[Flora McKee.FTW]

!LIFE: Wonder if she could be daughter of Rev Henry Dunster, son of Henry of

Barry Lancashire, England who came to Boston, MA in 1640 and removed to

Scituate, MA later OR daughter of Richard Dunster who is brother of Rev. Henry

and who was a Cambridge, MA in 1642. From "Directory of the Ancestral Heads of

New England Families" by Frank R. Holmes, 1923, pg. lxxii.

!LIFE: From "The Pioneers of MA" by Charles H. Pope, 1981, p. 147. The will of

Rev. Henry Dunster of Cambridge, MA dated 18 Feb 1658 and probated 21 Jun 1659

states his daughter Elizabeth is to be brought up by "my sister Mrs. Hills of

Mauldon" or "my sister Willard of Concord" in case of Elizabeth's mother's

death. He also gives to "sister Hills" and to "sister Willard". Believe that

this is probably RIN 200 but uncertain.

Note:

Possible wife of George Willard||

The Sears Genealogy (1890), page 44, states there is

a possibility that the wife of George Willard was Dorothy

Dunster, daughter of Henry Dunster and sister to Elizabeth

Dunster who married Simon Willard; also sister to Henry

Dunster, President of Harvard College.

The Willard Genealogy (1915), page 5, states there is

no record to support that Dorothy Dunster was the bride of

George Willard.

Similarly, The Dunster line in Holman's Ancestry of

Colonel Stevens does not include Dorothy.

Dunster, || Henry, Cambridge, first Presid. of Harv. Coll. a Lancashire man, s. of Henry of Balehoult, a seat in Bury of that Co. came in 1640, and resid. a short time in Boston, was of ar. co. 1640, but not of our ch. so that we may be sure he ws of ano. town prob. Cambridge bef. adm. as freem. 2 June 1641; was bred at Magdalen Coll. in the Univ. of Cambridge, had his degrees 1630, and 1634. Soon after com. he was made presid. 27 Aug. 1640, compell. to resign 24 Oct. 1654, on acco. of his opinion on inf. bapt. He was desir. to come to Ireland by the deputy Henry Cromwell and his coune. and £50 advance. for his passage, but he was wise eno. to avoid that evil, and d. at Scituate 18 or 27 Feb. 1659, where he preach. all his latter days; but his heart's desire was to be bur. at Cambridge, where, in his will, he says lay the remains of some of his babes. He names, as liv. two s. David, and Jonathan, d. Eliz. sis. Hills, w. of Joseph of Malden, and her childr. sis. Willard of Concord, and her childr. an cous. Faith D. His first w. Eliz. m. June 1641, d. 23 Aug. 1643; and next yr. he m. Eliz. wid. of Rev. Josse Glover, had David, b. 16 May 1645; Dorothy, 29 Jan. 1648; Henry, 1650; Jonathan, 28 Sept. or ano. acco. says, 26 Oct. 1653; and, after rem. from C. to S., Eliz. 29 Dec. 1656. Eliz. wh. at Cambridge they presume to have been his wid. d. in her 60th yr. 12 Sept. 1690, as the rec. plainly, but falsely, bears; for if it be so, she must have been only 14 yrs. old when he took her for his sec. w. and less than 9 yrs. old, when her h. d. on the ocean. Perhaps she was not mo. of Glover's ch. JONATHAN, Cambridge, s. of the preced. m. 5 Dec. 1678, Abigail Eliot, had Henry, b. 17 July 1680; and Eliz. 22 Feb. 1682. For sec. w. 5 Apr. 1693, he took Deborah Wade of Medford. The s. Henry had two ds. bur. at Cambridge; but in other parts of Mass. as well as in N. H. descend. of the long suffer. presid. remain; and Deane says that one of them did the presswork for his Hist. of Scituate. RICHARD, Cambridge 1642, br. ofHenry, of wh. no more is kn. A very curious letter of Mar. 1641, to him from his f. in Lancashire, is in 4 Hist. Coll. II. 191. Sis. of the Presid. were Eliz. and Mary, wh. successive. were ws. of Maj. Simon Willard, the latter surv. him, m. Joseph Noyes of Sudbury, and a third, perhaps, Rose, was [p.83] w. of Capt. Joseph Hills of Malden. One niece, Eliz. was w. of Benanuel Bowers; and ano. Faith, m. 12 May 1664, John Page of Groton.
