The baptismal record of Deborah Wing has been found. see for more information.

While Deborah was called age 11 in a 1624 "Passage Beyond the Seas" list, she was actually then 13. It is also believed her mother, Deborah, was a couple years older than her stated age of 32, and likely born shortly before 1590.

The will of Rev. John Wing(e), dated 2 Nov 1629, stated daughter Deborah had been "advanced in marriage". This language possibly means a marriage contract had already been arranged (along with a dowry) but the wedding had not yet occurred at the time the will was written.

While some speculate that Deborah was the wife of Edward Fo(o)rd, one of the overseers of Rev. John's will, research has indicated Edward was a contemporary of Rev. John, and thus likely too old to have married his daughter. In addition, there is no evidence to support such a claim.

The before 1680 date for death is due to the fact Deborah was not mentioned as an heir of the estate of her brother, Matthew. It is possible she was then still living, but not considered an heir (due to the property being located in Plymouth Colony and Deborah possibly remained in England).
