About Elizabeth Seaver (Ballard)

Ben M. Angel notes: There have been several attempts to place this person's birth location as Roxbury, presently located in the southern part of Boston. Unless this person is Native American, this person's birth in 1613 could not possibly taken place in Roxbury. The Winthrop Fleet (carrying the founders of English settlements within the area) did not set sail from England until 1630, and of course the English colony at Plymouth was not founded until 1620. The fact that someone may have died at a given location does not mean that the person was in fact born at that location. Please verify your assertions, and leave the space blank if there is no other data showing exactly where the person was born.

Winthrop Society records indicate Elizabeth resided in Roxbury after coming here in 1633. http://www.winthropsociety.com/settlers/b-data.htm


From http://www.genealogy.com/users/s/e/a/Randy-Seaver/FILE/0030page.html:

Parents of Elizabeth Ballard not positively identified. Since she arrived in New Eng c1633 & m 1634, she likely was c18 in 1634, indicating birth yr c1616. Several databases indicate she was dtr of Hugh & Maria (Prosser) Ballard, who m 1622 in St Martin-in-Field, London, Eng. They had dtr Elizabeth, christened in 1628. LDS Ancestral File ascribes birth yr 1613 to this Elizabeth, which means Hugh Ballard was c16 yrs old & Maria Prosser c12 yrs old. Likely Elizabeth, dtr of Hugh & Maria (Prosser) Ballard, is NOT Elizabeth m Robert Seaver, Roxbury MA, 1634.
