  • On Page 6 it says information about the England ancestry was "confirmed by a genealogist (Gustave Anjou) who claims personal knowledge of the church records at Bradley Plain, Hampshire, and of several other English records and authorities." Unfortunately, "Bradley Plain" is a fictitious place, and much of the information from Gustave Anjou can not be considered accurate. A more thorough explanation in given on pages 10-12 of Jack Harpster's book "John Ogden, the Pilgrim (1609-1682): A Man of More Than Ordinary Mark", published in 2006.
