About Gregory Baxter

Gregory1 Baxter. Gregory Baxter married Margaret Paddy of Plymouth, Mass. He died on 21 Jun 1659.

He emigrated in 1630 probably from Rowton, England in Winthrop's fleet.[ If truly from Rowton then probably some relation to the Connecticut Baxter family IF the ancestry given by Hon. J. P. Baxter turns out to be correct. (GFC Comment) ].

Children of Gregory1 Baxter and Margaret Paddy were as follows:

   * 2. i. Bethulia or Bethia2, born Jun 1632; married Samuel Dearing.
   * 3. ii. Abigail, born Sep 1634 at Roxbury, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Colony; married Joseph Adams.
   * 4. iii. John, born 1 Dec 1639 at Roxbury, Suffolk County, Massachusetts Colony; married Hannah White.

Resided in Roxbury 1630- Braintree, 1640 Massachusetts

Gregory Baxter Birth: 1607, England Death: Jun. 21, 1659 Braintree Norfolk County Massachusetts, USA

BIRTH: By about 1607 based on estimated date of marriage. DEATH: Braintree 21 June 1659. MARRIAGE: By 1632 Margaret _____ (assuming she is the mother of all his children). On 7 July 1659 Margaret Baxter is widow of Gregory (inventory), and she died at Braintree 13 February 1661/2. (In his will of 20 August 1658 William Paddy of Boston bequeathed 50s. to "my sister Margaret Baxter," and Savage says that this was the wife of Gregory Baxter. But Nicholas Baxter of Boston, mariner, also had a wife Margaret, as may be seen from deeds of 25 December 1661 and 12 December 1668. In the latter deed we learn that she had had an earlier husband, with whom she had had a daughter Mary who married John Bull. Since William Paddy and Nicholas Baxter were both mariners, and were in these years both of Boston, it seems more likely that William's sister or sister-in-law was the wife of Nicholas and not Gregory.)
