  • Notes 
    • Also known as William Mirick, William Myrick.

      Emigrated by October 1636.

      One of the original 29 proprietors of Little Compton, Rhode Island, but it is unclear whether he ever lived there.

      He was a private under Captain Standish in and probably before 1643, sergeant in 1649, and ensign for some period of time before 1663, when he was made lieutenant of the Eastham company. He retired the following year due to old age.
