  • Name Catherine FANCHER  [1
    • Catherine Fancher, whose parents and date of birth are unknown, is believed to have been the eldest of the Fanchers with whom this genealogy is concerned. That she was the sister of William Fancher is established by the record that her son, Samuel Elwell, married his "cousin," Hannah Fancher, the daughter of William Fancher, and a like record of the daughter of William that she married her "cousin" Samuel Elwell. Because of the proximity of their homes, nearness of age and inter-family relations, it is the opinion of the compiler that Catherine and William were of the same Fancher family as Hannah and John, alleged by descendants to have been brother and sister, and of Richard and David, and it si assumed for the purposes of this genealogy, that all six were brothers and sisters. Because of the earlier marriage of Catherine, in 1717, it has been presumed that she was older than her brother William, who was married in 1723, and accordingly her record is treated first....

      Ebenezer Elwell and family were among the first settlers of Plymouth, formerly called Northbury, going there about 1732 from Branford, Anne, daughter of Ebenezer and Catherine Elwell, was the second child and first girl born in Plymouth.
