  2. 5.  Annis

    Notes:

    Long thought to have been Annis Chickering, but this is now in doubt.

    Children:
    1. 2. Joseph Morse was born on 30 Mar 1641 in Dedham, Norfolk, Massachusetts; died on 7 Oct 1689 in Medfield, Norfolk, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    Tingley (citation details below) asserts that he came in 1630 with Gov. Winthrop, but he is not listed in Robert Charles Anderson's 2012 The Winthrop Fleet, so we presume this is in error. He was in Watertown and then Dedham in the early 1630s.

Generation: 4

  1. 8.  Samuel Morse was born before 12 Jun 1576 (son of Rev. Thomas Morse and Margaret King); died on 5 Dec 1654 in Medfield, Norfolk, Massachusetts.

    Other Events:

    • Baptised: 12 Jun 1576, Boxted, Essex, England

    Notes:

    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]


  2. 9.  Elizabeth Jasper was born before 30 Jan 1580 (daughter of Lancelot Jasper and Rose); died on 20 Jun 1655 in Medfield, Norfolk, Massachusetts.

    Other Events:

    • Baptised: 30 Jan 1580, Redgrave, Suffolk, England

    Children:
    1. Elisabeth Morse was born before 6 Mar 1606; died on 2 Oct 1643 in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts.
    2. 4. John Morse was born before 28 Feb 1608.
    3. Daniel Morse was born about 1610; died on 5 Jun 1688 in Sherborn, Middlesex, Massachusetts; was buried in Farm Cemetery, Sherborn, Middlesex, Massachusetts.
    4. Joseph Morse was born before 2 May 1613; died before 20 Jun 1654 in Dorchester, Suffolk, Massachusetts.

  3. 12.  Leonard Colborne

    Notes:

    Possibly the "Leonerd Colbron" baptized at Raydon, just west of Woolverstone, 15 Mar 1571, son of Edmond Colbron.
