Proof that William of Taunton had a sister who married Anthony Slocum:
"Anthony [Slocum] was one of the forty-three 'first and ancient purchases' in 1637, of the territory incorporated in 1639, as Taunton, in New Plymouth, now Massachusetts... Anthony's wife was probably a sister of William Harvey, who was also one of the first purchasers of Taunton. [no reason or evidence given]."

1638: One of the first proprietors of Taunton (first part of Plymouth colony; later Bristol county) Massachusetts.
William Harvey married Joane Hucker of Cohannet 2 April 1639.
The 1647 will of Agnes Clark in Ashill, Somerset, made a bequest to William Harvey, the son of Thomas Harvey, deceased, "my kinsman now in New England..." The same will also identifies a brother of William, namely, James, who apparently remained in England. (But which William Harvey is this referring to? William of Taunton or William of Boston?
