    "[P]robably daughter of William Palmer of Plymouth." [The Pilgrim Migration]

Generation: 2

  1. 2.  William Palmer was born about 1581; died between 7 Nov 1637 and 13 Nov 1637 in Duxbury, Plymouth, Massachusetts.


    Emigrated to Plymouth, 1621, on the Fortune. Later removed to Duxbury.

    He was a nailer, and quite certainly not a son of Sir John Palmer and Elizabeth Verney, descendants of Edward III, as ridiculously asserted on the website of the Joseph Smith, Sr. Foundation.

    He may have been the William Palmer baptized 13 Aug 1581 at Upper Clatford, Hampshire, son of William Palmer (Sr.) and Alice Knight, the latter of whom married one another 2 Oct 1580 at Upper Clatford. That William Palmer's baptismal entry is just three lines following the entry for Mayflower passenger Stephen Hopkins, and our William Palmer seems to have had an association with Hopkins in Plymouth. In the 1627 division of cattle at Plymouth, William Palmer, his wife Frances, and son William are all included within Hopkins's household.

    But the identity of the Plymouth immigrant with the individual baptized at Upper Clatford has yet to be proven.

    William married Frances before 1606. Frances died before 1637. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

  2. 3.  Frances died before 1637.
    1. 1. (Unknown) Palmer was born about 1610.
