About Elizabeth Dwight

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=jhmjr&id=I53794

Note: The parentage of Elizabeth, the wife of Thomas Thaxter, has not been established. Three seems to be general agreement that she was christened in Norfolk in 1615. Some have her as Elizabeth Coffin, parents unknown, and others as Elizabeth Coffin, dau. of Richard Cotten and Elizabeth Loveys of Devon. Although that couple had a dau. Elizabeth, b. about 1598, she apparently married Hugh Fortesque about 1623, and none of those who show the wife of Thomas Thaxter as this Elizabeth have sources of any value or explain how she, along among her family, made it from Devon to Norfolk. I show her parentage as unknown, but the data base contains information about Richard Coffin and Elizabeth Loveys.
