Don't know if you are still around or are interested, but the information that you were given on the father of Mary Eliot as Philip was wrong.My research shows:
Mary ELIOT was baptized on 11 March 1620/21 in Nazing, County Essex, England.There is a conflict as to whom her father was.Some sources, as early as 1874, and more recent (1995), state that she was the daughter of Bennet and Lettice E. (AGGAR) ELIOT of Widford, Country of Hertforshire and Nazing, sister of Philip, whereas other sources state that she was the daughter of Philip.
Philip was licensed to marry Elizabeth Sybthorpe in 1624, three years after the baptism of Mary, which would indicate Mary was not his child, unless illegitimate, which would surly be mentioned.In Philip’s will, dated 21: 8 [Oct]: 1657, he states “. . . all my three dau. have equall [sic] shares therein,”.His daughters were listed as Elizabeth, Sarah and Lydia.I will accept that Mary is the daughter of Bennett.
On 3 April 1635, Marah (Mary), age 13, emigrated from London to New England on the Hopewell.Other passengers on the Hopewell were Elizabeth of Nazing, wife of Philip ELIOT;Lyddia [sic], age 4; Elizapeth [sic], age 8; Sara, age 6;and Philip, age 2, their childrenThis probably led to the assumption that Mary was the daughter of Elizabeth and Philip.Also on the Hopewell was Giles PAYSON, brother of Edward, Mary’s future husband.Mary died 24 March 1697 at Roxbury.
