Walter Woodworth

M, b. before 1612, d. between 26 November 1685 and 25 February 1685/86
     Walter Woodworth "Savage, following Deane, says that the immigrant had a son Walter Woodworth who had children Mary, b. 1658; Mehitable, 1662; and Ebenezer, 1664' [Savage 4:648]. There is only evidence of one Walter Woodworth in early New England, as no record refers to Walter Sr. or Jr. The immigrant had daughters named Mary and Mehitable; no record for an Ebenezer is seen. Paul W. Prindle and Robert S. Wakefield have commented briefly on some errors in secondary sources regarding marriages in this family [TAG 32:203, 61:140]. In arranging the children of Walter Woodworth, the assumption has been made that in his will he named his sons in birth order and his daughters in birth order. This permits a birth sequence for the children which is consistent with other known dates."1 He was born before 1612 at Kent, England.1 He immigrated in 1633 to Plymouth, Plymouth, Massachusetts.1 He was freeman on 2 March 1640/41 at Scituate, Massachusetts.1 He served as Arbiter on 4 June 1645.1 He served as surveyor of highways between 4 June 1645 and 3 June 1656.1 He served as Coroner's jury on 1 July 1680. He died between 26 November 1685 and 25 February 1685/86 at Scituate, Plymouth, Massachusetts.
