1. WILLIAM ARNOLD1 died about 1616 in Hollesley, County Suffolk, England.

William Arnold of Hollesley, County Suffolk, named a son Thomas in his will dated 22 Nov 1616, when Thomas was still under age. Richard Arnold of London, goldsmith, in his will dated 8 Nov 1644, left a legacy to two cousins, Richard Arnold of Kelshall, County Suffolk [13 miles for Hollesley] who was a son of the testator's uncle William Arnold, and also to Richard Arnold of Killingworth, County Warwick, who was a son of his uncle Richard. These two nephews were to pay to their brothers and sisters except for Thomas Arnold who is now supposed to be in New England or some other part beyond the seas. The uncle Richard also had a son named Thomas but he wasn't in a location to be the Thomas who married Phoebe Parkhurst from county Suffolk. However, Thomas and Phoebe didn't actually marry until they were in Massachusetts, so Thomas could have been the son of either brother, Richard or William.

WILLIAM ARNOLD and KATHERINE [ARNOLD] were married in Kelsale County, Suffolk, England.1 KATHERINE [ARNOLD]1 was born (date unknown).

WILLIAM ARNOLD and KATHERINE [ARNOLD] had the following children:
