FOOTNOTES

 1  Listed as age 10 when sailed to America in 1635; this conflicts with a reported marriage date for his parents of Nov. 20, 1631.  The 1623 marriage date seems more likely--although the specificity of the 1631 date warrants further investigation.
 2  According to passenger records for the Defence, Francis French was aged 10, Elizabeth was aged 6, Mary was aged 2 and John was 5 months.  Their mother was 30 or 32 and William French was 30 years old.
