Notes for Thomas Woodford
The following is from Savage: Thomas Woodford came from London in the William and Francis, embarking on 7 March 1632 and arriving on 5 June 1632. He settled in Roxbury. The voyage was made with Edward Winslow, who relates that there were about sixty passengers. The custom-house record shows that only sixteen were identified to the government. Reverend Stephen Bachiler, Reverend Thomas James, and Reverend Thomas Weld were all on the cruise but were not identified in the custom-house records. When Woodford was admitted to the church he was called servant, and was made freeman on 4 March 1635. He had married Mary Blott, daughter of Robert Blott, who had come in 1632, by that time. They may have been fellow passengers. He moved to Hartford not long afterwards. His wife had died before 1656 (according to her father's will), when he moved to Northampton. Savage gives various details of his and his father-in-law's will.
Notes for Mary (Spouse 1)
She was the 63rd member admitted to the church at Roxbury in 1632.394

Note that Jacobus only lists Mary, Hannah, and Sarah as children of this couple.391
