    Notes 
    • "History and Genealogy of the Families of Old Fairfield": Seabrook, Robert - An elderly man, one of the early settlers in Stratford, he did not long survive. His will is not found, and our only knowledge of it comes from mention made of it in Stratford Deeds, where land was entered to the following persons which they had by gift from their grandfather Robert Seabrook: - Samuel Fairchild, Thomas Fairchild, Jehiel Preston, John Wheeler's wife, Samuel Stiles's wife, and perhaps others not noted. From this we deduce that he had daus. who m. thomas Fairchild, William Preston, and Thomas Sherwood; the wives of Wheeler and Stiles were daus. of Sherwood.
      Preston was from Chesham, co. Buckingham, and the name Seabrook is common in that county, where at Wingrave a Robert Seabrook m. 12 Sept. 1596, Alice Goodspeed, bapt. 19 Aug. 1576, dau. of Nicholas, Jr., and Margaret Goodspeed. She was a cousin of Roger Goodspeed, the Barnstable settler. If this was the emigrant Robert, he may have married more than once; but unless research in England be made, we have only vague surmise on which to build.
