"This particular John Wood "the Mariner" has often been confused with 2 other John Wood persons in the early 1600s in New England. It is quite certain that he was NOT the John Wood who arrived in the Hopewell in 1635, with William Wood and Elizabeth Wood, Clark  p. 1. Nor was he the John Wood who came with Mr. Hull in 1633  p. 1. Clark  makes the excellent point about how both of these are far to young to have had a son born in 1620."
