About Rebecca Roberts (Hilton)

It has been Roberts family tradition to believe that Rebecca was the sister of Edward Hilton, though there is no contemporary evidence to this effect. Since Thomas Roberts came to New England between 1623-1627 with Edward and Wiliam Hilton; was permanently settled at Dover Point by 1628; and married Rebecca 1625-1629, it is plausible that Rebecca was a Hilton (see Jacobsen, p. 2, 21; Piscataqua Pioneers, p. 363). The Hilton surname, therefore, should be seen as possible and consistent with tradition, but not based on any better evidence.

Edward Hilton and his brother, William, also did business with the Winslows of Worcestershire, who had immigrated to Plymouth in 1621, and so Rebecca could have met Thomas Roberts through mutual acquaintance with the Winslows.
