Furber Family in America

William Furber, b.abt 1614, d. July 2 1694, he arrived on the ship "Angel Gabreil" on August 15, 1635 with John Cogswell of Westbury, Wiltshere. William was under apprentiship to John. Apprentiships are normally seven years, William's service expired in 1637-38. If this is true, then William worked under John in Westbury for about five years in the woolen business. John sold the woolen business to move his family to the Americas. The Angel Gabreil was wreacked in the Great Storm of August 15, 1635 at Pemiquid Point, Maine. William lived with John in Ipswich of the Bay Colony.

William establiahed in Dover Nek and Newington which was under the Dover Parish until the Newington Paris was established. Military rank of sargent aachieved in 1657 and lated captain. Unsure if this was of the local guard or the British Army.

Although we have assumed London as the birth place for William and his sister Temperance, absolute proof has not been established. Perhaps their parent also lived in Westbury.

William Furber and Mary Newbe were married on November 10, 1594 at St. Benet, Fink, London.
