who is progenitor of Durgins N.H.?

I have heard that some descendants of Durgins of New Hampshire believe the first Durgin from whom they descend is William Durkee of Ipswich. As a descendant of William Durkee and Martha Cross, who definitely had a family in Ipswich, MA in the late 1600's, I am very interested in the notion that this Wm might have fathered a different family up north. The person he was indentured to in Ipswich did own some ships, and could have had business in N.H., which at that time, was considered a part of MA colony.

Does anyone have definitive sources that might help clear this up? Were William Durgin of N.H. and William Durkee of Ipswich the same person?
