About Deacon Edward Collins

Some of his children were born in England and some were born in Massachusetts.

Daniel, John and Samuel were born in England, then he and his family sailed to America about 1636 or 1637, because his daughter Sybil was born in Cambridge, MA in 1637, whereas Samuel was born August 12, 1636 in Framlingham, England.

Four other children appear to have been born in Cambridge, MA.
