  • Notes 
    • Often spelled Beesbeach, Besbedge, Bisby, Besbey, etc. He was a cooper and a planter.

      Robert Charles Anderson has established that he cannot have been a son of the immigrant Thomas Beesbeech.

      "Elisha Bisby [...] kept the first ferry where Union Bridge now [1831] stands, in 1644. His house stood near the bridge on the west side of the river, and the south side of the way." [Samuel Deane, History of Scituate, Massachusetts, from Its First Settlement to 1831]

      "His house was a tavern." [Lapham, citation details below.]
