About Faith Phillips

She came from Ipswich, England on the "Francis" in April 1634. She is listed among those passengers not taking the Oath of Allegiance and Supremacy at the Custom House at Ipswich, due to being under age. Her age is indicated as 15 years in the record.

Less than a year after her arrival at Plymouth, she married Edward Doty. In his "History of Plymouth Plantation" completed in 1650, Governor Wiliam Bradford refers to her as Edward Doty's second wife. The colony records contain no indications that Edward was married earlier and no clues to the identity of his first wife.

She and her husband had nine children, the youngest born less than two years prior to his death in 1655. In 1667 she married John Phillips, a widower, and moved to Marshfield where she lived until her death at about 56 years of age.
