    Notes:

    Note: Many gedcoms show that Esther/Hester Williams as the daughter of James Williams and Alice Pemberton. I, however, find it hard to believe that she is; given that her birth is about 1639 and James died in 1621. Further research is needed to be able to connect her to Roger Williams, as some claim.
