Abell was about 70 years old when his last child was born.
Many people think that the father of Mary HILTON Downer Sears Huse was William HILTON. But she may have been too young to be the daughter of William Hilton Sr. and too old to be the daughter of William Hilton Jr,. Her parentage remains a mystery.” citation: The Great Migration Begins, Vol 2, pg 955.
In this same volume of Great Migrations, on page 947, we are introduced to Edward Hilton, fish monger from Dover, England. His child list by his first marriage to [__?__] contains 6 children with b. dates from 1629 to about 1642. There is a gap from abt 1633 to 1640. Wife [__?__] dies after about 1642. He marries (2) Katherine Shapleigh, widow of James Treworgy. Some say that she was born about 1599 and didn’t give Edward any further children. She already had a large family by Mr. Treworgy.
QUESTION: Does anyone have evidence that Edward Hilton and [__?__] gave birth to Mary Hilton in the time gap provided in the child list?
