Furber Family Genealogy Forum
To anyone who can straighten me out,
I can't fit Esther STARBUCK in any place, this is what I have:
William 1 FURBER (Capt) b c 1614 England, d bef 1699 came to NE in 1636 on Angel Gabriel
m by 1646 in Dover, NH Elizabeth CLARK b c 1629
Hannah 2 b c 1645, Dover NH m Roger PLAISTED, Jr.
Elizabeth 2 b c 1644, Dover m 9 Nov 1664 John 2 DAME
William 2 (Lt) b c 1646, Dover (see below)
Bridget 2 b c 1660, Dover m Thomas BICKFORD
Jethro 2 b c 1662 m Amy COWELL
Susannah 2 b 5 May 1664, Newington, NH d 1731/2 m c 1684 John BICKFORD
Esther 2 living in 1716
IS THIS THE WM WHO MARRIED ESTHER STARBUCK? If she was born c 1636 then she was 8 or 9 when their first child was born. The children listed for Wm ? and Esther are part of the children of William 1, but if she married H. VARNEY and had a child with him in 1670 and another probably before that, what happened to poor Wm 1 who didn't die until about 1699?
William 2 FURBER (Lt) b c 1646, Dover; d 14 Sep 1707 m (1st) Elizabeth ______. (2nd)13 Aug 1694 Elizabeth (Heard) NUTE (wid of John) b 15 Sep 1653, d 9 Nov 1705. (3rd) 1706 Elizabeth (Martyn) KENNARD
Children by first wife:
William 3 b 1672, Newington NH d 20 Mar 1757 m Sarah NUTE
Jethro 3 b Newington
Elizabeth b Newington d 18 Dec 1719
Joshua 3 b Newington
IS THIS THE WM WHICH MARRIED ESTHER STARBUCK? If she was born c 1636 she would have been 10 years older than he. It also poses a problem in that she married (2nd) Humphrey VARNEY and they had a child in 1670, and then who was the mother of Wm 3 born in 1672 if Wm2 didn't remarry until 1694? If Wm 2 had two wives after Esther, did they divorce before he married for the second time or was the 2nd marriage not in 1694 but sooner and he had no children with Esther?
It's 4 AM and I have been puzzling over this for a couple of days. Somebody - please help! Who is Esther STARBUCK?
