    From Wikipedia:

    Thomas Dudley was a colonial magistrate who served several terms as governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Dudley was the chief founder of Newtowne, later Cambridge, Massachusetts, and built the town's first home. He provided land and funds to establish the Roxbury Latin School, and signed Harvard College's new charter during his 1650 term as governor. Dudley was a devout Puritan who was opposed to religious views not conforming with his. In this he was more rigid than other early Massachusetts leaders like John Winthrop, but less confrontational than John Endecott.

    The son of a military man who died when he was young, Dudley saw military service himself during the French Wars of Religion, and then acquired some legal training before entering the service of his likely kinsman the Earl of Lincoln. Along with other Puritans in Lincoln's circle, Dudley helped organize the establishment of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, sailing with Winthrop in 1630. Although he served only four one-year terms as governor of the colony, he was regularly in other positions of authority.

    Dudley's descendants include his daughter Anne Bradstreet (1612–1672), the prominent early American poet, and many famous Americans. One of the gates of Harvard Yard, which existed from 1915 to 1947, was named in his honor, and Harvard's Dudley House is named for the family.

    Children:
    1. 6. Thomas Dudley, Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony was born on 12 Oct 1576 in Yardley Hastings, Northamptonshire, England; died on 31 Jul 1653 in Roxbury, Suffolk, Massachusetts; was buried on 6 Aug 1653 in Roxbury, Suffolk, Massachusetts.

    Edmund married Katherine Robins on 7 Sep 1568 in Hardingstone, Northamptonshire, England. Katherine died before 30 Jun 1633; was buried on 30 Jun 1633 in Hardingstone, Northamptonshire, England. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  6. 15.  Katherine Robins died before 30 Jun 1633; was buried on 30 Jun 1633 in Hardingstone, Northamptonshire, England.

    Notes:

    "There is no doubt that the widow buried in July 1633 was the Katherine Yorke, late of Northampton, widow, who made the nuncupative will on or about 21 June 1633. Was she the same Katherine that Edmund Yorke had married in 1568? If so, it is surprising that the eldest surviving child was born in 1580, twelve years after the marriage, and that all the other surviving children follow that birth. Even placing before 1580 the two sons with unknown birthdates, there is still a large gap. Although the 1633 burial is the only one found, it seems possible that the Katherine of 1568 died and that Edmund remarried a second wife with the same first name. There being no evidence that such was the case, however, it must remain only a possibility." [Barry E. Hinman, "Edmund Yorke of Cotton End," citation details below.]
