<< Hello, You seem to be helping many of us on line. Do you any info of a
Henry Lake of Dorchester MA? I am especially interested in his wife ALice.
She was supposidly executed as a witch in Dorchester MA. shortly after 1648.
At that time Henry and the children came to RI. I understand that there is
also some info about Alice LAKE in the American Genealogist (number 12 , page
17 by G.Andrews Many Thanks, >>
I can't imagin wht, but there is not a biographical sketch about Henry
Land in Pope's "Pioneers of Massachusetts. He was certainly there, in the
first half of the 1600s. Some of his children were born there, so there
should be records. He did mopve around a bit and had children in Rhode
Island &and Conneticut, but that doesn't sem to be a reason for leaving him
out. Maybe this is just one of the glitches that form a basis for criticism
of Pope's work?
The book does say this about his brother:
Thomas, husbandman, Dorchester, adm. chh. 20 (9) 1640, frm. June 2,
1641, propr., town officer. Wife Alice d. Oct. 20, 1678, age 70. His
kinsman and servant, Thomas Lake, called before the church 19 (12) 1659
He d. Oct. 27, 1678, age 80. Will prob. 14 Nov. 1678, beq. to the church
a piece of plate for the Lord's table; to his bro. Henry Lake and his
children; to one of them, his cousin Thomas L.; to the overseers of the will.
I learned more about Henry Lake by looking him up in familysearch.org.
He was b. 14 Aug. 1611, Childwell, Riverpool, Lancaster, England, He d. at
Dartmouth, Bristol, Mass.
His parents were Alice Backster and David Lake and they were married 2
Feb. 1607 - 1608, Wilton, Lancaster, Eng.
familysearch.org lists the names & addresss for five submitters of the above
information. I'd suggest you contact these folks & see if you can get what
you need from them. I've pulled a blank, here. Sorry.
