About Prudence Cox (Marston)

William Swain left a widow, Prudence (Marston) Swain and eight children. Prudence was the daughter of Capt. William Marston, b. 1592, Parish Great Ormsby-Norfolk, England. He was granted land in New England when he brought his family to the Salem, Newbury, Hampton area. According to the History of New Hampshire, Prudence was the 4th born child of William Marston and his second wife, Sabrina Page. (comment: likely incorrect, 2nd child of 1st wife) Capt. Marston came to Hampton about 1640. After the death of William Swain, his widow married Moses Cox(e), whose wife and son perished on the vessel with William Swain. These families were neighbors therefore knew each other well before the tragedy. Moses Coxe and Prudence Swain were married on 16 June 1658 and it is said they had only one daughter, Leah. Moses Coxe lived to the ripe old age of 93; he died 28 May 1687

Three volume set: I. Allanson to French, II. Gardner to Moses, and III. Neal to Wright.

The multi-ancestor compendia compiled and published by Walter Goodwin Davis is one of the major achievements of twentieth-century genealogy. These volumes authoritatively cover 180 families, all of Davis's colonial forebears plus nineteen English families in the immediate ancestry of American immigrants.

The Davis opus is undoubtedly the premier work for northern New England, and an often essential companion volume to the celebrated Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire, which it considerably expands, especially for many Essex County families with ties further north. Almost anyone with considerable New England ancestry--and as many as 100 million living Americans, about 40 percent of the population, have some colonial New England forebears--will descend from one or more, often a dozen or more, of the families herein.
