A fairly welldocumented survey of the first generation in America is provided by Thomas Bellows Wyman, The Genealogies and Estates of Charlestown in the County of Middlesex and Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 16291818, 2 vols. (Boston: David Clapp & Son, 1879), 1:414-5, but it does not give full treatment to the Reading branch of the family. For that purpose there seems to be no authoritative account in print. The PDF essay linked below summarizes my research in documentary sources on this family. Although I necessarily pursue only one child in each family, I also attempt to provide basic chronological information on all of my ancestors other children and their spouses.
