    Notes:

    "God's Infinite Variety - An American": WOODBURY - The name Woodbury is spedded Wodeberie, in the Doomsday Book (1086) and has been recorded with fifty-three different methods of spelling. Knights fees have been recorded for generations, and four coats-of-arms were granted, the earliest being in 1325, and the crest in 1484, but the family were entirely of the Saxon yeomanry, without Norman blood or any of the titles of nobility.
    Families in England requently took the names of the lands they occupied, abandoning their Norman names in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. In the parish of Woodbury, we find the "Damnerle de Wodebere"; also plain "de Wodebere," in all varieties of spelling on deeds and records at that time. Near the middle of the thirteenth cdentury the records show "Wodebere Court" in the parish of Blymtree, held with other lands by a line of de Wodeberes, "as a foef of the honor of Gloucester."
    Woodburys have been in many of the wars of England; one was prior of Worcester, a few years before the Reformation. Their name has been born by stout squires and doughty knights before the War of the Roses, but those who brought it to America had a keener quality of adventure and firmness of character.

    WILLIAM WOODBURY was born in County Somerset, England, about 1589. The parish register in South Petherton, in te southeastern part of Somersetshire, discloses the year of his marriage, the ame of his wife and the baptismal record of three of his children, Nicholas, William and Andrew.
    William Woodbury embarked for the colonies about the year 1630. He received several small grants of land in Massachusetts, near the "Old Planters" and proceeded to till his acres. In 1647 or 1648 he returned to England on business, as is shown from a letter addressed to him and one John Balch and written by "Tristram Dolliber of Stoke Abbas, County Dorset." In 1652 the smae gentleman conferred the power of attorney upon him and Samuel Dolliver, of Marblehead. In 1654 Wlliam acted as one of the plots for Captain Lathrop on the Port Royal Expedition.
    William Woodbury lived in Salem, Massachusetts, at various times and was a member of the church there. He was admitted a freeman of the Bay Colony, and in 1667, when an independent church was formed at Beverly, William Woodbury, Sr., was one of the original members. He was one of five witnesses to the Indian deed (1668) that the grandsons of the old Chief "Saggamore" George, made of the lands of Salem to that town. He and his sons, together with John Woodbury and the latter's son Humphrey resided for a while at Bass River, and founded the large families of Woodbury in that section of the country.
