Mr. Walker, first name unknown was born, married and died in England. He married unknown Browne, Widow Walker with son James age 15 and daughter Sarah age 17 came to New England in April 1635 in the ship "Elizabeth" On the same ship we find Jo Browne age 40 and Richard Walker age 24 and William Walker age 15, who may have been cousins but probably not brothers of the other Walker's, they think that the widow mother came later, and was one of the first purchasers in the town of Rehoboth, MA. The name Widow Walker is in the list of those that who in 1643 in value of their estates for a pro-rated distribution of lands, his estate was valued at 50 pd.. Her son James estate was also valued at 50 pd., but he and Mr. John Browne forfeited their allotments, as they removed to Taunton, MA, and remained there. Mr. John Browne, evidently brother of Widow Walker, was a man of prominence. He settled in Duxbury by 1635, and was in Taunton in 1643. He was commissioner of United Colonies for l year, and died in Swansea, MA, April 10 1662. On 23 Nov. 1665 he gave his cousin John Tisdale a dwelling house, and a house in Taunton to John Tisdale and cousin James Walker, John Tilsdale's brother-in-law. Widow Walker's two children James and Sara were servants of Jonathan Browne a Baker and came to New England with him.

Sir James Walker, Elector of Suffolk married "Elizabeth.

Sir James Walker died about 1625, and his widow with her two sons James and Phillip and Daughter Sarah emigrated to America. Phillip seems to have come first, soon after the death of his father.

Sarah and James came in 1635, and "Widow Walker" in 1645. This "Elizabeth," spoken of above is "Widow Walker," spoken of by John Walker in his book "Widow Walker"

Elizabeth M. Browne married to Sir James Walker 1st and was Henry Grey's, 1st Duke of Suffolk's 6th cousin four times removed . Yes, the Grey family who tried to put their Jane Grey on the throne of England after the death of Henry Vlll. She served as queen of England for 9 days before Henry's daughter (bloody) Queen Mary took her rightful place, where she then put Jane (she was married to the eldest Duddley boy, brother to Robert Duddley, Queen Elizabeth's love) in the tower of London and beheaded her thereafter along with her Duddley husband.

I will be adding the royal family names and places to this site. Elizabeth and her brother John Browne were Puritains, this being againest the law was problem one, treason to the crown which was prodestent. Second, being of royal family and on wanting to leave London quietly they made up stories when asked questions about who they were on the ship "Elizabeth" that sailed from Southampton to America. Thus we find: Sarah Walker 17, servant to John Browne, baker in Cheapside, James 15, apprenticed to cousin of John Brown also of Cheapside and Phillip Walker, 15 coming with his mother "Widow" Walker, all says nothing about eho they really were. What a legacy and what a story they started in the new America!.

I live in London and have tried to seach these people down and to get to know why they left London and sailed to America. I am very pleased to have found the answers. .
