  • Notes 
    • "[N]eal Southwick . . . undertook a study of the Southwick family and published his findings in 1981. His research included the discovery of the marriage of Lawrence Southwick and Cassandra Burnell at Kingswinford, county Stafford, England, 'both of that parish,' on 25 January 1623/4. His brief treatment of Lawrence and Cassandra Southwick included the English baptisms of some, but not all, of their children between 1625 and 1637 [fn.2].

      [fn.2] "The child Josiah, bp. at Kingswinford on 20 March 1628/9. was omitted from his list.

      "This discovery puts to rest the long-held tradition that Lawrence Southwick came to New England from Lancashire, England, in 1627, returned to England and brought his wife Cassandra, son John and daughter Mary to Massachusetts in 1630 on the May Flower with Mr. William Bradford and others."
