Biography

Alice Elizabeth Egington was born Bet. 1584 - 1609 in England, and died Bet. 1633 - 1698, in Rehoboth, Bristol County, Massachusetts, a town where she and her husband Edward Bennett were founding settlers. She was the mother of many known children, possibly as many as ten.

Elizabeth Egington and Edward Bennett were married October 27, 1622, in Sedgley, Staffordshire, England [1] They had four children in England before sailing on the ship "James" from Weymouth, Malcombe-Regis Dorset, England to Weymouth Massachusetts in 1636. There, Edward took up as he was entitled to thirty-six acres of public land. He was made a freeman in 1636.

After a residence there for seven years, Edward became an original proprietor in the company that founded Rehoboth, to which place he removed in 1643 with a certain Rev. Newman. Edward died at Rehoboth in 1645, an original "proprietorwealthy," and was buried in Proprietor's cemetery. [2]

Children of Elizabeth and Edward are:

  • Samuel Bennett, born 1628, in Wiltshire or Dorset, England, died September 4, 1684, in East Greenwich, Kent County, Rhode Island
  • John Bennett, born 1630, in Wiltshire or Dorset, England, died October 22, 1691, in Stonington, New London, Connecticut, married Ursula White of Stonington and had ten children
  • Priscilla Bennett, born 1632, in Weymouth, Dorset, England, married William Carpenter, on October 5, 1651, died in childbirth, October 20, 1663, the day their son Benjamin was born.
  • Edward Bennett, born 1634, in Weymouth, Dorset, England
  • Richard Bennett, born circa 1641, in Massachusetts
  • Robert Bennett, born in Massachusetts

Edward died prior to February 18, 1646. Samuel was 18 and John was 16, and old enough to run their father's farm. But, the farm came into the possession of Richard Bowen, Jr. whose name appears instead of hers in an allotment list drawn up in 1658.

I believe this listing of AE Eginton Bennett more closely aligns itself to the dates of her children I list on my data page. The problem with information this old is that it is subject to a lot of minor revisions to fit a particular persons need. It's a tough issue. At this point only God knows the truth.

Eginton-6 and Egington-2 are not ready to be merged because: The birthdates are very different, and is her first name Alice or Elizabeth?

Eginton-6 and Egington-2 appear to represent the same person because: Variations of the spelling of the last name. The father for Eginton-6 has the spelling Egington (with the second g)

I hate to out and out merge these two ladies as I don't have enough evidence to link them with confidence. I want to keep digging. Mike Bennett Zany4God@msn.com
