  • Notes 
    • William of Dorchester in 1635, came to New England in the Truelove, the latest of seventeen ships from London to Boston in 1635. He was age 44, with wife, Mary-34; and four children, Elizabeth 11, Sarah 8, Mary 6, and John 3. He removed to New Haven in season to be among first subscribers of the compact, 1639; and there had Jehiel, Hackaliah, and Eliasaph (twins), and Joseph. The mother of these latter children may have been a daughter of Robert Seabrook, who gave his grandsons, Jehiel Preston and Thomas Fairchild, jr. his home lot. William probably died not long after date of his will, 9 July 1647, in which he speaks of children of the first and second wife but does not enable us to distinguish them, and by conjecture, I should make of the children brought from England the greater part if not all by first wife three sons and three daughters refers to one as wife of Joseph Alsop, probably Elizabeth, to another as wife of William Meekes or Mix, probably Sarah; and we therefore, may well suppose that Mary was then unmarried. He owned est. in Giggleswick, Co. York, in the most W. part of the W.Riding. In that parish of the hill country were born the parents of the celebrated William Paley, and of its high school his father was master. Several towns in England are called Preston.
