    Notes:

    See the entry on his father-in-law William Allright for reason to believe that the Dedham settler was the William Avery born in Berkshire in 1622.

    He arrived in New England in 1650 and settled at Dedham. He was a physician. Following the 1678 death of his first wife, Margaret Allright, he married Mary Woodmansey, daughter of Robert Woodmansey and widow of John Tappin, and moved to Boston, where he took charge of the bookstore being run by his new wife's son Joseph Tappin.

    From Isaiah Thomas's 1810 History of Printing in America: "William Avery was [a] Bookseller, located near the Blue Anchor, in 1679."

    From George Littlefield's 1900 Early Boston Booksellers 1642-1711: "His Wife (Margaret) died September 28th, 1678, & in 1679 he married Mrs. Maria Tappin, widow of John Tappin, died Sept. 14, 1678, married 20, 6 mo. 1654, of Boston, to which place he removed & took charge of the book shop recently conducted by Joseph Tappin, her son, to which he added an apothecary's department, which is said to have been the first ever established in New England. In 1679 he published a book the title of which reads: 'The Necessity of pouring out the spirit from on High, etc.' Boston: Printed by John Foster, for William Avery near the sign of the Blew Anchor, 1679."

    William married Margaret Allright. Margaret (daughter of William Allright and Clemens Clemont) was born about 1623; died on 28 Sep 1678 in Dedham, Norfolk, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Children:

  3. 6.  William Allright was born in in of Arborfield, Berkshire, England; died between 18 Mar 1666 and 21 May 1667.

    Notes:

    His will gives "vnto my eldest daughter Margarett Avery in new England Twenty shillings of Lawfull money it ever it be Demanded, to be paid vnto her by me Executor."

    For many years it was assumed without proof that the William Avery who came to Dedham around 1650 was the William Avery who was a son of Robert Avery of Barkham in Berkshire. This will, first published by Elizabeth French in the October 1909 "Genealogical Research in England" section of the NEHGR (citation details below) — coupled with the fact that Barkham is only two miles from Arborfield — makes it seem very likely that the two William Averys were in fact a single individual.

    William married Clemens Clemont in 1623 in Barkham, Berkshire, England. Clemens died in 1640 in Barkham, Berkshire, England. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
