Notes:

We know that in "English Ancestry and Homes of the Pilgrim Fathers" by Charles E. Banks, she was called Mrs. Ellen Newton, widow, when at age 25, in the year 1623, she emigrated from England to America on the ship Anne. By the time of the 1627 division of land and cattle in Plymouth, MA, she was married to John Adams who came from England to Plymouth, MA, in the Fortune in 1621. John Adams died in 1633 leaving his widow, Ellen, and at least one son, James Adams.

Mrs. Ellen Newton arrived at Plymouth abt. July 10, 1623 on the "Anne", Wm. Pierce, Master (Banks: "English Ancestry and Homes of the Pilgrims"; also, Banks: "Planters of the Commonwealth"; also, Bradford: "History of Plimmoth Plantation, I, 314-). She subsequently m. John Adams who died in 1633. In June, 1634, she m. Kenelm Winslow ("Family of John Adams of Plymouth", NEHGR 33:410). It is thought that Ellen/Elinor may have been the daughter of Peter Worden, Sr. who died at Yarmouth, Mass. in 1638. It is, however, clear ??? that she was married 3 times (Newton, Adams, Winslow).

Came to Plymouth on the ship "anne" 1623 the Anne was the second (or third, unclear) ship to the Plymouth Colony and also bore the wives and children of many of the settlers. The ship Anne arrived in Plymouth in July, 1623 accompanied by the Little James, bringing new settlers along with many of the wives and children that had been left behind in Leyden when the Mayflower departed in 1620.

Said to be the daughter of Peter Wordon, Sr. Came on the Anne, in 1623. Another place she is said to have come on the Fortune in 1621, and was widow of John Adams, and married second Kenelm Winslow. Both come from Hanks, The English Ancestry of the Pilgrim Fathers, p. 105, 119. -------------------- Life in New England: John Adams came to Plymouth Colony aboard the Fortune in November 1621. Ellen Newton (also called Helen and Elinor) arrived in the summer of 1623, either aboard the Anne or Little James. The division of cattle of May 1627 listed “John Adams”“Eliner Adams” and “James Adams;” i has therefore long been assumed that John married Ellen Newton as she was the only woman of that name in the colony. The family stayed in Plymouth where John became a freeman. Family: John Adams married Ellen Newton about 1625 in Plymouth. They had three children before his death in 1633.

The family last appeared in the Plymouth records April 8, 1657, and they may have moved to Massachusetts Bay Colony.
