Descendants of WILLIAM Story

Generation No. 1

      1. WILLIAM2 Story (ANDREW1) was born 1614 in Old Norwich, Norfolk Co., England, and died Bef. Jan 1702/03 in Ipswich, Essex Co, MA. He married SARAH Foster ca. 1640 in Ipswich, MA, daughter of REGINALD Foster and Judith Wignol. She was born 1620 in Exeter, Devon Co., England, and died Bef. 1681 in Ipswich, Essex Co, MA.

Notes for WILLIAM Story:
1. Info from FAMILY GROUP SHEET provided by Priscilla Bohanan, New Hampshire Antiquarian Society. Material was prepared by Annetta S. Walker, 1520 S. Spruce, Casper, Wyoming (1983-1987).

2. See Vital records of Ipswich, MA, Vol 1 & II, Essex Institute.

3. Re: Vol. v, p 596, Essex Co. Deeds:
31 March 1693, deeded " all my housing, lands, fences, orchards, etc. belonging to my lands in Chebacco, in Ipswich, adjoining to Chebacco Falls River" to son, Seth Story".

4."Genealogical and Family History of State of New Hampshire", Stearns, Vol. #1, p. 314,15, 1908.
"William Story, carpenter, came from Norwich, Norfolk Co., England, in 1637, as a servant of Samuel Dix, being then twenty-three years old. He embarked April 8, 1637, and settled in Ipswich, Ma."

5. See NEGHR, Vol. VIII, p. 130:
William "died about 1658". This begs question about youngest 3 daughters, Hannah, Susannah and Abigail who are shown on FAMILY GROUP SHEET provided by New Hampshire Antiquarian Soc.

6. See: Internet web pages.....
'Colonial Families of New England'....

7. Note for Elizabeth Story Moore (Story family researcher):

"Forget all those references about William's father - as far as I know they
are all just idle speculation. "

Andrew was a resident of Ipswich MA 1639, proprietor 1635, etc. [See
reference "Genealogical Encyclopedia of First Settlers to New England" which
says he may be the youth sentenced to be whipped Sept Court 1635 for running
from his master, and after had served in the expedition against the Pequots
two years later.] I can find no further reference regarding this man.

Augustine was a resident of Exeter NH 1639, had the year before been of
Bostom MA, etc. [See reference cited above, which says his surname was
variously recorded as Star, Storr, Storre & Story.] Nothing further known.

Regarding when William came to the colonies...
8 Aug 1637: Examination of Samuel Dix, of Norwich (etc - this is in England)
and two servants, William Storey age 23 & Daniel Linsey age 18 all desirous
to pass to Boston in New England, there to inhabitt."
