  • Notes 
    • The Ancestry of Eva Belle Kempton II (citation details below) establishes that he came from Ogborne St. George in Wiltshire, based on the will of his sister Millicent who died there in 1659 after bequeathing her full estate to "my brother William living in Newberry in New England." He may have been the William Titcomb baptized at Ogborne St. George on 7 Nov 1613, and he was perhaps a son of the Thomas Titcomb buried there on 5 Jul 1630.

      Robert Charles Anderson finds no record of him prior to his appearance at Newbury in 1639, but The Ancestry of Eva Belle Kempton II says that he took the oath of supremacy and allegiance at Southampton, England, on 24 Mar 1634, "to pass for New England in the Mary and John of London, Robert Sayres, master." He was one of the six left behind to oversee the transportation of cattle on the Hercules, which departed Southampton on 16 Apr 1634.
