NOTES AND CORRECTIONS

PARENTAGE 0F THOMAS SHEPARD of MALDEN, MASS. In The Registerm for January 1945 (vol. 99, page 81) I pointed out that although Thomas Sheperd of Maiden, Mass., was quite likely the son of the immigrant Ralph Shepard, there was no definite proof of such relationship.

Through the kindness of Mr. Thomas A. Burke of Cambridge, Mass., my attention has been called to a document which definitely proves the relationship.

In Middlesex County, Mass., Deeds, vol. 14, pages 562. 563 and 564, there is recorded an instrument of partition or division between William Power and Walter Power who are known to have been ions of Trial (Shepard) Power and grandsons of the immigrant Ralph Shepard. This record, dated 30 March 1708, recites (or. the said William Power and Walter Power have purchased a certain "of theire Two Couzens vizL Ralph Shepard and Jacob Shepard," by deed dated 5 Jan. 1708. The only Ralph Shepard and jacob Shepard who were living in this vicinity In 1708 where known to have been sons of Thomas Shepard of Malden. Therefore, when William Power and Walter Power referred to Ralph Shepard auid Jacob Shepard In 1708 as their cousins, it seems established that Thomas Sbepard of Maiden, the father of Ralph and Jacob, was an uncle of the Power brothers and hence a son of the immigrant Ralph Shepard. a relationship long suspected and indeed asserted by many, but never definitely proved until this document came to light.
Rochester, N. V. CHARLES SHEPARD.

ISAAC BULL (The Immigrant ancestor)

Our immigrant ancestor in the colonies was Isaac Bull, son of Edward Bull of Donnington, Gloucestershire, England. (This is in contradiction to the often repeated story that our line descended from Henry Bull, first Governor of Rhode Island.)

An Indenture found in a Bible handed down to her descendants by Hannah Bull, youngest child of Isaac Bull and his chief heir, gives the most authoritative information.

It was published in the Cleveland Herald on 17 October 1874, by Andrew Phillips, on the occasion of a Phillips family reunion. (Hannah Bull had married Daniel Phillips, a Quaker) and the copy of the indenture was followed by an explanation provided by a grandson of Hannah's.....

It was after the discovery of this indenture (dated September 29, 1668), which apprenticed Isaac Bull 'sonne of Edward Bull of Donnington'.....that one of Isaac's descendants living in Brookline, Mass., began searching for Isaac Bull's people in England.

Wills were found in county Gloucester - Edward Bull's at Donnington, 1697, and that of his brother John, of Longborough, County Glousester, in 1675. From Edward's will we learn that his wife's name was Elizabeth (Castell or Gisborne?), and they had four children, of whom Isaac was the youngest....

As Isaac was indentured probably at age 14 - the usual age - he was considered to have been born in 1654. His indenture would end in 1675.

Isaac was married in England to Mary (surname unknown). Their four children, all born in England, were: John, born 1677, married Mary Closson; Elizabeth, born 1679, married John Vaughn; Mary, born 1680 (died 4th of January 1725), married Henry Mowry; Rose, born 1682, married Francis Inman.

The first knowledge we have of Isaac in the New World is in a land record in Worcester, Mass. In 1686, Isaac Bull, a carpenter, was granted land in Worester and the same year he bought four additional lots. It seems safe to say that Isaac brought his family to the New World sometime between the date his father's will was proved (1682), and the date he was granted land in Worcester (1686).

When he left Worcester is not known, but in 1696 Isaac Bull, housewright, of Newport, Rhode Island, bought 110 acres of land in the northern part of the town at Providence. In 1700 he sold all but one acre. In 1704 he bought 1/4 of an acre. In 1706, Isaac Bull, millwright, brought 10 acres probably in Scituate, R.I., (one parcel of 7 acres and one of 3 acres, adjoining his homesite in Providence.) These are all the land transactions that have been found.

Isaac married twice. Isaac's first wife, Mary, died in 1713. He was married again on 02 March 1714 in Rhode Island to Mary Walling (daughter of James Walling) who was born in 1693. He lived only two years after that, dying in 1716 and leaving an infant daughter, Hannah.

Isaac made a will only twelve days before his death, which was acted upon by the Town Council of Providence, Rhode Island, on April 17, 1716, in which he named Hannah as his heir......His widow later married Joseph Cooke in 1719, and died about 1724.

14. THOMAS3 WEST (Thomas2, Francis1), thought to have been b. ca. 1687 and d. in Rhode Island as the result of exposure and disease contracted in the West Indies (BMV 3:501). From the diary of William Homes [Holmes] comes the following passage, "I have heard that Thomas West died lately at Rhode Island. He had some time ago undertaken to pilot a vessel to Boston and was forced off the coast by a storm and driven to Matinico [this has been assumed to be Martinique, although it is not clear from what port the vessel had sailed] and either the fatigue of the voyage or some distemper contracted on that island he was brought so low befre he arrived at Rhode Island and not long after he came on shore he died. His friends concluded that he had been lost in the storm (BEG 50:262).

On 29 Jan. 1712/13 he m. MARY PRESBURY (recorded in TVR 190 as Mary and in Edgartown (EVR 191) as Hannah). She was b. 28 Aug. 1694, the dau. of Stephen and Deborah (Skiffe) Presbury. (BMV 3:501).

Edward WINSLOW Sr. [Parents] 1 was born about 1570 in of Droitwich, Worcestershire, England, United Kingdom. He died 2 before 1631 in Droitwich, Worcestershire, England, United Kingdom. Edward married 3, 4 Magdaline OLIVER on 4 Nov 1594 in St Brides, Fleetstreet, London, England, United Kingdom.

Winslow Families of Worcestershire, 1400-1700 by Brandon Fradd  -   Fact and Fiction

Fiction 3: - EDWARD WINSLOW Senior was born on 17 October 1560. The origin of this appears to be the Winslow genealogy by David P. Holton published in 1877.[147]

Fact: - This erroneous information is not found in the chart in the Register in 1867, where the birth date of this Edward is left blank. Nor is any birth date found in a Register article on the Winslows in 1850.[148] The parish registers of Kempsey and the registers of the three parishes in Droitwich (St. Peter, St. Andrew, St. Nicholas) do not go back as far as 1560. There was an EDWARD WINSLOW baptized in Upton-upon-Severn in 1568, son of JOHN WINSLOW. He is certainly the right age to be the EDWARD WINSLOW who settled in Droitwich, but if so, we are left with no easy explanation for why EDWARD WINSLOW of Droitwich named one of his children KENELM and why Gov. EDWARD WINSLOW named his estate Careswell. The fact that EDWARD WINSLOW, Senior, married in 1594 suggests he was born about 1570.[149]

Fiction 4: - EDWARD WINSLOW Senior, of Droitwich, had two wives, and a son RICHARD by his first wife. Again, this appears for the first time in Holton, where the first wife is stated to be Eleanor, daughter of Sir [sic] Herbert Pelham of Droitwich [sic].

Fact: - The record is clear that JOSIAS, son of Gov. EDWARD WINSLOW, married Eleanor, daughter of Herbert Pelham, esq. The mysterious son RICHARD by this supposed first marriage is the one whose descendant sold Clerkenleap, according to Holton. Holton confuses the Winslows of Kerswell with the Winslows of Draycott. It is interesting, though, that even the new Dictionary of National Biography states that Gov. EDWARD WINSLOW was the eldest son of Edward Winslow by a second wife[150] The parish register of St. Peter's, Droitwich, argues strongly against a first wife, since EDWARD WINSLOW Senior made a point of having his London marriage recorded there. This is the only such entry. He also entered the birth dates of his children in the parish register along with their baptismal dates, showing a meticulous attention to detail. It is not credible that a man so focused on the details of his marriages and the births of his children would forget (or choose not) to include an earlier marriage and the offspring from it.

[147] Holton, 21.
[148] Register, Shattuck, 298.
[149] Stone, 46, indicates that the median age for marriage of men who were heirs (eldest sons) was 21 in the sixteenth century.

Wealthy owner of a salt boilery. m. possibly 20 Oct. 1594. His son Edward was Govenor of Massachusetts and a Mayflower passenger. His son Gilbert was also a Mayflower passenger.

THE EARLY WINSLOWS IN AMERICA
by Nedra Watkins Reese
December 1981

Edward and Magdalen Winslow of Droitwich, England, became the parents of eight children, five sons and three daughters: Edward born 19 October 1722 John, April of 1595; Elynor, April of 1598; Kenelin 29 April 1599; Gilbert, October of 1600; Elizabeth, March of 1601; Magdalen 26 December 1604 and Josiah, February of 1605. (1.)

The Winslow surname is taken from the town of Winslow in Buckinghamshire, England. The original family seat was in Worchestershire. (2.)

All five of the Winslow brothers came early to America. Edward, an ancestor of Winslow Farr, and Gilbert came on the Mayflower in 1620: John came on the Fortune in 1621. Both Kenelin and Josiah came before 1655.

A brief unconfirmed family history of Lorin Farr describes Edward as a well  to do Englishman, who traveled abroad after finishing his education. In Holland, he met and fell in love with a young Pilgrim girl. They were married, and he aided the little band of Pilgrims who were leaving for the New World. He gave money to help purchase the Mayflower, and he and his bride sailed on it to America. She died on the ship after arriving at Plymouth, as did many others. He later married a widow who had also been a passenger on the Mayflower.

John was married at New Plymouth to Mary Chilton, daughter of James Chilton, another passenger on the Mayflower, at some time prior to 1627. According to family tradition, Mary was the first female to set foot on the American shores. This may refer either to the landing at Cape Cod where the women went ashore to wash their clothes, or to the landing at Plymouth. John resided in the north part of Plymouth called Plain Dealing until about 1656. He was a merchant and held various municipal offices at Plymouth . (2. )

Magdaline OLIVER [Parents] 1, 2 was born on 4 Aug 1566 in Droitwich, Worcestershire, England, United Kingdom. She was christened on 4 Aug 1566 in of Droitwich, Worcester, England, United Kingdom. She died 3 about 1606 in Droitwich, Worcestershire, England, United Kingdom. Magdaline married 4, 5 Edward WINSLOW Sr. on 4 Nov 1594 in St Brides, Fleetstreet, London, England, United Kingdom.

They had the following children.

  M i Governor Edward WINSLOW was born on 18 Oct 1595. He died on 8 May 1655.

The inventory of the estate of his brother KENELM WINSLOW included "one half of the portion of land granted by the Court to him [Kenelm Winslow] and his brother Josias Winslow upon the account of their brother Gilbert Winslow as he was a first comer" [MD 24:42, citing PCPR 3:1:56].

On 1 June 1663 Plymouth Court acknowledged "Gilbert Winslow, deceased, who was one of the first comers, to have a right of land, and do allow his heirs to look out and propose to the Court some parcel of land that the Court may think meet to accommodate them in" [PCR 4:40].
