  • Note:
    The following was copied from "The Great Migration Begins":

    [John Winthrop m., as 4th wife] Soon after 20 December 1647, as her second husband, Martha Coytmore, widow of Thomas Coytmore and daughter of William Rainsborough [MBCR 2:232-36; TAG 32:15]; she m. (3) Boston 10 March 1651/2 JOHN COGGAN [BVR 34; NEHGR 111:13], and died there about 24 October 1660 [NEHGR 111:15]. (Wyman and Pope give the date of John Winthrop's fourth marriage as 4 December 1647, and later writers have followed them, but the marriage contract shows that the marriage did not take place until after 20 December 1647; these two authors were apparently misled by an early account of the Winthrop family which put the number "4," indicating fourth wife, immediately ahead of "December 1647," the month of the marriage as indicated by the marriage contract.)
