Birth: 1620, England Death: unknown Massachusetts, USA

IMMIGRANT, 1635

DEPUTY TO THE GENERAL COURT FOR SANDWICH, 1666-1673

ASSISTANT TO THE GOVERNOR, 1666-1686 and 1689-1691

Edmund was baptized Nov 26, 1620 in Billingshurst, Sussex, England. He immigrated on the "Abigail" in 1635 with his father, siblings and stepmother. {Steve Bell's note: http://www.winthropsociety.com/ships/abigail.htm #152 matches him, and #135 Edward could be his father (#136 is Edward's wife) or there are others who are the right age to be our subjects father. http://www.olivetreegenealogy.com/ships/abigail1635.shtml lists "Edward" alongside three other Freemans. Groupings like this often indicated family relationships. A clerk could have easily written Edward instead of Edmond. This ship also brought John Winthrop, Jr. Let me say that we are not dealing in speculation here - both this man and his father were assistants to the Governor. http://www.immigrantships.net/v2/1600v2/abigail16351008.html#Freeman : Transcriber's Ancestors
