  • EDMUND SCOTT born probably in Rattlesden, Suffolk, Eng., about 1530, buried there, 14 Aug. 1621, aged "about ninety-seven years." He married, probably about 1560, JOAN ___ , who was buried 15 May 1615, "an old woman".
  • Edmund Scott appears in the records of Rattlesden in 1569 as a "Questman", a parish officer. This is the first mention found of him, although the records begin in 1558, and as the baptisms of his two eldest children are not of record, he possibly came to Rattlesden about 1556 from some other parish. In 1588-89, he was a church warden and in 1593, he was a collector. In 1611, Edmund Scott, "Sr." served again as collector. His age at death was probably exaggerated.
  • Children, all but two baptised in Rattlesden:

  • Henry Scott grew up in Rattlesden, a yeoman farmer. After his death, his family continued to reside there until 1634 when they emigrated to America. His widow, Martha, aged about sixty (really fifty-six), his son Thomas and his family, his daughter, Ursula (Scott) Kimball with her husband, Richard Kimball, their children, and Kimball's brother, Henry Kimball, and his family, sailed in the Elizabeth of Ipswich, 30 Apr. 1634. This shipping list, given by both Drake and Hotten, is divided into two parts, those who took the oath of allegiance and those who did not, the latter being children under age.

Thomas Scott, the son of Henry Scott and his wife Martha Whatlock, was baptized on 26 February 1594/5 in Rattlesden, Suffolk County, England. On 20 July 1620 he married in Rattlesden

Elizabeth Strutt. This family came to America in 1634 and settled at Ipswich, Massachusetts. Thomas Scott's will was dated 8 March 1653/4 and was probated 28 March 1654, a few days later. This will gives 25 pounds to each of his daughters: Elizabeth, Abigail, Hannah, Sarah and Mary. The two eldest were to be paid with the year, the younger to be paid at age twenty-one or half the sum sooner at marriage.


From A Genealogical Record of John Spofford and Elizabeth Scott:

"She was of Ipswich and doubtless a daughter of Thomas Scott and his wife Elizabeth, who came over in the ship 'Elizabeth' in 1634, when nine years old. If so, she was thirteen years younger than her husband. This identity is confirmed by the repetition in her own family of the names of her parents, brothers, and sisters, Elizabeth, Thomas, Hannah, Sarah, Mary." -- Savage's General Dictionary.

_________________________________ The Elizabeth left Ipswitch, Suffolk, England mid April of 1634 with her master, William Andrewes (Andres), arriving in Massachusetts Bay.

04 Feb 1634 Henry Dade writes from Ipswitch to the Archbishop of Canterbury that the Francis and the Elizabeth with 60 men in each intend to sail for New England on about March 10 and he supposes they are debtors or persons disaffected with the established church. Note: These ships and nine others bound for New England were stayed but on 28 Feb allowed to proceed on condition that the passengers took the oath opf allegiance. Colham pg 111.

12 Nov 1634: John Cutting and William Andrews pray to be released from bonds of presentation of certificates, enclosing that passangers of the 30 May 1634 Francis and 30 May 1634 Elizabeth did not take the oaths.

21 Jan 1635: John Cuttinge, Master of the Francis and William Andrewes, Master of the Elizabeth, both of Ipswitch, have brought a list of all the passengers that went in their ships to New England in April 1634 with certificates of their having taken the Oaths of Supremacy and Allegiance.
