    Notes 
    • Stephen French was granted land in Dorchester, MA, on 16 Jan 1632/33 so he came very early. A number of families came from Crewkerne on the "Mary & John" in 1630. Stephen French is a "probable passenger". Soon after he moved to Weymouth, possibly to join his sister, Judith French, who came to that town with Rev. Joseph Hull's group in 1635, at age 20. Another sister, Mary and a brother Jacob, also came to Weymouth, but just when is not known.
