    Notes:

    "The Middletown entries continue with the marriage on 28 March 1660 of William and Phebe, without revealing her last name. Convincing arguments have been advanced by Frank Farnsworth Starr, as quoted by Myrtle M. Morris in Joseph and Philena (Elton) Fellows (1941), p. 162, and by Mary Lovering Holman (TAG 15:80-86), that Phebe may have been a daughter of Arthur Fenner. Note that Fenner was used as a given name several times among the descendants of William and Phebe Ward." ["Some Descendants of William Ward," citation details below.]

    "Phoebe (Fenner), bapt 5 Jan. 1633-34, was a Phebe Ward in 1680 with children. She is stated to have m. John Ward of Newport, but nothing has been found to substantiate this.

Conn., whose wife, Phebe, had these children: [...] William Ward d. 28 Mar. 1690, Middletown, testate; his widow, Phebe, d. thre 1 Sept. 1691. In his will, he does not name all his children but these eight were living." ["The Fenner, Browne, and Tully Ancestry," citation details below.]
