K. Haden, in 
makes a strong case for changes in the origins, and life events, of Wiliam Comstock and his relations,
After detailing her research, she concludes that:
"...The name of William Comstock's wife is proved as Elizabeth in Connecticut records - but her surname has never been proved as Daniel or Daniels. The fact that it appears as Daniel(s) in very many places cannot be taken as proof - I have found no substantiation for this name anywhere. It was given in a lineage society application when no proof documents were required and many of these early applications contain major errors. The marriage in 1623 to an Elizabeth (Cock, or perhaps Cocke) (In High Wycombe) is timely and in a possible location either for a young groom born earlier in the inner city or an outlying parish. . .
"...The names of the sons baptized (in St. Margaret's Church, Uxbridge, Hillingdon, Middlesex) coincide closely with the names and possible birth dates of the four probable sons of William Comstock, (Daniel b. 1624, John, b. 1626, Samuel, b. 1629, Christopher b. 1636, to include possibly an infant Christopher b. 1632) that died young . . . . There is also the baptism of the single daughter Elizabeth (b. 1631)
"...The Comstock records in this Parish end with the baptism of Christopher in May of 1636. William Comstock is listed on a list of settlers who came to Watertown, CT between 1636 and 1640 and he was not one of the original settlers - many of these that came between 1636-1640 are said to have come direct from England. A Wethersfield, CT record shows that William Comstock owned land in 1641 that he had purchased from Richard Milles - Milles had left Wethersfield in 1639. This suggests William Comstock had come before 1639, but not before 1636, which coincides nicely with the end of the records in Uxbridge, England and the lack of records in Connecticut prior to 1636 even though some researchers have alluded to the possible presence of William Comstock, without actual citations, before 1636. "
I viewed the baptismal and marriage records cited and concur with her assessment. I also examined the vital records of Culmstock, Devon, the presumed source of the name Comstock and the purported birthplace of this family, at . There is no record there of any Comstock, Culmstock, Daniel, Cock, or Cocke; while recordkeeping began only in 1608, after the birth of William and likely birthdate of Elizabeth, their marriage and baptisms of children would have shown up in those records had they occurred there, and they do not.
Therefore, major changes in his profile and the profiles of his wife Elizabeth, and their child Daniel, their non-children Gideon and William appear warranted.
There's more about events in New England in K Haden's work that needs to be reflected in biographies as well.
That's a lot of change. I'm willing to go ahead to make those changes, but I welcome input before starting in. Halsey Bullen
William Comstock was born in England about 1595. He married as his second wife Elizabeth Daniel, she was born about 1608 and died after 1665. William is believed to have died about 1683.
William Comstock was born July 4, 1585 in Culmstock, Devonshire, England. He died in 1683 in New London, New London, Conn. William married Elizabeth Daniel. Their children:
Daniel, born July 21, 1630 in Providence, Rhode Island, died in1683 in Stonington, Conn. He married Paltiah Elderkin in 1653 in Lynn, Essex, Mass.
William Comstock owned property in Wethersfield by 28 April 1641, when he is listed on the Wethersfield inventory of properties regarding the "lands he bought of Richard Mills" at that date.  The inventories were made within a few years, up to five years, of the transfer of property.  We can estimate that William Comstock may have been in Wethersfield before 1640.
They WERE NOT children of William and Elizabeth! The son John did have a son named William (1669-1728, who lived in Lyme, New London, CT - the earliest known William Comstock. There is not a record of any Gideon Comstock until the 4th generation. There is no proof of any "unknown" child.

PLEASE NOTE: William Comstock has NO PROVED PARENTS. He did not have the name "Wethersfield" - that was where he lived briefly in Connecticut. There was NO SUCH PERSON as a William Goodman Comstock. This is Intenet "garbage" and undocumented by anyone. The family probably originated from Culmstocke because many English surnames derived from locations but that is also UNPROVED!

Several errors and traditions have crept into the Comstock lineage of William who died in new London,about 1683. There was no William Goodman Comstock - there is a record in New London referring to "old goodman Comstock" - that is a social greeting, not a given name, which well-meaning researchers have misunderstood. The births of William & Elizabeth in England are not proved as the same persons. Elizabeth's surname as Daniels is also not proved by any documentation that can now be found. There were no sons Gideon & William - they were grandsons. Only John & Daniel are proved by actual documentation; Samuel, Christopher, & Elizabeth only by circumstance.
