  • Notes 
    • "There is no direct evidence for the conclusion that the widow of Edward Bates was the Lydia Bates who married William Fletcher, but the circumstances make it a high probability: the last record of Edward Bates is in 1644, and the marriage of Lydia Bates takes place in 1645; and John Bates, presented to the Chelmsford church on 1 February 1656/7 as a child of William Fletcher, was said to be about fifteen at the time, which is exactly what the John Bates baptized in Boston as a son of Edward Bates would be." [Robert Charles Anderson, The Great Migration Begins, volume 1, p. 132]
