Bill’s Family: Ancestors of Eldora Beahm

Welcome to our family site. These pages are a compilation of published books and records, original research by myself and others in our family, and various websites. Our scope is limited: we are not trying to collect everyone, just our own ancestors and their descendants. Each page covers one set of direct ancestors and their family, down to the great-grandchildren (second cousins to us). Feel free to use anything on this page, but please credit the website if you plan to publish anything.   HOME


John Daggett and Hebzibah Brotherton



15732. John Daggett was born 4 Nov 1602 in Boxford (Suffolk) England, and died 26 May 1673 in Plymouth (Plymouth) Massachusetts. He married sometime before 1625 in England,

15733. Hebzibah Brotherton (also seen as Alice Brotherton). Hebzibah was born about 1604 in Suffolk, England, and died in 1667 in Edgartown (Dukes) Massachusetts.

These are the earliest known ancestors in this branch of the family. The name Brotherton is thought to be locational, perhaps from a town of that name in Yorkshire; people with this name are first seen in the 1300’s. Daggett may be Norman, from a French word for knife or dagger; but it may also be of Viking origin, derived from a first name. People with this name are first noted in Yorkshire in the 1200’s.

John and Hebzibah had five children:

15732.1. John

15732.2. Thomas Daggett [7866] (1632 MA - 1691 MA) and Hannah Mayhew are direct ancestors, separate page.

15732.3. Elizabeth

15732.4. Hepzibah

15732.5. Joseph

just a placeholder to indicate I'm still working on the page



This page is just here to hold a place. It will be filled in as I get to it, check home page for updates.

I have a large amount of material to add, and expect completion no sooner than 2012.

I am currently going back through old pages to add sources -- have not completed this one yet, but will eventually
