How could Penelope Ramsey married William Newsome in England before 1636, if she arrived in America as Penelope Ramsey in 1636? Can someone please explain this.   Wouldn't she have arrived as Mrs Penelope Newsome, if she was married already to William Newsome?

Cathi,

I agree with you. I think Penelope arrived in America being a single woman.

If you take a look to her husband's (William) profile, she was the 1st. of 4 wives!!

Cited sources are not reliables.

Besides it doesn't make sence having children 20 years after getting married with William using his surname when he got married three more times supposedly.

There are several sources on line that say William transported her to Virginia.  I don't have access to the sources I have but I think he a obtained head rights for her.  He would most likely married her in England as he did his second and third wife.  I will try to find my box of records tommorow.  But there are some references on line.
