Orlando BAGLEY Sr. (1628 – 1700) was Alex’s 10th Great Grandfather, one of 2,048 in this generation of the Shaw line.
Orlando Bagley was born about 1628 in England. His parents were NOT John Bagley and Mary Warren which is another unrelated Biglo family. John Biglo seems to have arrived in Watertown, MA about 1632. Orlando married Sarah COLBY 6 Mar 1654 in Salisbury, Mass. Orlando died in 1700 in Boston, Mass.
- Amesbury Monument – The Golgotha Burying Ground is also found on Rt. 110 (Macy St.), in Amesbury Massachusetts about a half a mile east. It is the first burial ground in Amesbury but there are no markers.

“ORLANDO BAGLEY, the pioneer ancestor of the Bagley family of Worcester, Massachusetts, was born in England, as near as can be ascertained, between 1624 and 1630. He came to America some time before 1653, as it is recorded that he was married at that time in Salisbury, probably of that part of the town which is now Amesbury, Massachusetts. He removed to Boston soon afterward, as some of his children were born there. He was made a freeman in 1667, admitted to the church, and is believed to have died in Boston before 1700. He married Sarah Colby, the daughter of Anthony Colby — the first Colby to come to America — by whom he had five children, the second child named Orlando.”

I can’t find any details for Mary’s supposed husband William Colby which is odd given how close the two families were.
