Comments

According to THE GREAT MIGRATION BEGINS, Vol. 2, pp. 1354-1357, my ancestor Thomas Oliver came 1632 on the William & Frances with his (3rd) wife Anne (d. 1635) and children 3-9, namely: John, Peter, Nathaniel, James, Abigail, Samuel and Daniel. Their origins in the village of Thorpe Achurch, Northamptonshire, were discovered a few years ago by genealogist Leslie Mahler -see article in N.E. Hist. Gen. Register..
