  • Notes 
    • Mary Beth Wheeler notes:

      "Richard Foxwell, according to Savage, probably came in the fleet with Gov. Winthrop and requested admission as Freeman 19 Oct 1630; he was sworn 18 May 1631. He removed to Scituate and was there by 1634, if not earlier. He married Ann Shelley in 1634; she came over that year as a servant, per Roxbury church records. Richard was one of the first founders of the church at Scituate with Rev. John Lothop 8 Jan 1635, although the births of the children Savage lists are recorded at Barnstable. He removed to Barnstable before April, 1641."

      "New England Gleanings," in English Origins of New England Families CD, Series 1, Vol. 3, pg. 627 relates that on 2 July 1664 a Richard Foxwell of Black Point (Scarborough, Maine), gentleman, and John his son of the same place, carpenter, sell one half in common in certain lands to George Foxwell in the City of Exon in Deavon [sic] in England, merchant. This is NOT the same Richard Foxwell; the ME man died before 6 Nov. 1677 when his estate was administered by son Philip. See Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire, page 244" [3]
