  • Notes 
    • "Henry Winthrop did not accompany his father to America in 1629 but followed him on the Talbott, arriving at Salem on July 2, 1630. On the same day, seeing a small boat across a bay he attempted to swim over to it but, being seized by cramps, was drowned in full sight of his friends, none of whom were able to swim." [Genealogies of Long Island Families]

      Elizabeth Fones married, as her first husband, Henry Winthrop; her sister Martha Fones was the first wife of Henry Winthrop's brother John Winthrop the Younger. Elizabeth and Martha's mother was Anne Winthrop, sister to John Winthrop the elder, first governor of the Massachusetts Bay colony and father of Henry and John (the younger). Thus two pairs of siblings married their first cousins.
