bullet  General Notes:

Evidently, upon the death of her husband circa 1645, she emigrated to New Haven with her four sons and a daughter to reside near her stepson, William Bradley. Leonard Bradley, drawing on a family testimonial of Mr. Zebul Bradley (born in Guilford in Jan, 1780 and a great grandson of her son Nathan) tells an account of that journey and testimonial as to the ages of the young immigrants, Nathan being 6 or 7 years old, Daniel 10, Joshua 8, Ellen 5 and Stephen 3 years old. There is no indication as to what might be the age of her stepson William in 1645.

27 May 1668: Married John Evatts, or Evarts, of Guilford.

30 May 1671: Elizabeth Evatts of Guilford made a deed to Roger Alling of New Haven conveying, with the consent of of other heirs of the Parmelee will, the house and lot in New Haven willed to her in her second husband's will.

13 June 1683: the oral will of Elizabeth Evatts, late of Guilford, was proved in the New Haven Probate Court (Book 1, p94)

Elizabeth came to America about 1645 with 5 young children, ages 3 through 10 to join her step-son William Bradley. Her husband had died in England and when she got to America she lived until 1653 until remarrying. She was married once again in 1668, having been a widow again for 9 years. 866
