  • Notes 
    • "Phebe (Bisby) Bressey married, as her second husband, Lieut. Samuel Martin of New Haven. They moved to Wethersfield where Martin died 15 Sept. 1683. Phebe's father, William Bisby, was not pleased with either of her husbands. In a letter to his sister-in-law, Mary Wyllys, wife of George Wyllys, Governor of the Connecticut Colony, dated 11 May 1646, he says of his daughter 'shee was rash in her first marryage, & soe in her second.' In another letter to Mrs. Wyllys, dated 21 Aug. 1646, he states that Phebe had had £20 each year from him since she went to New England, 'which is, I take it, twelve years.'"
