About Eleanor Luce

Eleanor Harley or Harlow (c1715/20-1787). Her ancestry is unknown. There are some speculations, but no evidence.

Tisbury VR shows Elenor Harley and Malatiah Luce, married 5 July 1738, and Elanor, w. Meltiah, [died] Feb. 18, 1787, in 73d y. It seems certain her name was Harlow rather than Harley. There are no other references to a Harley family in this area. Her daughter Mary's first child was Harlow Crosby (born 15 December 1768).

She might have been one of the Plymouth Harlows and therefore a descendant of Sgt. William Harlow. A genealogy of this family is given by NEHGR 14:227, does not show an Eleanor, but is undocumented and contains known errors. The Plymouth Harlows were closely connected with the Wests, a Vineyard family, and with the Holmes, one branch of which came to the Vineyard about 1757. Rebecca Harlow of the Plymouth family married 1730 Jabez Holmes. Rebecca's nephew Robert Harlow married 1749 Jean West, of Tisbury, and Robert's brother James married 1757 Jerusha Holmes, who was sister of Jabez.

FamilySearch shows Eleanor as a daughter of Robert Harlow and Susannah Cole, and therefore a sister of the Robert Harlow who married Jean West, and of the James Harlow who married Jerusha Holmes.
