I have looked at Charles Preston's information. I am not totally convinced that Roger b. 1613-14 is the son of Roger, however, maybe. And there maybe 2 Rogers about that time, one of Upottery and one in London. I have a will of Roger d. 1638 in London, but I'm still trying to interpret the writing. I'm not finding marriage records of Roger of Ipswich and Martha, but it might be in the Boston records. I don't have access to them yet. http://www.americanancestors.org/databases/
Thanks for the clue on Martha Marston. I will look into that. I don't know where Martha Blessing Towne came from. It doesn't look like she was a daughter of William Towne and Joanna Blessing Towne. Maybe her maiden name was something else and she married a Blessing and then a Towne? The Prestons could have known or been related to Rebecca Towne Nurse of Salem. I don't know. Jacob Preston son of Samuel, son of Roger, married the Sarah Wilson, age 14 who was accused of witchcraft, along with Sarah's mother Sarah Lord Wilson. There seems to be evidence in the Witchcraft trials paper that a few Prestons were among those that accused or testified too. Looks like it was a small community, where many people were related in some way, and many were among the accused and accusers. However, I just don't think Martha Blessing Towne is placed correctly or identified correctly. Let me know if you find something else, and I'll keep searching too. Thanks.
