Unlikely to have been at Dover, New Hampshire at the time of birth (either 1631 or 1636), although a number of secondary sources insist that she was. Her father's travels to the New World appear to be documented in:

  • DARBY, son of John, tenth generation from Roger del Feld, b. Boston, Eng. 1610, came to Boston, Mass., 1636, removed to Exeter, N.H., 1638, and ten years later was at Dover, N.H.
