bullet  General Notes:

From Family Search Life sketch:

Robert Coles was born by about 1605, based on approximated date of first marriage. He came to Massachusetts Bay in 1630 & first settled in Roxbury. Moved to Ipswich in 1633, Salem in 1635, Providence in 1638, then Pawtuxet, & finally Warwick in 1653. He was admitted to Roxbury church as member #8, "he came with the first company, 1630," but excommunicated at some later date.
He died at Warwick between 27 April 1655 and 25 October 1655. (The settlement of his estate as published is dated 28 October 1654, but Robert Coles appears to have made a deed on 27 April 1655, and son John Coles says he signed an agreement on 25 October 1655, which would be three days before the Town Council meeting if were on 28 October 1655 and not 1654. Also, the deeds of confirmation made by the widow of Robert Coles all come within a few months after October 1655.)
He married (1) By about 1630 Mary _____; "Mary Cole, the wife of Robert Cole," was admitted to Roxbury church as member #34, along with many others who arrived in 1632, and Eliot notes that "God also wrought upon her heart (as it was hoped) after her coming to N.E., but after her husband's excommunication & falls she did too much favor his ways, yet not as to incur any just blame, she lived an afflicted life, by reason of his unsettledness & removing from place to place;" she died by about 1637.
He married (2) by about 1637 Mary Hawkshurst; she married (2) after 5 April 1656 and probably before 5 February 1656/7 Matthias Harvye of Warwick and Oyster Bay.
