    Notes:

    "The two daughters, Joanna and Anne, who are herein credited to Percival Lowle, are considered by several very competent genealogists to have been children of John and Elizabeth Goodale of Great Yarmouth, co. Norfolk. As a widow, Elizabeth Goodale came to New England and settled in Newbury where her daughter Elizabeth married Percival Lowle's son John. In her will Elizabeth (Goodale) Lowle names the husbands of Joanna and Anne among her four 'brothers.' John Goodale of Great Yarmouth, her father, had, however, made a very careful and highly genealogical will in 1625, and neither in this document nor in the regular baptismal records of his children do daughters Joanna and Anne appear. It would seem to be a sound conclusion that the husbands of Joanna and Anne were Elizabeth's 'brothers' as husbands of her two Lowle sisters-in-law, and the whole atmosphere surrounding them tends to substantiate it." [Walter Goodwin Davis, citation details below]

    Her will, dated 4 Nov 1681 and proved 22 Feb 1691, mentioned her brother (in-law) Richard Lowle and her daughter Elizabeth Pierce; it also makes her son-in-law Daniel Pierce Jr. her executor.
