Notes:

\n
    \n
  • Will names wife Mary, children John, Elizabeth, Deborah, Daniel Pond in lieu of deceased dau Abigail and Sarah.
  • \n
  • Calls himself a mariner in two deeds. Harvard's steward also recorded wheat from Edward Shepard's vessel.575
  • \n
  • Connection to Violet researched by Lawrence Sheperd and ducumented in a series of articles in Heritage Quest in 1989.
  • \n
  • The baptisms for Violet and Elizabeth and the marriage to Edward are the only IGI events found with the name Violet connected to a Shepherd.
  • \n
  • Mistley and Erwarton are just across the river from each other - a river that leads to several major ports. Edward was a mariner, a master by 1648.
  • \n
  • An Edward Shepherd was master of the Samuell of Manningtree ~1624-1633, a small vessel used in coastal trade.
  • \n
  • Edward Shepherd was assessed on the tax rolls of 1636 in Lawford, Essex. Parish records for Lawford list Edward's children with father William and mother Violet, but there is no William that this could be. A search of nearby parishes for Edward Shepards revealed a birth record and connected wills in Elmstead, a parish in far northeast Essex.
