This page is a launchpad for additions and corrections to the book: Ancestral Roots of Certain American Colonists Who Came to America Before 1700, By Frederick Lewis Weis. Baltimore, MD, USA: Genealogical Publishing Co., 2004.

Line 1.34 on page 3 is stated : "Thomas Cary of Chilton Foliot, co Wilts...b 1455, d 1500...." However Thomas is known to be living 1518-29 when by Procat Entry C 1/480/13 when he complains of detention of deeds in right of Margaret his wife, daughter and heir of Robert Spencer, Knt.

Line 1.38 on page 4 is stated : "Penelope West...d abt 1619" However the baptismal register of Boston, Lincolnshire where the family is last known to have lived, shows that their last child Elizabeth was baptised there on 8 Jul 1624 and Penelope must have been living at least shortly before that.

Line 1.39 on page 4 is stated : "Penelope Pelham...b abt 1619" The baptismal register shows that she was baptised on 11 Oct 1618 Saint Clements, Hastings.

Line 1.39 on page 4 is stated : "Herbert Pelham...m (1) Jemima Waldegrave" no date being specified. It also states that she was daughter of "Thomas Waldegrave, son of Thomas Waldegrave", no mothers being given. The marriage license was granted by the Bishop of London in 1626/7 and states that she is about 20, and he is about 26. The wife of Thomas Jr was Margaret Holmstead, and the wife of Thomas Sr was Elizabeth Gurdon, daughter of Robert Gurdon of Assington.
