bullet  Marriage Notes:

Order of children in the Wakefield article is different than what is estimated in the GMB article; Wakefield order is as taken from mother's will. First child born probably in England, the rest either there or in Plymouth or Duxbury.
Marriage is given as 1624 in FS which is unlikely. Other references vary. Wakefield considers that the marriage probably took place in England where the first child was also likely born. 2017
