PLEASE READ, there are ERRORS here:
I would like to implore you to add a list of errors to this web page.
The publisher made two glaring errors in the entry for Samuel WILBORE:
1) Samuel WILBORE's first wife was Ann SMITH, not Ann BRADFORD, and
2) Samuel's son, William, was born in 1626 and died in infancy. The William WILBORE, born 1630, attached to him, here, is a cousin.
These corrections are documented in a series of articles by Benjamin F. Wilbour in the "New England Historical and Genealogical Record": 99(April 1945): 175-176, 112(April 1958): 108-118, 113(January 1959): 55-58, and 113(April 1959): 94-104.
Excerpts from these articles, and other documentation, are on a family group sheet at my web site:

*Please* add these corrections to the page because these errors are being promulgated widely by novice genealogists (e.g., at WorldConnect).
Samuel Wilbore, immigrant ancestor, married, in England, Ann, daughter of Thomas Bradford, of Doncaster, Yorkshire. The first record of him is in Dec. 1, 1633, when he and his wife Ann were admitted to the First Church at Boston. He was made a freeman in Boston, March 4, 1634. He owned much property in Taunton, Mass., as well as in Boston, and probably lived in both places. In November, 1637, he was among those banished from the colony on account of religious views. Acting on the advice of Roger Williams he went to Providence, where he and others who fled with him negotiated the purchase of the island of Aquednek, now Rhode Island, from the Narragansett Indians. Early in 1638 he removed, with his family, to the new location. In 1645 he returned to Boston. Later he built an iron furnace at Taunton, the first in New England. 1638 he was clerk of the town board, constable in 1639, in 1644, sergeant.
He married (second) Elizabeth, widow of Thomas Lechford. She was admitted to the church Nov. 29, 1645. He died July 24, 1656.
