  • (II) John (2) Bill, son of John (i) Bill, was the immigrant ancestor, according to the researches of the author of the Bill genealogy. With his wife Dorothy he came to this country before 1635. Their children, John, aged thirteen, and Marie, aged eleven years, came to Boston in 1635, John in the ship "Hopewell' and Marie in the ship "Planter." John Bill died in 1638, and a month later Richard Tuttle became responsible to the town for Dorothy Bill, widow, "sojourner at his house" and "for anything about her." It is believed that she was Tuttle's sister. From John Bill all of the surname in this country are descended.
