Misc. Notes
According to Threlfall’s GMC50324, Francis Wyman “was born about 1595, supposedly in Barkway, Hertfordshire, possible in a nearby parish. He was the son of Thomas and Joan (Chrishall) Wyman (or Wymant) of Barkway.

“On 2 May 1617, Francis Wyman married Elizabeth Richardson of West Mill, Hertfordshire. West Mill is about 5 miles south of Barkway. She was the daughter of Thomas and Katherine (Duxford) Richardson and was baptized at West Mill 13 June 1593 [Threlfall gives this date as 13 Jan. on p. 533]. She was buried 22 June 1630 at West Mill. Apparently, Francis Wyman remained a widower for the next eleven years, raising his three sons. Then, with his eldest son aged 23 and the two younger sons, Francis and John off to New England, he remarried on 29 June 1641 at Welwyn, which is 10 miles southwest of West Mill, Elizabeth Cable. Fifteen years later, on 12 July 1656, ‘the wife of Francis Wyman of West Mill Green was buried.’ Apparently he remarried shortly thereafter, for his will indicates that he left a widow named Jane. Francis Wyman was buried at West Mill on 19 September 1658. An abstract of his will follows.”
