Elizabeth Newhall was born in England about 1586[1] (or 1587 in Sherington, Buckinghamshire, England). Whether she was born in Sherington or Olney is uncertain, since family events for the Newhalls seemed to happen in both villages.

She was married to Edmund/Edward Farrington on November 29, 1613 at Sherington, Buckinghamshire.[2]

She was sister of THOMAS NEWHALL {1638, Lynn} and ANTHONY NEWHALL {1638, Lynn}.

Their children were:

  1. Edward, mentioned in Edmund's will
  2. Thomas
  3. Sarah, baptized 5 Sep 1619, a passenger on the Hopewell[2]
  4. Matthew, baptized 12 Feb 1620/21, a passenger on the Hopewell[2]
  5. John, baptized 1622, a passenger on the Hopewell[2]
  6. Elizabeth, baptized 19 Sep 1624, possibly the same individual as Elizabeth, below.
  7. Elizabeth, born about 1627, a passenger on the Hopewell[3]

Elizabeth (Newhall) Farrington died at Lynn, Massachusetts on October 15, 1678.
