Ichabod Wiswall was born about 1637 at Dorchester, Massachusetts to Thomas Wiswall and his wife Elizabeth. He entered Harvard College in 1651. He may not have graduated. He taught for a while in Dorchester. He was ordained at Duxbury in 1676. He went to England in 1689 to obtain a new charter for the Plymouth Colony. About that time Increase Mather was in England and obtained a joint charter which included Plymouth as a apart of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

Rev. Wiswall married twice: first to Remember [unknown surname]. They had a daughter Elizabeth born November 6, 1670. His second wife was Priscilla Pabodie. They married at Duxbury near the end of 1679. Six more children were born to the second marriage: Mercy, Hannah, Peleg, Perez, Priscilla and Deborah. He died testate at Duxbury on July 23, 1700, in his 63rd year.

Greetings, I'd like to add Elizabeth Wiswall http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Wiswall-227 as Ichabod Wiswall's daughter. Please note, I have given her Remember Wiswall as her mother as it seems fairly clear Priscilla Pabodie is NOT her mother. See references to Ichabod's will (in her profile). Also one reference to Remember and Ichabod - this is tentative. I see there are references to Elizabeth in his biography.
