9455 William and his two servants died soon after their landing at Plymouth.

Excerpts from "Mayflower Families Through 5 Generations Vol 13 - William White":
William and Susanna White left England with son Resolved. At Cape Cod, on November 11, 1620 according to the old calendar, William was on of the 41 signers of the Mayflower compact. Two to three weeks later son Peregrine was born, the first English birth in Plymouth Colony. Susanna was widowed in February. She became the first colony bride in May, marring Edward Winslow, a "Mayflower" passenger who had lost his wife a few weeks before.

Excerpts from Mayflower Increasings:" William was possibly connected with the Whites of Sturton-le-Steeple, Nottinghamshire. He died during the General Sickness of the first winter. His wife was Susanna( ), origins and maiden name Unknown. Despite the oft repeated claim that she was the Anna, sister of Dr. Samuel & Edward Fuller, the known facts do not support this assumption. Sister Anna was born in 1577; Susann's first child was born c1615, her last child was born and she would have been 18 years older than her 2nd husband!!"

Excerpts from "Certain Comeoverers": In Governor William Bradford's list of "the names of those which came over first in ye year 1620, and were, by the blessing of God, the first beginners and (in a sort) the foundation of all the Plantations and Colonies in New England" is the following: "Mr. William White and Sussanna his wife and one sone called Resolved, and one borne on ship board caled Peregrine, and 2 servants William Holbeck and Edward Thomson."
William White is said to have been the son of a Bishop of the Church of England. If this be so, which I regard as extremely doubtful, it may have been Francis White born at St. Noets, Huntingdonshire, educated at Caius College, Cambridge, and after many perferments made Bishop of Carlisle, and Lord Almoner to the King (Charles I), then translated to Norwich, and in 1631 to Ely. In February, 1637-1638, he died in his palace at Holborn and was buried in Saint Paul's London. If your ancestor, William White was indeed the son of so distinguished a Church of England divine, he must have felt the difficulties of domestic revolt before he came into conflict with the established order of society and was forced into exile in Holland. He may well have deserved the description which some pious descendant gives us, to the effect that he "was one of that little handful of God's own wheat flailed by adversity, tossed and winnowed until earthly selfishness had been beaten from them and left them pure seed fit for the planting of a new world."
William White was one of the original band who left England in 1608 and settled in Leyden, Holland, in 1609. Of these pilgrims Bradford writes: "Being thus constrained to leave their native soil and countrie, their lands and livings and all their friends and familiar acquaintance, it was much, and thought marvelous by many. But to go into a countrie they knew not (but by hearsay) where they must learn a new language and get their livings they knew not how, it being a dear place, and subject to the miseries of war, it was by many thought an adventure almost desperate, a case intolerable, and a misery worse than death. Especially seeing they were not acquainted with trades nor traffic (by which that countrie doth subsist) but had only been used to a plain countrie life and the innocent trade of husbandry. But these things did not dismay them (though they did sometimes trouble them) for their desires were set on the ways of God and to enjoy his ordinances."
William White solved his problem by learning the trade of a "wool comber" as appears by the following entry on the town records of Leyden, translated from the Dutch: "William White, wool comber, unmarried man, from England accompanied by William Jepson and Samuel Fuller, his acquaintances, with Ann Fuller, single woman, also from England, accompanied by Rosamond Jepson and Sarah Priest her acquaintances. They were married before Jasper van Bauchern and William Cornelison Tybault, sheriffs, this eleventh day of February 1612." The religious ceremony was performed by their beloved minister John Robinson. Although the bride's name is given in this records as "Ann," and she is named in her father's will as "Anna," she was always called Susanna in later years in Plymouth.
Susanna Fuller was the daughter of Robert Fuller of Redenhall in the County of Norfolk. He was a butcher and as appears by his will which was probated May 31, 1614, he was very well off as to landed estates and worldly goods. It is evident from the provisions of the will that his son Samuel and his daughter "Anna," as he calls her, were in Holland, and that his wife Frances and several children, including a son Edward, were living with him in Redenhall. Three of his children crossed the Atlantic on the Mayflower: "Mr. Samuel Fuller and a servant----(his wife was behind and a child which came afterwards); Edward Fuller and his wife and Samuel their son;" (Bradford) and Susanna the wife of William White.
William White had a "Breeches Bible" (printed in 1586-1588) given to him in Amsterdam where the Pilgrims tarried awhile, in 1608, and by memoranda on the fly leaves, still well preserved, it appears that he went to Leyden in 1609, and sailed from Delft Haven for Southampton in 1619, and "from Plymouth in ye ship Mayflower ye 6th day of September, Anno Domini 1620," "Nov. ye 9th came to the harbour called Cape Cod Harbour in ye dauntless ship." Under date of November 19, 1620, is this entry: "Sonne born to Susanna White yt six o-clock in the morning." The date of Peregrine White's birth as given by Bradford was December 10, "new style." And again "Landed yt Plymouth Dec. ye 11th 1620.: The date, "new style," was December 21, since known as "Forefathers' Day." This was the first landing at Plymouth by the explorers who left the Mayflower at Provincetown Harbor and came up along the shore in the shallop. The fly leaves of this old Bible are covered with memoranda, and it is evident that the children of the family took a hand in illustrating it. Perhaps it was your ancestor Resolved who drew a crude likeness of an Indian and put under it the name of his brother Peregrine. The Bible crossed the ocean again to England on the ship Lyon, as appears by notations, and then came back to Plymouth into the possession of Elder Brewster.
During that first tragic winter when more than half of the Mayflower's company perished, William White and his two servants died "soon after landing." The exact date of his death was March 12, 1621. His widow, Susanna, on May 12, 1621, married Mr. Edward Winslow, Jr. of Droitwich, England, whose wife also had died after landing. So it was that your ancestor Resolved and his baby brother, Peregrine, went to live with their stepfather, Edward Winslow.

9457 William and Jessie had no children of their own, they did raise (from about age two) Mary Grace (called "Grace" Weatherby, one of the children of Jessie's sister Jane (Mrs. William Levi DaielWeatherby) who died about 1875. The Peakes took Grace into their home in Rockford, Illinois, and she lived with them thereafter. Grace Weatherby (sometimes called Peake though she never oficially asumed that name) was born Jun 26, 1873 in Battle Creek, Michigan, and died 28, September 1960 in Atlanta, Georgia. She attended the University of Chattanooga and taught school in Chattanooga. She married 18 April 1900 in Chattanooga to Fredrick Lorenzo Russell (born 4 May 1871, died 17 Februay 1934). The Russells lived in Chattanooga until about 1915 when they moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where (widowed) Jessie Peake lived with them in later years. The children of Fredrick and Grace Russell - Fredrick Lorenzo Russell and William Peake Russell - thought of William and Jessie as their grandparents.

After she was grown, Grace's sister Janie Weatherby (born 23 August 1870 in Ridgeway, Michigan) also lived for a time with the Peakes in Chattanooga. The worked for the Chattanooga times and later for the American Lava Company. She maried Joseph Lee Morrison.

9458 William Arms, the ancestor of the Arms family in the United States, came from the Island of either Jersey or Guernsey, in the English Channel. It is presumed that he assumed the name of Arms, as none of this name are found on the island from which he came. He was a knitter of stockings by trade. The first heard of him was his marriage with Joanna, daughter of John Hawks, one of the settlers of Hadley, Mass., in 1677. His name appears in the town records of Hatfield, Mass., in 1677. He removed from Hatfield to Sunderland thence to Deerfield, Mass., about 1684. In 1698 he was chosen farm-viewer, and one of a committee to build a school house and hire a schoolmaster; in 1699, a constable; in 1700, a tythingman; in 1701, a fence-viewer and school commissioner. After that his name appears almost yearly in the town records. Also, in the records of Sunderland, Mass., from 1714 to 1722, where he is spoken of as "Good Mr. Arms." He served in the Indian fight at Great Falls, and was one of those entitled to the township granted by the General Court, 1736. His body lies in the old burying ground at Deerfield, a little east of the center of the grounds, adjacent to his son William and grandson William.

William Arms served as a soldier under Capt William Turner, at Hadley, April 6, 1676; was in the Falls fight Ma 19, 1676; at hatfield 1677, where he speculated largely in real estate; he also owned real estate in hartford; he came to Deerfield about 1698, and settled at the south end of the Street on "Arms Corner," now in the possession of his descendants, Geo. A. and Richard C. Arms, for which he exchanged with Thos. Hunt a house and land in hartford; he removed to Sunderland, 1713; came back three or fou ears later and died Aug. 25, 1731, aged 77. He married November 21, 1677, Joanna, daughter of John Hawks of Hadley; she die November 22, 1729, age 76.

9459 William Avery was town clerk and treasurer of Groton from Jan. 27, 1768, until his death in 1787. During the Revolution he served on many war committees.....

September 21, 1779, William Avery was chosen to represent the town at a general convention to be held at hartford. he was also on a committee that year to obtain soldiers for the town's quota. In 1780, he was one of the committee to raise a bounty for the soldiers. He was also on a committee to see if Groton possessed any public lands that could be sold for that purpose. In 1781, he and four others were appointed to assess the estates of the town and to raise 198 pounds, "solid money," for bounties for the soldiers.

On a stone in the Starr cemetery is the following:

"This monument, sacred to the memory of William Avery, Esq., who departed this life, May 4, A Dom., 1787, in the 63rd year of his age.

Live in their death and flourish in their grave,
Grain laid in earth repays the pleasant care,
And evening suns but set to rise more fair."

He was made freeman in 1633; in 1634 he was one of the tax assessors, was himself rated at L2.05.00. he was on many committees, for assigning and laying out land, for building a meeting house, on highways, to revise the laws, and with his son-in-law, Constant Southworth, he had the task of looking after Goodwife Thomas, the Welsh woman. he served on the council of war more than once. he was assistant twenty-eight years and was one of the most regular in his attendance, being rarely absent. he was one of the commissioners at the first meeting of the United Colonies in 1643.

CONROY, William E. (I74239)
9481 William Fancher, believed to have been a brother of John Fancher, first settler of Poundridge, NY, is found in Branford, Conn., as early as 1723 where his marriage took place on 20 Nov. 1723 with THANKFUL THOMSON, daughter of John and Hannah (Wheadon) Thomson, who was born in Branford 7 Jul 1705. The marriage was performed by Samuel Russell. It is significant that Thankful Thomson and Samuel Elwell, who married Catherine Fancher, were both grandchildren of Thomas Wheadon, one of the first settlers of Branford, which is one of the facts which have led to the assumption that William and Catherine were brother and sister. William and his wife died a day apart, Thankful Fancher passing away on 19 August 1759 and William 20 August 1759.

William Fancher's name appears in various early reports. Branford Town Records of 1694-1788 state: '"Entered the earmark of William Fancher which is two nicks or slits crossways of ye right ear on the under side, May ye 18; 1724" referring to his cattle marks. Branford Land Records state that on 1 Feb. 1728/9 (vol. 5, p. 99) "John Whedon of Banford sells to Ebenezer Elwell and William Fancher of Branford yeoman 9 acres in the Gusset. (First land transaction)." The same records, vol. 6, pp. 63, 64, show that William Fancher bought 214 acres of land in Waterbury, Conn., 19 Jan. 1745/6, and his name appears on the list of taxpayers in that town in 1746. His will, recorded in Woodbury Probate Records, vol. 4, p. 112, as drawn 16 Aug. 1759 and probated 4 Dec. 1759, show that William was a farmer and owned a large farm.

William Fancher removed from Branford to Waterbury about 1745 or 1746, being on the list of taxpayers in Waterbury from 1746. When his will was drawn in 1759 he was called of "Northbury" (now Thomaston or Plymouth). that he lived in Branford as late as 1739 is evidenced by the fact he was received as a member of the Branford Congregational church in July of that year.

As several of the children were under age at the death of their parents, guardians had to be appointed. John, who was of age, became the guardian of his brothers Jehiel, Thomas and Ithiel; William became the guardian of his brother Ichabod and one Zachariah Sanford became the guardian of Lemuel. The guardianship appointments are found in Woodbury Probate Records, vol. 4, pp. 112 to 125, and vol. 5, p. 118.

Mason in the famous Pequot fight of 1637, and saved the Commanders life in the storming of the Fort, an exploit thus commemorated by Wolcott in his poem of 1721:

"But fate, that doth the rule of action know,
Did this unequal combat disallow;
For quite too much to force one man alone,
To beat an army, take a garrison,
Sent HAYDEN in, who with his sun-steeled blade
Joining the General, such a slaughter made,
That soon the Pequots ceased to oppose
the matchless force of such resistless foes."

The "sun-steeled blade" which turned the tide of battle is now in the collection of the Connecticut Historical Society at Hartford and the deed is represented by one of the crests on the book-plate of his great-great-grandson, Dr Moses Hayden, ...

He married first Frances (?), who came to America in the ship Ann in 1623. He married second Mary Trine, who came in the ship Fortune in 1623.

There are two versions of his will, made 4 Dec. 1637 and proved in Plymouth 5 March 1638. First: "...To my young wife one third of my estate...To possible heir one third of estate and if said heir does not appear, deal leniently with my granddaughter Rebecca and also Moses Rowley, whom I love, and legacies to Stephen Tracy...To the meeting house at Plymough and to John Willis 40 shillings also, to Henry and Bridgett 40 shillings, they being my children, if they are living and demand it..." Moses Rawley was his apprentice.

Another version of the same will: "...Whereas I married a young woman who is dear unto me, I desire that she hav not less than a third of my estate. To Rebecca my grandchild and Moses Rawley, whom I love, but not so to put it into their father's or mother's hands...I desire my executors to give something to Stephen Tracy, something to the Plymouth church, and also wish that young Rawley may be put with Mr. Partridge, that he may be brought up in the fear of God, and to that end, if his father suffer it. I give to Mr. Partridge 5 pounds. to my son Henry and daughter Bridgett 40 shillings..." Mr. Partridge was the minister of Duxbury.

The expected heir appeared, for the old records show that: "Know all men by these presents, that I william Palmer of Plymouth, cooper, son of William Palmer of Duxburrow, Naylor, deceased, release William Bradford, Edward Winslow and Thomas Prence for 51 pounds, mare, cattle, goods under my father's will, received by me William Palmer, 19 April 1659..."
