The following is in my notes on Elizabeth Eames: Elizabeth Eames married Edward Wilder circa 1652 in probably, Hingham, MA. (21) Edward was born circa 1619 in Shiplake, Oxfordshire, England. Edward was the son of Thomas Wilder and Martha Keene. Edward died October 28, 1690 in probably, Hingham, MA, at age 71. Mr. George Lincoln says he was "stricken suddenly with malignant fever." As he was not mentioned in his presumed father's will, it must be supposed that if he was indeed a member of this family, that his mother was carrying him at the time of his father death. Mr. George Lincoln, in History of the Town of Hingham, Massachusetts Vol. ii, p.311-2, wrote that Edward received a grant of land in Hingham "containing ten acres, the 8th of Oct. 1637, 'in a place as convenient as can be discovered.' He subsequently received other grants from the town, including a tract situated next to that given to his mother, the widow Martha Wilder, in 1638, which was located at or near the junction of Main and Pleasant Sts., and inc. the est. now" (1893) "owned by heirs of Fearing Loring, deceased. He also owned all the land between Tower's Bridge and Wilder's Bridge ..." Rev. Moses Wilder wrote that he had been "associated with his mother in business relations until her death in 1652." Rev. Wilder notes that he was made a freeman in 1645, and suggests his birth year was 1624, based on the presumed age of twenty one then. Traditions of the family of Edward Wilder are found in a letter written by his great grandson, Edwin Wilder of Hingham, which Rev. Wilder quoted in his book. Edwin opined that all of the Wilders in Hingham, and in the state of Massachusetts, descended from Edward, except for those of a family in Lancaster (descendants of Thomas), "and we do not know of any relationship between us and them."
