Hi Gail, Thank you for the message. You're right about the weather being better, but of course the shipwreck was in Aug., so you never know. I knew that William went to Ipswich for a year to work for John Cogswell and it even may be that he was indentured previously in England and came over with the Cogswell family. He settled in Dover(Newington, Bloody Point) in 1636. I don't have any info on his life in England or why he came over. His sister Temperence may have come along, married to another passenger named Bickford.
Coincidentaly, my mother's family is decended from Ralph Hall who settled in Exeter prior to 1638. He undoubted knew William Furber as they were selectmen and representitaves from their communities and even surveyed a boundry common to Dover and Exeter togeather. William Furber signed as a witness on the Wheelwright land deed to Exeter in 1638. Thanks, Robert Hall Furber
