About Elisha Bisbee, Sr.

Elisha/1 Bisbee, was born in England by 1621.1 His wife was Joanna (–?–).2 Freeman of Plymouth Colony, 1642.3 "Was of Scit., and by occupation cooper."2 "In 1644 he kept a ferry where Union Bridge now stands," says Deane's Scituate.2

An 'Elisha Beesbeach' appears at Scituate in 1642 [PCR 2:45, 167, 168], and had a full life in that town; the surname is later more commonly Bisbee or Bisbey. He has frequently been included as a son of Thomas Bisbeech. The will of Thomas Besbeech and the chronology make this impossible.5'"
