Note: <i>The Great Migration Directory: Immigrants to New England, 1620-1640: A Concise Compendium</i> (Robert Charles Anderson; NEHGS; 2015) page 7: Henry Andrews: Unknown; 1638; Taunton [PCR 1:53, 105, 7:36; Lechford 318; MD 11:152-56, 12:246-47; NEHGR 52: 16-23].
Most of the information on the family of Henry ANDREWS of Taunton, MA is found in articles appearing in the NEHGR in Oct. 1897 by Josiah H. DRUMMOND and in Jan. 1898 by Almon D. HODGES. Neither article provides the surname of Mary, wife of the immigrant, and no substantive evidence has been found elsewhere. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------ Henry ANDREWS - b. 1608, Somerset Co., England; d. Feb. 10, 1652/3, Taunton, MA. Will dated Mar. 13, 1652, and estate inventoried Feb. 20, 1652/3. He was an original purchaser at Taunton, MA in 1637, built the first meeting house in 1647 for which he received a tract of land known as the "calves pasture," and was deputy to the Plymouth general court in 1639, 1642, 1643, 1647, and 1649. Probably married about 1628 in England.
Mary POOL - b. 1610-11, England; d. early 1655, Taunton, MA. Will dated Feb. 14, 1654/5, and proved Mar. 15, 1654/5. Simply because it is most frequently encountered, the POOL surname has been used here. Carl Boyer, 3rd., in Ancestral Lines, Third Edition (Santa Clarita, CA 1998), suggests that she may have been Mary STREET, daughter of Francis STREET, who purchased land at Taunton, MA in 1637. The estate of Francis was inventoried Jun. 3, 1665, and his widow (possibly his second wife) was married second on Dec. 10, 1665 to Thomas LINCOLN.
Children of Henry and Mary Andrews 1. Henry - b. about 1629, perhaps in England; d. May 23, 1676, Taunton, MA. Killed by Indians.
