Biography

James was born about 1624 in England, He is probably not the son of Edward Doty as Edward came to the colony as a youth. (So, his children would have been born in the new world.) (Consider: Edward Doty (Father) and Winifred Warner (Mother).)

According to Deane, he "was early in this town [Scituate], having married Lydia, daughter of Humphrey Turner 15 Aug. 1649.[1][2] They had between 1650 and 1670 the following children:[1]

  1. Mary
  2. James
  3. Elizabeth
  4. Martha
  5. Lydia
  6. Sarah
  7. Samuel
  8. Robert
  9. Susanna.

He was a soldier in Philip's war, and 1678, was paid by the Town for nine week's campaign in 1676. This family may have removed to Connecticut." [1]

Disputed parents

The claim by Frank A. Randall, Randall and Allied Families, (Chicago, 1943, p. 4), that the James Doty who married Lydia Turner was a son of [Doty-42|Edward Doty]] of the Mayflower is clearly invalid. He did not share in Edward Doty's estate even though he was living at that time.[3]

There is no evidence that the Mayflower Edward Doty married Winifred Warner in England or in Plymouth Colony. There is no evidence that the Mayflower Edward Doty had a son named James, no mention in his will or in Faith Clark's documentation. I have removed the Mayflower Edward Doty and Winifred Warner as parents of this James Doty, in accordance with the Mayflower Project guidelines.
