About Martha Parke (Chaplin)

Came from England in the Arabella in 1630

--------------------

Martha's baptism can also be found in the Semer parish register and her parents are given as William and Agnes. Her marriage to Robert Parke can also be found in the Semer register.

There is a strong indication that Martha, daughter of William was indeed the Martha who married Robert Parke because Anne Chaplin, Martha's stepmother mentions the Parke family in her will thus: "To Anne Parke the daughter of Robert Parke 50s at 21 or marriage & if she do not survive then to my godson William Parke, brother to Anne." Arch. Sudb. 9, Colman. Proved May 6th 1631. Transcript of will given in Muskett.
