Mathias Senshon Found.
Posted by: Jerome Lafayette Saint John (ID *****2034) Date: January 13, 2012 at 09:19:18
  of 1821

I have found a Mathias Senshon buried in December,1669, in Hackney, Shoreditch, which is in Eastern London:

Name:       Mathias Senshon
[Matthew Senshon]
Burial Date:       15 Dec 1669
Parish:       St Leonard, Shoreditch
County:       Middlesex
Borough:       Hackney
Record Type:       Burial
Register Type:       Parish Register

OUR Matthias also died in 1669 (March) in Norwalk. Since their is no grave in Norwalk for him, could his body have been shipped back to London for burial?

How long would the transatlantic passage have taken? Could the body have been properly preserved?
