  • Juliet Gayton of England has a lot of data on the English Fifields. The following data is derived from her research plus that of Glen Fifield of Logan, Utah, and includes the family that William possibly came from. Here are some pertinent excerpts (The entire report can be found at http://homepages.rootsweb.com/%7Efifield/engl0001.html#t1 ):
  • John Fifield (of Hampshire, England), born around 1544, married Gyllian, of Littleton, Hampshire, England, died 1610 in Headbourn Worthy, Hampshire, England.
  • He left a will on 19 Feb 1609/10 in Headborne Worthy, Hampshire, England.
  • He had a son named William (born about 1567), who had a son named John (born about 1589, died 1654/55). John left a will dated 5 Oct. 1653. John had a son, named William, who was named in the will. An interesting fact is mentioned in the document: "While the other children were in the area thereafter, William does not appear in the records of Hampshire after 1634, and is not mentioned in the wills of his siblings who otherwise mention each other. Bank's Topological Dictionary of English Emigrants to New England says William came from that area. Therefore the assumption that this John was the father of William..."
  • 'The record says of William: "William immigrated from London on the ship Hercules, John Kiddey, Master, which left London March 24, 1634 and Southampton April 18 with 12 passengers. It landed Ipswich MA in April. He became one of the original settlers of Hampton, NH in 1638 and died there in 1700 at 88 years of age. Records indicate that he had the confidence of his townspeople and other tories in settlement of affairs in dispute. He acted as Attorney, Constable and Sheriff in cases of record." (end of excerpts)
