A documented biography of Robert, with a summary of records relating to his family (including Rebeccas parentage), is in Alicia Crane Williams, Early New England Families, 16411700, 2 vols. to date
(Boston: New England Historic Genealogical Society, 20159), 2:374-9.
The key reference for Rebeccas parentage is the diary of Samuel Sewall for 29 January 1697/8, where he wrote,
Joseph Perce and the widow Windsor, Capt Scottos sister, lye dead. Days earlier, Sewall had served as one of the pallbearers at Capt. Joshua Scottows funeral:

Straus and Giroux, 1973), 1:385-6.
