============

This Anthony was born in 1713 - and was born in Newbury, Essex, Massachusetts - he did not sail on the "Plantr" as some one has posted - the Passenger list of the 'planter" can be found here http://www.winthropsociety.com/ships/planter.htm = this is a start of the infromation for the ship and a list of passengers follows it There is ABSOLUTELY NO Emery's found listed on it!

Passengers of the Planter

Master Nicolas Travice Voyage of 1635

This table details the roll of passengers of the Planter, which sailed from London in mid-April, 1635, bound for New England. The ship arrived safe at Massachusetts Bay, although some of the persons listed below may not have debarked. The rolls represent persons who were ready to embark at the date of record, which often preceded the actual sailing by several weeks. Some may have decided not to sail. Some servants may have run away. And there usually was some loss of life among the passengers from disease and malnutrition during the passage.

This information was transcribed in the 19th century by James Savage, and later by Michael Tepper from records found in the Public Rolls Office, London......
