Footnotes

[1] I have seen no primary source for Elizabeth’s last name or marriage date. Henry L. Bunker states, “Joan died a few years later (after Alice’s baptism) and was buried at Tingrith 1 April 1617. Timothy remarried Elizabeth Hawkins on May 3, 1620…” (p. 80). Elizabeth’s first name is confirmed by her children William and Joan’s baptisms.
