In England

Peter Worden (I) (1568-1639) & Margaret Grice (1569-1612)

Peter Worden was born at Lancashire, England on 09 Jun 1568, the a son of Robert Worden & Isobel Worthington. They were the parents of three children, all born at Lancashire:

  • Eleanor (Elen) Worden 29 Apr, 1599 ... married John Adams, ancestor of the Presedent.

  • Thomas Worden (1600)

  • Peter Worden (1609)

Margaret died in England in or after 1609 and Peter has been reported as remarried ANN FARINGTON who also died in England. We have conflicting information on Ann and she may have not existed, at least as the wife of Peter.

We assume that Peter and his children, and grandchildren sailed to America after 1620.

Peter died 9 March 1638/9, in Yarmouth, Plymouth County, Massachusetts. He was our 9th great grandfather.

Details of his life and relationships is found at Peter Worden I (abt. 1570 - bef. 1639)
