  • Notes 
    • Possibly a son of Lionel Worth and Susanna Whipple, the latter a daughter of TNH ancestor the Rev. John Whipple (1596-1669). He is not mentioned in Lionel's will.

      "He and wife Elizabeth were members of Boston's Brattle Square Church, on Boston tax list 1687 and 1691; after 1695 moved to Dorchester, then to Norwich, Connecticut, in area set off as Lebanon in 1700. James may have died ca. 1725. Elizabeth Worth is seen in Lebanon church records ca. 1716 to 1725." [A Genealogical History of the Clark and Worth Families, citation details below.]
