Notes

Robert Udden was buried on 30 Oct 1658. There were several people with the same name. This one seems to have married Agnes Snow on 7 Sep 1626, but her name is also transcribed as Anne and Jane; she was buried as Anne on 17 May 1657. The children mentioned in the will were Thomas (bap. 19 Sep 1630) and Dionys (bap. 18 Feb 1636/7). She married Peter Stutsbery on 17 July 1657, and the John mentioned in the will was their son, bap. 6 Aug 1658.
