About Judith March (Knight)

From http://home.comcast.net/~ld-artist/March/1600/HughMarch.htm

Sometime around 1651, Hugh March married Judith Knight as his first wife. Judith was the daughter of John Knight, a tailor from Romsey, Hampshire, England. The had come to New England aboard the ship James in 1635 and settled at "old" Newbury. Judith was the mother to all five of Hugh's children.

In 1653 he appeared before the court when his wife Judith was before it for wearing a silken scarf in public. In that case, Hugh displayed evidence that he "held Worthe in excess of 200". The case was dismissed

Traditional family stories say that the last time all the members of this family were together was at the funeral of their mother, Judith in December of 1675. After that, certain differences arose between Hugh and his son John March. These differences led to harsh words, and, from the time of his marriage in 1676 Hugh was not to have "a cordial father-to-son talk" with John.
