Family tradition regards Edmund Perry of Devonshire as the father of Edward Perry of Sandwich, MA. However, William Wright, who has probably done the most recent research in that area, believes that it is not really conclusive. He slso doubts that Ezra of Sandwich is his brother, and even that Sarah Perry of Sandwich was not Edward's mother, but possibly his step-mother. If any one has proof, one way or the other, let us know. Wright makes his assertion based on his interpretation of probate court records. Calbraith Perry in his research in early part of this century makes the opposite assertion based on the same info. I suspect that Wright's interpretaion is accurate.
