CORRECTION - FOBES/SOUTHWORTH by Robert S. Wakefield, FASG In 1840 Nahum Mitchell, in his History of the Early Settlement of Bridgewater (p. 162), said that William Fobes married Elizabeth Southworth, daughter of Constant Southworth, and the story was repeated in l849 by Justin Winsor in his History of the Town of Duxbury. Massachusetts, (pp. 258, 314). Like a snowball rolling down hill, this story has grown, adding two daughters along the way, and now has added The Mayflower Descendant to the list of publications making this statement (MD, 4l:l4l). ' The 27 February 1678/9 will of Constant Southworth named his daughter Elizabeth Southworth "provided she doe not marry William Fobbes" (Plymouth Colony PR, 4:1:l8-20). I believe Elizabeth honored her dying father‘s wishes and did not marry William Fobes. Samuel Gallup married an Elizabeth Southworth in Bristol, 12 May 1685 (Rhode Island Vital Records, [hereafter RI VR], Bristol:22). It was a search for the identification of this Elizabeth Southworth that led me to the solution of this problem. While there were many Elizabeth Southworths in that time frame, they are either too old, too young, or otherwise accounted for. The wife of Samuel Gallup had to be the daughter of Constant Southworth or else be a "stranger," the likelihood of which is slim.
