  • Notes 
    • Killed by natives at the same time as a number of other inhabitants of Brookfield.

      A number of well-regarded genealogical sources, including Tingley-Meyers, Noyes-Gilman, etc., have him married to Rebecca Dane, daughter of Dr. John Dane who died at Roxbury in 1658. This appears to originate with the 1913 Hovey Book (citation details below). Kyle Dane has a good summary of the evidence that this is mistaken and that James Hovey's wife was Priscilla Warner--which is what Torrey says, in fact.
