    Notes:

    Not Elizabeth Roosa, as suggested by Donald Lines Jacobus, who was unaware of the 1619 baptismal record of the younger Edward Riggs, which would make a marriage to Elizabeth Roosa impossible. Elizabeth Roosa was instead the second wife of the elder Edward Riggs.

    Notes:

    "The Riggs and the Holmes families came in the Great Migration to Massachusetts Bay as part of a group of Puritans known as the Nazeing Christians under Rev. John Eliot, settling in Roxbury. Edward Riggs and his family came in 1633; George Holmes* and probably his wife (and possibly some children) came after the baptism of his daughter Lydia in Nazeing on 26 July 1635 and before the first recorded birth of a child of his, a son Nathaniel, on 1 (12) 1639 [1 February 1639]. Edward Riggs was admitted to the Roxbury church in 1633, and George Holmes in 1638, so George probably immigrated in 1638. 18 Edward was admitted freeman on 14 May 1634 and George on 22 May 1639."
