Re: Woodworth Tree - England 1610 to CA 2000
From internet searches, it appears that Walter Woodworth may have been s/o Thomas WOODWORTH and Elizabeth TYSON. I have no further info on them.
Walter's wife is thought to be Elizabeth Rogers. There is speculation that she might be the daughter of Thomas Rogers who was on the Mayflower. This line is not proven and as far as I know is not recognized by the Mayflower society.
I have this quote:
From Jeanette Behan's Woodworth Family Newsletter, Vol 1, #1, Sept-Oct 1984,
"Some have speculated that Walter married Elizabeth Rogers, the daughter of
Thomas Rogers of the Mayflower.However, the Mayflower Society accepts the
position that Elizabeth Rogers, daughter of Thomas Rogers of the Mayflower,
married first Johnathan Higgens and after her death he married Elizabeth's
sister Hannah.There were other early Rogers families who would possibly
qualify - descendants of John Rogers of Marshfield, Mass. and John Rogers of
Weymouth, Mass., if in fact Walter did marry a Rogers."
Maybe there are some experts out there that can shed more light on the subject.
