Ursula SCOTT was christened (as "Urslay") on 15 February 1598 Rattlesden, Suffolk. She married Richard KIMBALL, son of Henry KIMBALL and Johane -, on 23 October 1615 Rattlesden, Suffolk. Came with husband, initial children, brother Thomas Scott and mother Martha, on the ship 'Elizabeth' sailing 10 Apr 1634. She died before 1661 probably in Ipswich, Essex, Massachusetts, when her husband married a second time.

Ursula was the daughter of Henry Scott of Rattlesden, as appears from the following extract from Henry Scott's will:

"To Abigale Kemball my grandchild twentie shillings to be paid at 21 to Henrie Kemball my grandchild twenty shillings to be paid at 21 to Elizabeth Kemball my grandchild twenty shillings to be paid at 21 to Richard Kemball my grandchild twenty shillings to be paid at 21." He also mentions his wife Martha, and sons Roger and Thomas Scott. Thomas Scott came with his wife and children to this country in the same vessel as Richard and his family, and they brought Martha Scott with them. The will was made 24 Sept. 1625 in the 21st year of James of England by Henry Scott of Rattlesden in the Co. Suffolk and diocese of Norwich. It was proved in the court of the Archdeacon of Sudbury 10 January 1624-5. As Thomas Scott settled in Ipswich this may have had some influence in causing Richard's removal from Watertown. Henry Scott was buried at Rattlesden, Dec. 24, 1624. (Parish Register)
