About Ursula Kimball

URSULA SCOTT (1597 - 1661)

Ursula Scott was the wife of Richard Kimball (1594-1675) of Rattlesden, Sussex, England. In 1634 they emigrated to America with their six children, settling first in Watertown (now Cambridge) and moving in 1637 to Ipswich, Massachusetts (see KIMBALL FAMILY).

Ursula was the daughter of Henry Scott of Rattlesden (d. 1624) and Martha Whatlock (b. 1568). Martha was the daughter of Rattlesden surveyor Thomas Watlocke (b.1520), who died in 1609 "a very old man," and his wife Johan (1546-1610), daughter of John Whatlock (

Thomas Whatlock was the son of a defferent John Whatlock (this one born in 1505) and his wife Agnes. Martha Whatlock had two brothers (Roger, b. 1561, and Robert, b. 1564) and a sister (Dorothy, b. 1572, d. 1574). She came to America aboard the Elizabeth in 1634, ten years after the death of her husband Henry Scott, with her son Thomas (b. 1594), daughter Ursula (bp. 14 Feb 1597) and Ursula's husband Richard Kimball, leaving behind a son,

Roger (b. 1604).Henry Scott, of Scot's Hall, Rattlesden(d. 1624), was the son of Sir William Scott and Mary Howard, daughter of Charles Howard (1536-1624), Lord High Admiral of England. Sir William was the son of Sir Thomas Scott of Scot's Hall (d. 1621) and Elizabeth Baker, daughter of John Baker of Sesinghurst.

Thomas was the son of Sir Reginald Scott (1538-1599) and his firstwife Emeline Kempe (some compilers erroneously associate Thomas with his father 's second wife, Mary Tuke).


If Richard married Margaret Cole in 1661 it seems unlikely that Ursula lived to 1676 as so many sources say. I have substituted date in FindAgrave entry below [ I wonder if there isn't another Ursula that is confusing things. see next entry by FTW [PJS]


Ursula may have been married to Giles Cowes and had two daughters

(from will dated 5 March 1674, probated 28 September 1675).
