About Elizabeth Stowe

People have confused Elizabeth Bigge, SISTER of John Bigge, who married John Scotchford with this Elizabeth Bigge, John Bigge's daughter, who married John Stowe and emigrated with him to Roxbury.

Erroneous husbands of Elizabeth Stow (Bigge)

I have detached the other husbands of Elizabeth Bigge, daughter of John. There is no evidence for them. I will reattach them if someone brings evidence.

Detached from erroneous husband Sir Thomas Compton. There was a Compton family who came on the boat with some of the Bigge family. See below also. This may be the source of this confusion.

Detached from erroneous husband William Henry Compton. Again, some relationship between the Bigge family and a Compton family.

Detached from erroneous husband Unknown Whitley.

Detached from erroneous husband John Scotchford, who was married to her aunt, also named Elizabeth Bigge.

Relationship between Bigge family and Compton family

See this discussion. There was a relationship, probably familial, perhaps cousins, but Elizabeth Bigge, daughter of John Bigge, had only one husband, who was John Stow of Roxbury.
