  2. William Newell, A Discourse on the Church-Gathering in 1636, (Boston: James Munroe and Company, 1846), 53; The date and place of her birth/baptism in England have not been found. Given the intervals between documented dates of birth of her siblings, she may have been born about 1634. Date is estimated based on baptismal dates of older siblings, and date of parents' emigration (1638).
