Today we’ve updated Early New England Families, 1641-1700adding five new sketches. All five sketches pertain to the Phelps family who originally settled in Salem. The new sketches are listed below:

Eleanor (Batter) (Phelps) Trusler (m. ?-1639)
Hannah (Baskel) (Phelps) (Phelps) Hill (m. 1645-1695)
Edward Phelps (m. 1646)
Nicholas Phelps (m. 1645)
Henry Phelps (m. 1664)

Early New England Families, 1641-1700 is written by Alicia Crane Williams. This study project highlights heads of families mentioned in Torrey’s New England Marriages to 1700, focusing on individuals who immigrated from 1641 through 1700, grouped by year of marriage.
