  • "Olde" Robert Self had two wives whose first names are known, but whose last names are speculative. These women are Jane Bean (c. 1635 – 1670) and Mary Antsy, the second wife (c. 1643 – 1713). There are a number of sons, among them Stephen, Francis, Robert Jr, Christian, William and John. (1)
  • Robert Selfe was born about 1630 (1655 first record or thereabouts - 25 years), we assume, in England. We believe he was first married to a Mary ______(), and secondly to Jane _______, born 1643(). Our first record of him in America is in 1665, the date of the patent of his 300 acres. With his death coming in 1717. (2)
