Is his mom nee Jude or Marlow (or Marlowe)?

I started working on the Josselyns because my Maryland Sumners had gotten entangled with this line by mistake. All the duplicate profiles for Abraham's father Thomas seem to agree on basics but Rebecca is shown as born Jude & born Marlow (or Marlowe) - and  a couple of her duplicate profiles have a dad (Jude & Marlow) attached. All the Rebeccas married Thomas 1615 (some text has 1614), but most profiles have location of marriage as Massachusetts, along with "Arrival" in Boston of Thomas in 1635. Help?

Well, It would be fairly impossible for the couple to be married in Massachusetts, New England, in 1615, before the Mayflower arrived.  Your only hope would be to find a parish register showing their marriage, for that you would need to know specifically from whence they came.

yup, that's my take too. Two of her profiles have married 1615 in Chelmsford, Essex, England (Jude-11 and Marlow-11)
