    Children:
    1. 5. Prudence Townsend was born before 28 Jun 1601; died on 24 Feb 1691 in Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts.

    With his wife, he migrated to New England in 1635.

    Probably, but not absolutely proven as, a son of the Rev. Thomas Morse of Boxted, Essex; Hinderclay, Suffolk; and Foxearth, Essex.

    Samuel Morse and Elizabeth Jasper are the most recent common ancestors of BAM and TWK. They are also ancestors of presidents William Howard Taft and Calvin Coolidge, and (probably, assuming that Nathaniel Butler, husband of Sarah Herrick, was a son of Benjamin Butler, 1727-1800, and Susanna Whiting, 1734-1775) also of the two Bush presidents.

    Robert Charles Anderson, in The Great Migration: Immigrants to New England, 1634-1635, Volume V, p. 174:

    In 1929 G. Andrews Moriarty published an extensive collection of extracts from probate records and parish registers for the surname Morse in Suffolk and Essex and on that basis constructed a pedigree of the family in those counties [NEHGR 83:70-84, 278-94]. He discussed three Samuel Morses who might have been the immigrant, and concluded that the New England man was the son of the Rev. Thomas Morse of Boxted, Essex, Hinderclay, Suffolk, and Foxearth, Essex [NEHGR 83:286-89]. (This same identification had been made in 1865 by Abner Morse [NEHGR 19:264-66].)

    In 1948, in the course of examining John Morse of Boston, Robert H. Montgomery analyzed Moriarty's arguments and concluded that Moriarty had not proved his case [TAG 24:147-56, at 148-49]. Less than a year later Moriarty defended his position vigorously [TAG 25:54-56]. We have accepted Moriarty's identification as the most likely solution, with the caveat that additional evidence would be welcome.

    Samuel married Elizabeth Jasper on 29 Jun 1602 in Redgrave, Suffolk, England. Elizabeth (daughter of Lancelot Jasper and Rose) was born before 30 Jan 1580; died on 20 Jun 1655 in Medfield, Norfolk, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
