About Elizabeth Aspinwall


"The principal founder of the town was William Pynchon, who was one of the assistant magistrates that came over with Winthrop. The town was incorporated on September 28, 1630, only three weeks after the incorporation of Dorchester. Originally the name was spelled "Rocksbury," and Barber, in his Historical Collections, says: "A great part of this town is rocky land; hence the name of Rocksbury." Joseph Warren, who fell at the battle of Bunker Hill, was born in Roxbury in 1740. Four days before his death he received a commission as major-general in the Continental army. William Heath, another major general, was also a native of Roxbury. After the organization of Norfolk County, he was appointed probate judge, which office he held until his death in 1814. By an act of the Legislature, approved on January 5, 1868, Roxbury was annexed to and became a part of the City of Boston."

Elizabeth died in 1706. At that time Roxbury was part of Norfolk County. It became part of Boston and Suffolk County in 1868. The place of her death should read: Roxbury, Norfolk County, Province of Massachusetts-Bay.
