Note: 1. Walter and his wife, Elizabeth Carter, may be the ancestor of WalterPalmer (of Stonington) but not confirmed.
2. We have used a "! PLACEMARK !" just to record the William and/or JohnPalmer of Parham lineage for interested researchers. Walter Palmer ofStonington IS NOT OF THAT FAMILY.
Many researchers have incorrectly recorded Walter of Stonington as a sonof Sir John and/or William Palmer and Elizabeth Verney. Some recordseven show Sir John and William as one person, William John Palmer. Thedeath date of William Palmer proves most of the those assertionsincorrect.
In reality, a William Palmer I married Elizabeth Verney and their sonWilliam II, who died in his second year, is incorrectly thought to beWalter. It is probable Elizabeth Verney married or had children withboth William and John Palmer, sons of Thomas Palmer creating theconfusion.
Walter's ancestry, or more correctly lack thereof, has been confirmed byElmer Hall Palmer, Society Genealogist, of the Walter Palmer Society and,from the Parham House "The Family of Palmer" pedigree chart. [January1999]
