About Bridget Davis

The will of Henry Kingman, dated 24 May 1667, mentions "my daughter Holbrook ... my daughter Davis ... the children of my daughter Barnard". Various identification of these daughters have been conjectured. At one point a daughter Alice was proposed because of an "Alice Kinham" in the same passenger list, but that has been discarded by modern research, because it was not written with the family and because her age doesn't really fit into the family. This leaves Joanna, Anne and Bridget to match with husbands Holbrook, Davis and Barnard. Thomas Holbrook had a wife named Joanna according to birth records, so that seems to leave only the other two. Eastwood[1] and Anderson[2] arrive at different conclusions, but both answers are guesswork.

Anderson rightly points out that all mentions of Tobias Davis' wife call her Bridget. Not only the marriage record, but church records, and a deed selling part of his estate after he died. Therefore, Bridget married Tobias Davis and Anne married Mr. Barnard. To avoid having a 13 or 14 year old bride, Anderson speculates that Bridget was left off the passenger list by clerical error, there being a gap between Thomas age 7 and John age 2, which would suggest a birth about 1630, making her 19 when she married.
