What is the evidence for the parents of William Greene of Woburn, MA?

The narrative, citing sources, claims his origins/parents are not known, but parents are attached to him. What is the source for these parents?

NOTE: This claimed lineage takes us back to The Magna Carta barons, so it would be nice to confirm or debunk this link.

The Great Migration Directory says origins Unknown. And it looks as though everything cited by Anderson has been consulted on the biography.

Please PPP the profile. Thanks.

Well that's a completely different set of parents from what the current profile has!

And how do we know that it's the immigrant to Woburn?

Thanks, Wayne. I'm not worried about his life post emigration; it's his origins I'm worried about. Thanks.
