    From The Whitmore Genealogy (1907), pp. 13-14:

    "Francis came to this country probably during the 1630's, and had established his residence at Cambridge prior to 1648, as about this time he married, at that place, Isabel Parke. Brooks, in his history of Medford, tells us he owned property in Cambridge near the Plains, Charlestown near the Menetomie River, near Dendruck Meadows; also in Medford and Lexington. His house stood on the dividing line between Lexington and Cambridge, and is mentioned in the Act of division. His name, with that of his wife, appears on a petition in favor of an old woman charged with being a witch, so he can hardly have been of the extreme Puritan party, though a member of the church. Francis served in King Philip's war; was Selectman and Constable in 1668 and 1682. In his will he makes provision for the education of his ch., thus early evidencing that regard for edu. that is so marked a family trait."

    For what it's worth, Francis probably did not arrive in the 1630s, or he'd be covered in Robert Charles Anderson's Great Migration series.

    Francis married Isabel Parke Bef 1649. Isabel (daughter of Richard Parke and Margery) was born Abt 1628, England; died 31 Mar 1665, Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet]


  2. 9.  Isabel Parke was born Abt 1628, England (daughter of Richard Parke and Margery); died 31 Mar 1665, Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    The ship's manifest for the Defense, on which she emigrated in 1635 with her parents, gives her age as "7".
