From https://www.werelate.org/wiki/Person:Katherine_Elithorpe_%281%29

Coddington, John Insley, "Katherine (Elithorpe) (Constable) Miles Ancestress of Certain Miles and Street Families", in The American Genealogist (TAG). (Donald Lines Jacobus, et.al.), 31 [1954] : 24-29.

Katherine Elithorpe, successively the wife of Rev. Marmaduke Constable, Rector of Everingham, co. York, and second wife of Deacon Richard Miles of Milford and New Haven, Connecticut, … was presumably born at Holme-on-Spalding-Moor, co. York, but the date of her baptism must fall in the gap in the Registers of Holme, which extends from 1601 through 1627. She died at Wallingford, Conn., 27 Jan. 1687 [1687/8], "aged 95," according to the Wallingford Vital Records, but since ages assigned to old people in the seventeenth century were very frequently exaggerated, Mr. Jacobus thinks it more probable that she was aged 86 or less at death, and that she may have been born in or soon after 1601. Her parentage can not at present be established owing to the absence of baptismal records and the lack of requisite wills. It is possible, however, that she was a daughter of the widow Katherine Elithorpe, whose missing will was proved 12 March 1633 … who left a son Thomas and daughters Katherine and Mary, but absence of proof must be stressed. It is also possible, even probable, that Katherine was a sister of Thomas Elithorpe, who was born at Holme-on-Spalding-Moor about 1601-1605, came to New England in or soon after 1638, settled at Rowley, Mass., and died there about April 1654.
