Join: Puritan Great Migration Project
Nathaniel immigrated from England with his parents and sisters aboard the Increase, which "sailed from London in April, 1635." He was only eight years old.
"Nathaniel Josselyn, Sen., second son of Thomas and Rebecca... settled at Lancaster in 1654, and was made freeman in 1673. After the destruction of Lancaster he lived at Marlborough, and there he died April 8, 1694. In his will, made March 3, of the same year, he named his wife Sarah, sons Nathaniel and Peter, and five daughters, Sarah, Dorothy, Rebecca, Elizabeth, and Martha; his father (in-law) King, and brothers (in-law) Kerly and Sumner."

Josselyn name in England as depicted on WikiTree is not correct as it died out, and went to a nephew.

Nathaniel was an early settler of Lancaster, MA and moved to Marborough, MA about 1675, so it's understandable that Patience, Martha and Esther were not born in Lancaster, MA.
(Later descendants of Peter's moved to Waitsfield, VT., which explains why their genealogy is included in the history of that town.)
