This marriage is confirmed by a 27-Oct-1694 deed from Elizabeth [MD 15:251]. Note: There is no evidence to support the often repeated conjecture that her surname was "Stream." Elizabeth's surmane does not appear in any records and Stream was not a usual surname in East Anglia.

Elizabeth Washburn

Birth: unknown, England Death: unknown

Samuel and Elizabeth Packard are the progenitors of most of the 'Packard's in the USA. There have been questions surrounding the accuracy of published information, going back to Packard history first presented in 1840. This biography accepts as fact the probable conclusions presented by Karle S. Packard in Packard's Progress, Vol. 17 [Feb. 1991], pp. 9-12.

Elizabeth's "maiden" name is not known. There has been speculation, but there are no records to prove her birth surname.

Elizabeth married Samuel Packard in England. No record of the marriage has been found.

Elizabeth arrived at Boston 10 Aug 1638. The ship was the "Diligent". She came with her husband Samuel Packard and "a child". The child is probably Mary.

Elizabeth and Samuel had fourteen children. Packard's Progress makes the case for the birth order of these children and their approximate birth years, based on a study of the baptismal records, marriages, and wills. Only the birth of John was officially recorded. The first 12 children were born in Hingham. John and Nathaniel were born in Weymouth. None were born in Bridgewater. Mary - @1637 Elizabeth - @1639 Samuel - @1641 Hannah - @1643 Israel - @1645 Jael - @1647 Deborah - @1648 Zaccheus - @1650 Jane - @1651 Abigail - @1651 Deliverance - @1652 Thomas - @1653 John - 20 July 1655 Nathaniel - @1657

Elizabeth was made a widow by the death of Samuel on 7 Nov 1684 in Bridgewater, Plymouth county, Plymouth Colony. She is mentioned in his will.

Elizabeth married again, another widower named John Washburn. Elizabeth and John were married about 1685. John died on 12 Nov 1686 in Bridgewater, Plymouth county, Plymouth Colony.

Elizabeth died sometime after 27 Oct 1694. When and where exactly is not known, and neither is her place of burial.
