- (prob.) Robert Dalyber (d. ca. 1593) m. Agnes ____ (d. aft. 1594); Stoke Abbot, Dorset, Eng.

Documents relative to the English origin of the Doliver family are abstracted in Henry F. Waters, Genealogical Gleanings in England: Abstracts of Wills Relating to Early American Families, with Genealogical Notes and Pedigrees Constructed from the Wills and Other Documents, 2 vols. (1907; reprint, Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1981), 2:828, and in
Charles Henry Pope, The Pioneers of Massachusetts: A Descriptive List, Drawn from the Records of the Colonies, Towns, and Churches, and Other Contemporaneous Documents, (1900; reprint, Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1965), 128.
A brief, flawed summary of the American records is found in Donald A. Doliber,
The DoliberDolliver Family, Essex Genealogist 2 (1982): 22-6.
A more complete account appears in Search for the Passengers of the Mary & John, 1630, vol. 19 (Toledo, Ohio: Burton W. Spear, 1993), 40-2, though with a few omissions.
Needless to say, Vital Records of Gloucester, Massachusetts, to the End of the Year 1849, 3 vols. (Topsfield, Mass.: Topsfield Historical Society, 191724), and
The Probate Records of Essex County, Massachusetts, 3 vols. (Salem, Mass.: Essex Institute, 191620), have been the mainstays of my American research on this family.
