From Families of Old Fairfield by D. L. Jacobus:

"The estate of John Scott of Wallingford 8 Dec 1713 was ordered distributed in eight equal shares to Edmund, Samuel, George, David, Jonathan, and Robert Scott, Sarah wife of Roger Terrill and Robert Risdon...The six Scotts were brothers, sons of the first Edmund Scott of Farmington (prob. by his second wife Elizabeth (Fuller) Upson. They had a seventh brother Joseph who died at Farmington in 1708 and was prob. father of the John whose estate was distributed......"

disputed origins

This Elizabeth seems to be the same as her same-named sister. (FamilySearch shows them as the same person.)

Although Thomas Upson did marry an Elizabeth Fuller there has been no connection made between her and any of the Fuller families in the American colonies at the time she was living. Her parentage is not known.

In 1626, her possible parents were from a tiny population, called Fuller.

The connection should remain until proved otherwise. Clipping off the parents, that descendants were told for centuries was their ancestor is not the right action until we have proof that her parents were not Fuller.

Update June 2017:

Not the daugther of Capt. Matthew Fuller , she has been confused with Elizabeth Rowley who married Moses Rowley. Disconnected and given "parent unknown" place holders parents named Fuller.

Forwarded from a geni member:

"Thank you for your interest in the Mayflower Society. We have received your Preliminary Review Form and have attempted to determine the best previously approved lineage paper in our files that follows your proposed lineage from Mayflower passenger Edward Fuller. Upon consulting our Mayflower Families Through Five Generations, Vol 4: Edward Fuller book (published by The Mayflower Society), we find that the compilers advise that the Elizabeth Fuller who was a daughter of Matthew Fuller and Frances Hyde married Moses Rowley and not an Edmund Scott."

"We also checked our lineage files. Our lineage files are consistent with the Mayflower Families book and no one has ever applied for membership in the Mayflower Society through this Elizabeth Fuller and an Edmund Scott."
