomas and Ichabod); eldest son Miles (dwelling house and land in Duxbury, including land at Sandy point, etc.; "priviledge to make use" of the team and husbandry tools; and the "Cannoo"); two sons Thomas and Ichabod (five acres within fence to plant and plow "when they are grown up to manage it for themselves and for their mother" and use of team and tools; also all the land butting on Winnatuxet River next to Mr. Thomsons land with the meadow granted by the court to "my father at Satucket pond," about four acres; also each a bed and furniture and one cow and five sheep; Thomas to also receive my short kerbine" and "my Small boared Gun"; and Ichabod "my musquet" and shirt buttons); child Desire Standish (a bed and furniture); son Ebenezer (all lands he had sold to Mr. Robinson); and daughters Lorah the wife of Abraham Samson, Lidia wife of Isaac Samson, Mercy Samson wife of Caleb Samson, Elizabeth Delano wife of Samuel Delano, and Sarah Soul wife of Benjamin Soul (5 shillings each). He ordered that if the wood he reserved on the land his son Ebenezer sold to Mr. Robinson had not been sold before his death, it should be sold and the money divided between Thomas and Ichabod with Miles to have 40 shillings out of it. "Also my will is That whatsoever Estate Either in New England or in old which I have Committeed unto ye hands of Robert orchard to Recover in England by letters of Attorney...and [to] John Rogers of Boston..." (1/3 to his wife and the remainder divided equally among Thomas, Ichabod, and Desire). He appointed son Miles Standish as executor and "my Brother" David Alden as overseer (Plymouth Co PR, #19152, 1:362; MD, 12:99-102).

On 5 July 1702 Alexander "upon Some further Serious Consideration," added a codicil to the will giving sons Thomas and Ichabod a "yoek of oxen between them for their own to make use of them when they are capable"; "my whole Crop of Come now upon ye Ground of all sorts both English & Indian to my whole family for their use my son Miles standish And his wife onely excepted"; repeating that Thomas and Ichabod were to receive his cloathing; and dividing his books among Miles, Thomas, Ichabod and Desire. The will was proved at Plymouth 29 July 1702. Inventory was taken 23 July 1702 and included houses and lands in Duxborough worth £400 and lands in Middleborough adjacent to Lt. Thomson worth £200 (MD, 12:102-104).

On 10 August 1702 the will was contested by four of the sons-in-law on behalf of themselves and their wives. They questioned Alexander's state of mind, saying he was 76 years old. In describing the state of the family, they say Alexander had by his first wife, who was "a daughter to ye Worshipfull M'~ John Alden a good and prudent woman," two sons and five daughters and after her death he lived a widower for many years until four or five of the daughters had married, but despite promising to remember them in his will, left them very little or nothing. About sixteen years before he died he married his second wife who had estate reserved to her at the marriage and by whom he had two sons and one daughter. To Ebenezer, his second son by his first wife, he gave about £100 "being yC produce of Some part of his farm which himself sold by Deed in his life time." He gave to Miles, a son of the first wife, his farm in Duxborough "yet so words it that yC Greatest part of the meadow is excluded out of yC Bounds he sets to it so that yC most part of his meadow is left wholly undisposed of." They also objected to the amount of goods and services Miles was to supply annually to his step-mother and her children which amounted to more than the farm will yield "And thus he hath made his eldes[t] son a servant for life." Miles was also caught in a bind because he had married his step-mother's eldest daughter; they claimed he agreed to the will "to please his Mother in law or [for] fear of displeasing her." Alexander is also accused of cutting off his five daughters with only 5 shillings each, although all were married and had children and were "well disposed women and borne of as Good a mother & prudent a woman as any in her day in ye town where she lived." Another inconsistency mentioned is that Alexander gave his wife, in addition to what she brought with her, one third of the moveables, yet disposed of the moveable estate to his three children in such a way as to leave nothing to pay his debts. They also call his disposing of his team and tools, etc., as absurd. The petition was signed by Abraham Samson, Isaac Samson, Caleb Samson, and Benjamin Soul (MD, 12:105-12).

On 4 February 1702/3 Abraham Sampson and Lorah his wife, Isaac Sampson and Lediah his wife, Caleb Sampson and Marcy his wife, and Benjamin Sole and Sarah his wife, sons-in-law and daughters of Alexander Standish, filed a petition for division noting that the Judge had proceeded to prove the will despite their caveat. This time they claimed that about seven or eight acres of meadow or marsh near Eagles Nest Creek in Duxbury was left undisposed of. After receiving a reply from Miles Standish as executor and ordering an appraisal of the meadow, Judge Nathaniel Thomas made his decree on 6 July 1703. He noted that in addition to the original petition, on 18 June Samuel Delano had appeared on behalf of himself and his wife Elizabeth, another daughter of Alexander Standish, and made their claim to a reasonable portion of the estate. The Judge disallowed Miles Standish's explanations of why the property should go to him as contradictory, but because the land could not be divided, gave Miles the meadow on the condition that he pay his five sisters, Lorah Samson, Lidia Samson, Mercy Samson, Sarah Soule, and Elizabeth Dillono, ten pounds each. Miles appealed the decision but gave bond on 13 July 1703, as directed in the Judge's decree, against payment of the amounts to his sisters (MD, 12:176-185).

The will of Desire Standish late of Duxborough now of Marshfield dated 30 July 1723 and proved 17 May 1732, mentions she is widow of Mr. Alexander Standish late of Duxborough. She does not mention any of his children by his first wife (MD, 12:48-52).

Notes for Sarah Alden:
SARAH ALDEN was born probably at Duxbury, say between 1630 and 1640 (first child born in early 1660's); death date unknown, but before 13 June 1688 (settlement of her father's estate; MD, 3:11).

She married, say about 1669 (first child born in early 1660's) ALEXANDER STANDISH, son of Pilgrim Miles Standish of the Mayflower and his second wife Barbara (----); born 1626 (age at death); died at Duxbury, 6 July 1702, about 76 years of age (MD, 12:99). He married second, about 1688 (first child born May 1689) or about 1686 (MD, 12:99-108), Desire2 (Doty) (Sherman) Holmes, daughter of Pilgrim Edward Doty of the Mayflower and his wife Faith Clarke (ME, 11(pt. 2):3, 8-10); born about 1644-1645; died at Marshfield, 22 January 1731, aged 86 years (VR, 409; MD, 13:129). Desire married first at Marshfield, 25 December 1667 (VR, 10; MD, 2:182), William Sherman, son of William and Prudence (Hill) Sherman (MD, 13:84), born at Marshfield about 1640 @arents married 1638, MD, 13:84); buried at Marshfield, 17 November 1680 (MD, 2:181); they had six children. Desire married second, at Marshfield, 27 November 1681 (VR, 16; MD, 3:42), Israel Holmes, son of William and Elizabeth (----) Holmes (MD, 5:233), baptised at Scituate, 14 April 1661 (VR, 1:184); drowned in Plymouth Harbor, 24 February 1684/5 (MD,3:188); they had two children. Alexander and Desire had children born at Marshfield (MD, 7:134; see ME, 14:4): Desire, 5 May 1689; Thomas, 29 January1690; and Ichabod, 10 June 1693.

Notes for Henry Samson:
HENRY SAMPSON was one of the company of Pilgrims who came in the world-renowned MAYFLOWER to Plymouth in 1620. He was a member of the family of his uncle, Edward Tilley, and was too young to sign the immortal compact of November 11, in the cabin of that vessel, while at anchor in the harbor of Provincetown. He was, however, enumerated in the assignment of land, 1623, and in the division of cattle, 1627, and was admitted a freeman of Plymouth Colony in 1637.

He early removed to Duxbury--probably with the first settlers of that town; and married ANN PLUMMER, Feb. 6, 1635-6.?? He was one of the original grantees of Bridgewater, 1645, but did not remove thither. He was constable of Duxbury, 1661. "This," says Winsor, "was an office of high trust and responsibility, and none were elected to it but men of good standing.
=====================================================

HENRY SAMSON was apparently bp. Henlow, Co. Bedford, England 15 Jan. 1603/4; d. Duxbury 24 Dec. 1684; son of James and Martha (Cooper) Samson.

He m. Plymouth 6 Feb. 1635/6 ANN PLUMMER. She pre-deceased him but was living 24 Dec. 1668 (deed). The will of John Barnes dated 6 March 1667/8 names "my cozen the wife of Henery Samson."

Henry Samson came on the MAYFLOWER with Edward and Ann Tilley who brought their "cousins" Henry Samson and Humility Cooper.

Bradford wrote, early in 1651: "But the youth Henry Sampson is still living and is married and hath seven children."

In 1637 Henry Samson was one of the volunteers to fight against the Pequot Indians. The Pequots were defeated before the Plymouth Colony troops were needed.

=====================================================

Henry Samson was the son of James Samson and Martha Cooper of Henlow, Bedford, England. James was the son of John Samson. Martha Cooper was the daughter of Edmund Cooper and Mary Wyne. Edmund Cooper was the son of Michael Cooper and Elizabeth Page. Michael Cooper was the son of Michael Cooper and Margaret (---). Michael Cooper is the son of John Cooper and Joan (---).

Elizabeth Page is the daughter of Robert Page and Cicily Greene. Cicily Greene is the daughter of John Greene and Edith Latimer. Edith Latimer can trace her ancestry to several Barons and Lords, including Wido de Reinbudcourt (born about 1040 AD), who was a Doomsday governor under William the Conqueror. While Henry Samson's lines do not connect to any known royalty, there are many Lords, Sheriffs, Governors, and Barons.

For much more detailed information on the Samson ancestry, see the following series of articles written by Robert Leigh Ward in The American Genealogist, 52:198-209 and 56:141-143, and The Genealogist, 6:166-186. Most libraries do not subscribe to The Genealogist, but copies of the article can be obtained through any public library's interlibrary loan service.

Henry Samson came as a young sixteen year old boy on the Mayflower, under the care of his aunt and uncle Edward and Ann (Cooper) Tilley. Henry Samson volunteered and fought in the Pequot War of 1637, and during his life took on several civil positions including constable of Duxbury, property surveyor, and tax collector. Henry Samson married Ann Plummer, whose ancestry is unknown. However, Ann had a sister Mary Plummer, who married John Barnes in Plymouth on 12 September 1633.

Notes for William Mullins:
William Bradford's list of passengers on the Mayflower includes the family of William Mullins (MD, 1:9):

Mr. William Mullines, and his wife; and 2 children Joseph & priscila and a servant Robert Carter

The fate of this family is given in Bradford's list of "increasings and decreasings" (MD, 1:13):

Mr. Molines, and his wife, his sone, and his servant dyed the first winter. Only his daughter priscila survived, and maried with John Alden, who are both living [in 1650], and have 11 [sic] children.

The nuncupative (oral) will of William Mullins probably written 21 February 1621, the day of his death, and copied 2 April 1621 (reprinted here from MD, 1:23 1-232):

In the name of God Amen: I comit my soule to God that gave it and my bodie to the earth from whence it came. Alsoe I give my goodes as followeth That Forty poundes in the hand of goodman Woodes I give my wife tenn poundes, my sonne Joseph tenn poundes, my daughter Priscilla tenn poundes, and my eldest sonne tenn poundes Alsoe I give to my eldest sonne all my debts, bonds, bills (onelye yt forty poundes excepted in the handes of goodman Wood) given as aforesaid wth all the stock in his owne handes. To my eldest daughter I give tenn shillinges to be paied out of my sonnes stock Furthermore that goodes I have in Virginia as followeth To my wife Alice halfe my goodes & to Joseph and Priscilla the other halfe equallie to be devided betweene them. Alsoe I have xxj dozen of shoes, and thirteene paire of bootes wch I give into the Companies handes for forty poundes at seaven years and if thy like them at that rate. If it be thought to deare as my Overssers shall thinck good And if they like them at that rate at the divident I shall have nyne shares whereof I give as followeth twoe to my wife, twoe to my sonne William, twoe to my sonne Joseph, twoe to my daughter Priscilla, and one to the Companie. Allsoe if my sonne William will come to Virginia I give him my share of land furdermore I give to my twoe Overseers Mr John Carver and Mr Williamson, twentye shillinges apeece to see this my will performed desiringe them that he would have an eye over my wife and children to be as fathers and freindes to them; Allsoe to have a speciall eye to my man Robert wch hathe not so approved himselfe as I would he should have done.

This is a Coppye of Mr Mullens his Will of all particulars he hathe given. In witnes whereof I have sett my hande

John Carver, Giles Heale, Christopher Joanes

The will was carried back to England for probate by the Mayflower on her return voyage (ibid.):

In the month of July Anno Domini 1621. On the 23d day issued a commission to Sarah Blunden, formerly Mullins, natural and legitimate daughter of William Mullins, late of Dorking in the County of Surrey, but deceased in parts beyond the seas, seized &c., for administering the goods, rights and credits of the said deceased, according to the tenor and affect of the will of the said deceased because in that will he named no executor. In due form &c. swears

Mullins's will was discovered in the late 19th century by Henry F. Waters and published as part of his series, "Genealogical Gleanings in England," in NEHGR, 42:62-63. The will proves that William died before his wife, son, and servant, who are all mentioned in the instrument, and that Alice and Joseph were still alive when the Mayflower sailed, or else Gov. Carver would have annexed a statement regarding the deaths of two legatees. The date of the copy of the will also proves that the Mayflower did not leave New England until after 2 April 1621. The probate record proves that William Mullins resided at Dorking, co. Surrey.

In 1612 William Mullins bought a holding in Dorking with a house and an acre and a half of land and outbuildings between West Street and Back Lane (now Church Street) for £122 and took over a mortgage of £200. He sold this to Ephraim Bothal in May 1619 for £280 (Dorking pamphlet).

On 29 April 1616, a warrant was issued to bring "one William Mollins before their Lordships." On 1 May he appeared before the Privy Council and was continued technically in their custody "untill by their Honours' order hee be dismissed." While the reason for his arrest is not given, it was most probably associated with the religious controversies of that time. The fact that he was a Dissenter may explain why William Mullins' marriage record is not found in the Parish Register for Dorking, nor are the baptisms of his children.
Claims of Huguenot and Plantagenet ancestry for William Mullins are entirely unsupported (see MD, 44:39-44).

WILLIAM MULLINS (John,A), born about 1572 (estimate only, based on marriage of parents); died at Plymouth, New England, 21 February 1621, the date he made his nuncupative will (Prince, 184).

He married ALICE ----, d. at Plymouth, "winter 1621" after 2 April 1621 (when copy of husband's will was made). Alice's maiden name is not known. Claims that she was Alice Atwood, daughter of of Nicholas Wood-Atwood and Olive Harman, derive from a mistake published by Elijah Francis Atwood (author of Ye Atte Wode Annals and article on the Atwood family in the Boston Transcript's genealogical column), which he later discarded when chronological evidence proved the connection could not be correct. Likewise, the source for the entry in Clarence Almon Torrey's New England Marriages Prior to 1700, which lists Alice's surname as "[Poretiers]?," cannot be found.

Because we have no marriage date for William and Alice and no baptismal dates for the children, we cannot prove that Alice was the mother of his children, but in the absence of other evidence, we are assuming that she was the mother of all the children.

All of the above is quoted verbatim from Esther Littleford Woodworth-Barnes, Mayflower Families, Vol. 16, Part 1 - Family of John Alden, (General Society of Mayflower Descendants, Plymouth Massachusetts, 1999).

Notes for Myles Standish:
STANDISH The surname Standish is derived from an ancient parish of Lancashire, England, still known as Standish, the seat of the family for many centuries. The earliest recorded ancestor is Thurstan Standish, or de Standish, of the reign of Henry III. He inherited lands from his mother, Margaret de Standish, daughter and co-heiress of Robert de Hulton. The Standish family of Duxbury, county Lancaster, was descended from Hugh de Standish, through his son Ralph and grandson Hugh, who was living in the reign of Edward I. The coat-of-arms of the Lancashire families: Azure three standing dishes two and one argent. Crest: A cock argent combed and wattled gules. Another and perhaps even older coat-of-arms is also given in Burke's Armory: Argent a saltire within a bordure gules. To this Lancashire family Myles Standish, the immigrant, doubtless belonged, though his ancestry in England has not been definitely traced. [New England Families Genealogical and Memorial: Third Series, Volume IV, page 1921]
=============================================

Myles Standish was probably born on the Isle of Man or at least his ancestors lived there. There is much recent re-search on his ancestry based on the claim in his will to various lands. These lands belonged to the Standish family living on the Isle of Man.

Nathaniel Morton wrote "In his younger time he went over into the Low-contreys, and was a souldier there and came acquainted with the Church of Leyden, and came over into New-England with such of them as at the first set out for Planting of the Plantation of New-Plimoth, and bare a deep share of their first Difficulties, and was alwayes very faithful to their Interest."

He was the Captain and leader of the Plymouth Colony military forces from the first and continuously until his death in 1656.

He is first mentioned as an Assistant 1 Jan. 1632-3, but was probably an Assistant before then. He frequently held that position up to the year he died. He was first elected Treasurer in 1644 and was frequently elected to that office up to 1655. On 3 May 1653 he was appointed Deputy Governor in the absence of the Governor.

He was one of the first to settle in that part of Plymouth Colony that was to become Duxbury and lived there the rest of his life.

At his death he had a large nunber (for those times) of books on a wide range of subjects.

According to William Hubbard's history "Captain Standish ... never entered the school of our saviour Christ, or of John Baptist, his harbinger."

Captain Myles Standish and his wife Rose came on the "Mayflower." His second wife Barbara came over in 1623 on the "Anne."

Bradford's account says "Captain Standish his wife dyed in the first sicknes; and he maried againe, and hath 4 sones liveing, and some are dead."

In the 1623 Division of Land, Capt. Myles Standish received 2 acres and Mrs. Standish received one acre. This proves he had married Barbara by this time. In the 1627 Division of cattle Capt. Standish is listed with wife Barbara and children Charles, Alexander and John.

On 2 July 1638 Captain Myles Standish was granted 300 acres of uplands.

Myles Standish is listed as Capt. Standish in the 1643 list of Duxbury men 16-60 able to bear arms. This implies he was born after Aug. 1583. His son Alexander is also in the same list.

On 9 May 1654 Capt. Myles Standish sold to Capt. Tho-mas Willett his purchaser's right at Sowamsett, Mattapoisett and places adjacent. Mrs. Barberye Standish consented to the deed.

The will of Captaine Myles Standish Sr. of Duxburrow, dated 7 March 1655/6, proved 4 May 1657, mentions dau. Lora Standish, deceased; Mary Standish "my Daughter in law" de-ceased; wife Barbara Standish; son Josias Standish "upon his marriage"; sons Alexander, Myles, Josias and Charles Standish; Marcye Robinson; servant John Irish Jr.

The inventory of Elizabeth Hopkins dated 6 Oct. 1659 mentions "a smale matter in Mrs. Standishes hand." This is the last known reference to Barbara.

[Robert S. Wakefield, compiler, Mayflower Families, Vol. 14 - Family of Myles Standish, (General Society of Mayflower Descendants, Plymouth Massachusetts, 1997.)]
================================================

A lot of research has been done on the ancestry of Myles Standish, yet nothing conclusive on his parents have been found. G.V.C. Young has suggested Myles Standish's great-grandfather was Huan Standish of the Isle of Man. However, recent research has tended to undermine this conclusion, and new discoveries are currently being made which could very well disprove the Isle of Man origins altogether.

Thomas Morton of Merrymount, in his 1637 book New England's Canaan, mentions that "Captain Shrimp" was bred a soldier in the Low Countries, and Nathaniel Morton wrote in 1669 that Standish was from Lancashire. The will of Myles Standish mentions numerous lands both in Lancashire and on the Isle of Man.

The maiden names of Myles Standish's wives Rose and Barbara are not known. Rose died on 29 January 1620/1 at Plymouth, and wife Barbara arrived on the ship Anne in July 1623. By the time of the 1623 Division of Land, Myles and Barbara were already married. This probably suggests a marriage arranged by Standish, to a Barbara he either knew from home or from his stay in Leyden. There is absolutely no evidence at all to suggest Barbara's maiden name was Mullins, as is sometimes claimed, nor that either Rose or Barbara were his cousins as occasionally claimed. There is also no evidence to suggest Myles Standish pursued Priscilla Mullins, as in the Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem, "The Courtship of Myles Standish". This poem was intentionally fictional and should be considered as such. Myles Standish would have been about 39 and Priscilla about 18--an unlikely couple.

Myles Standish started his military career as a drummer, and eventually worked his way up and into the Low Countries (Holland), where English troops under Heratio Vere had been stationed to help the Dutch in their war with Spain. It was certainly here that he made acquaintance with the Pilgrims at Leyden, and came into good standing with the Pilgrims pastor John Robinson. Standish was eventually hired by them to be their military captain.

Captain Standish lead most of the first exploring missions into the wintery surroundings at Cape Cod looking for a place to settle. He was elected military captain, and organized the Pilgrims defenses against the Indians, as well as protect the Colony from the French, Spanish, and Dutch. In 1622 he led an expedition to save the remaining members of the Wessagusett Colony and killed several Indians who had led the plot to kill all the Englishmen at that Colony.

Standish befriended an Indian named Hobomok, just as Bradford befriended Squanto, and the two lived out their lives very close to one another. Hobomok was a warrior for Massasoit, and the two "military men" probably understood one another better than most.

So much could be written about Myles Standish. But here are a few selections from what contemporaries had to say about him, both the good and the bad.

William Bradford on Myles Standish:

But that which was most sad and lamentable was, that in two or three months' time half of their company died, especially in January and February . . . So as their died some times two or three of a day in the foresaid time, that of 100 and odd persons, scarce fifty remained. And of these, in the time of most distress, there was but six or seven sound persons who to their great commendations, be it spoken, spared no pains night nor day, but with abundance of toil and hazard of their own health, fetched them wood, made them fires, dressed their meat, made their beds, washed their loathsome clothes, clothed and unclothed them. . . . Two of these seven were Mr. William Brewster, their reverend Elder, and Myles Standish, their captain and military commander, unto whom myself and many others were much beholden in our low and sick condition.

William Hubbard, c1650 in his The General History of New England, writes of Standish:

Capt. Standish had been bred a soldier in the Low Countries, and never entered the school of our Savior Christ, or of John Baptist, his harbinger; or, if he was ever there, had forgot his first lessens, to offer violence to no man, and to part with the cloak rather than needlessly contend for the coat, though taken away without order. A little chimney is soon fired; so was the Plymouth captain, a man of very little stature, yet of a very hot and angry temper. The fire of his passion soon kindled, and blown up into a flame by hot words, might easily have consumed all, had it not been seasonably quenched.

Thomas Morton of Merrymount, in his New England's Cannan describing Standish, and his own arrest which was carried out by Standish (1637):

. . . But mine Host [i.e. Thomas Morton] no sooner had set open the door, and issued out, but instantly Captain Shrimp and the rest of his worthies stepped to him, laid hold of his arms [guns], and had him down . . . Captain Shrimp, and the rest of the nine worthies, made themselves, (by this outrageous riot,) Masters of mine Host of Merrymount, and disposed of what he had at his plantation.

Nathaniel Morton in his New England's Memorial (1669) wrote of Myles Standish's death in 1656:

This year Captain Miles Standish expired his mortal life. . . . In his younger time he went over into the low countries, and was a soldier there, and came acquainted with the church at Leyden, and came over into New-England, with such of them as at the first set out for the planting of the plantation of New-Plimouth, and bare a deep share of their first difficulties, and was always very faithful to their interest. He growing ancient, became sick of the stone, or stranguary, whereof, after his suffering of much dolorous pain, he fell asleep in the Lord, and was honourably buried at Duxbury.

Conspiratorial letter of John Oldham, intercepted by William Bradford:

Captain Standish looks like a silly boy and is in utter contempt.

Edward Winslow, in Good News From New England describing an retaliatory military expedition, relating to an Indian conspiracy Massasoit had alerted the Pilgrims to (1624):

Also Pecksuot, being a man of greater stature than the Captain, told him, though he were a great Captain, yet he was but a little man; and said he, though I be no sachem, yet I am a man of great strength and courage. These things the Captain observed, yet bare with patience for the present. . . . On the next day he began himself with Pecksuot, and snatching his own knife from his neck, though with much struggling, killed him therewith . . . Hobbamock stood by all this time as a spectator, and meddled not, observing how our men demeaned themselves in this action. All being here ended, smiling, he brake forth into these speeches to the Captain: "Yesterday Pecksuot, bragging of his own strength and stature, said, though you were a great captain, yet you were but a little man; but today I see you are big enough to lay him on the ground."

Generation No. 10

       512. Gysbert de Lannoy, born 1545 in Tourcoing, France (Source: Ruth Ellsworth Richardson, Samuel Richardson and Josiah Ellsworth, (Privately Published. 1974), p. 297.); died Abt. 1596. He was the son of 1024. Jean de Lannoy and 1025. Jeanne de Ligne. He married 513. Jenne.
       513. Jenne

Notes for Gysbert de Lannoy:
The parents of Philippe de Lannoy are:

Jan de Lannoy (ca 1570-1604) and
Marie Mahieu (ca 1580-1650)

The parents of Jan de Lannoy are:

Gysbert Lano [sic] (ca 1549-1596) and
Jenne _____ (?-?)

Philippe had one known sibling, Jenne, born ca 1601 in Leiden, Holland. There may have been older siblings as well, but the baptismal records of the Walloon Church don't begin until 1599.

Philippe is thought to be the nephew of pilgrims John Carver and Francis Cook, the latter being present at Philippe's baptism in Leiden on 6 Nov 1603.

No ancestry beyond this point has yet been established with any degree of reliability. You may wish to consider contacting other Delano researchers via the Delano Kindred (http://www.delanoye.org/), who may have additional information.
