About Elizabeth Emerson

___________________________

  • Elizabeth Brewster Emerson
  • Birth: Jul. 26, 1584 Herefordshire, England
  • Death: Aug. 10, 1638 Ipswich, Essex County, Massachusetts, USA
  • Thomas Emerson was baptized on 26 Jul 1584 at Bishops Stortford, Hertfordshire, where Thomas Emershonne married an Elizabeth Bruester on 1 Jul 1611.
  • Mayflower passenger William Brewster was from Scrooby, Nottinghamshire. Under current UK postal codes, though physically in Nottinghamshire, Scrooby is listed as Doncaster when looking for it on a site like Google maps. The distance between Scrooby and Stortford is about 135 miles.
  • Parish records for Scrooby, Notthinghamshire do not begin until 1695. The claim that William Brewster had a daughter Elizabeth who was born in Scrooby on the same day as Thomas Daman was baptized goes beyond the highly unlikely to the purely fictitious as there is not one single piece of documentary evidence to prove it. In this country, William Brewster was part of the Plymouth community, while Thomas and Elizabeth Emerson lived 65 miles north in Ipswich.
  • William Brewster died intestate, with his estate being left to his two surviving sons. While Bradford did write of William Brewster, "His daughters which came over after him are dead but have left sundry children alive," he was likely only referring to Patience (Brewster) Prence and Love (Brewster) Collier, who have well documented and proven connection.
  • With no documentation to support the conjecture that Elizabeth Brewster could have been a daughter of William Brewster, it just leaves the geographic evidence which shows this to be unlikely.
  • The Mayflower Society does not show William Brewster having a daughter Elizabeth, nor does The Great Migration Begins.
