Alice is named Alice Walcott in her father Richard Ingersoll's will dated 21 July 1644.[2] [3] [4]

Alice was wife of William Wolcott. [5]

William Walcott, b. c.1610, was granted 30 acres of land at Jeffrey's Creek near Salem MA in 1636. He must have returned to England, however, as he is listed as leaving England for America in 1638: "William Walcot for Capt. Butler, passenger for Providence Island by the Swallow". William held land at Salem for a family of 4 people in 1640. He married Alice Ingersoll, daughter of Richard Ingersoll of Salem. Richard Ingersoll's daughter, Alice Walcott, was mentioned in his will to receive "my house at town with 10 acres upland & meadow after my wifes decease." [5]
