    Notes 
    • The record of Joshua's life and career is obscure and involved in much uncertainty. It is obvious from a close review of the Plymouth records that he was a man active in affairs, having numerous land deals, indicating that he was a general trade and property man. After his second marriage his relations to his children seem to have been mainly restricted to John, the son, by his wife, Susanna, and gave him the home at Plympton previous to his death. It seems quite likely that Robert and Mary, the children by Mary Gifford, remained in Rhode Island after their mother's death in their uncle's (Yelverton0Gifford) family, where they were reared.[gifford.ged]
