About Elizabeth Hemingway


  • Putnam, Eben. Lieutenant Joshua Hewes, a New England pioneer, and some of his descendants,: with materials for a genealogical history of other families of the name, and a sketch of Joseph Hewes the signer. (New York, New York: J. F. Tapley Co.], 1913), 14.
    • Elizabeth Hewes, daughter of John Hewes of Royston, died in Roxbury, New England, 2 Feb., 1685-6, aet. 82, and was buried the following day.
  • Ralph Hemingway, in Anderson, Robert Charles. The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England, 1620-1633. (Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 1995), 2:909.
    • Elizabeth Hewes … she was probably the "[blank] Hues a maid servant" admitted to Roxbury church as member #102, at the end of 1633 or the beginning of 1634 [RChR 80]; she died Roxbury "Widow of Ralph Sr., 2 January 1684/5, age 82 years" and was buried as "old widow Hinningway" Roxbury 3 February 1685/6 [RChR 186]. (The burial as recorded by Eliot is a year, a month and a day after the date of death as given in the town records; Eliot's dates are usually more reliable. Pope, perhaps in an effort to resolve this discrepancy, erroneously states that wife Elizabeth d. Feb. 4, 1684, aged 82.)
