"To summarize in brief our knowledge of the life of our first ancestor as conveyed by records and by inference we may say that he was born probably between 1620 and 1625 in England whence he came as a youth or a young man perhaps just of age to make a home for himself in America. He landed about 1643, probably at Boston, being then unmarried, but about 1646 acquired a wife at Braintree where they had seven children. She died in 1658-9, and a few months later he married a second wife and settled in Billerica, Mass., where he had four more children and died 27 July 1708, probably aged about eighty-eight years. He married first, about 1646, Mary *; she had seven children and died either late in 1658 or early in 1659.
. . .
He married secondly, in 1659, Elizabeth , whose parentage is unknown; she had four children and died in Billerica, 17 Jan. 1699/1700.
