bullet  Marriage Notes:

See note.
Conflict with the LDS date of marriage (Aug. 1636) and birth of first child, Joseph (Nov. 1636). Both are no doubt wrong. Jacobus has no date for marriage, but c1635 for birth of Joseph. Shepard states that "Savage says of Watertown, Mass.,
probably came in the Abigal from London, in 1635, aged 27, with wife Francis, aged 26, and child Joseph, aged twenty weeks." The Abigal sailed in May of 1635. January or February of 1635 would seem reasonable for Joseph's birthdate.
Birth dates of the children are approximate and based on Jacobus. Hope was baptised in the First Congregational Society in October of 1641 following the baptisms in August of her sisters, Mary and Sarah. 915
