About Margaret Colwell (White)

Some on-line excerpts from an article by William B. Saxby Jr. in the American Genealogist report that in October of 1666 Thomas Walling was found guilty of assault on Robert Colwell and paid a bond of 20 pounds, but he failed to appear in court and forfeited his bond. It turned out that he had run away with Colwell's wife Margaret White, whom Colwell subsequently divorced.
