  • Notes 
    • Emigrated to Roxbury, Massachusetts in 1633 with her second husband John Porter, their daughter Hannah, and her daughter Sarah by her late first husband.

      "The life of Margaret (-----) (ODDING) PORTER was not one of stability. She was probably born by 1590 and married by 1610 to William ODDYN, a weaver. In 1612 she was left a young widow with a small daughter, Sarah. Sometime before 1633, probably before 1629, she married John Porter, likely in Braintree. John and Margaret had a daughter, Hannah, probably born in England. John, Margaret, Sarah, and Hannah came to Roxbury during 1633, where they joined the church late that year, John Porter and his son-in-law Philip Sherman were among those who broke from the Roxbury church. Margaret was uprooted again, moving to Portsmouth, Rhode Island, by 1638. Her life there was not happy. John Porter abandoned her by 1665, moving to Pettaquamscutt and apparently taking up with another woman. Margaret was obliged to petition the court for relief, the last mention of her." [Patricia Law Hatcher, "Reconstructing Sarah (Odding) Sherman", citation details below.]
