* There is no evidence presented by Waldo Lincoln that he and his wife are related on this side of the Atlantic.
According to Lincoln, "He was a carpenter, or â€˜housewright,' and lived at Hingham on the paternal homestead on South street, near the corner of Hersey . . . [his] grandfather, Stephen Lincoln, came to New England from Wymondham, county Norfolk, England, with his wife Margaret and his son Stephen, in the ship â€˜Diligent,' arriving Aug. 10, 1638, and soon after settled in Hingham. He was brother of Thomas Lincoln â€˜the husbandman,' another Hingham settler" (10). His reference here is to the History of Hingham (2.476).
