Henry Scott was probably born about 1565.  His parents were Edmund SCOTT and Joan [__?__].  (See Walter Goodwin Davis’ story of Edmund and Joan below. ) He married Martha WHATLOCK  on 25 Jul 1594.  Henry was buried in Rattlesden 24 Dec 1624.

Martha Whatlock was born June 18, 1568 in Rattlesden, Suffolk, England.  Her parents were Thomas WHATLOCK and Joan [__?__] who had been baptized in Rattlesden 18 Jul 1568. Martha emigrated to New England with her daughter Ursula, son-in-law Richard Kimball and their seven children, son Thomas and his family, and Henry Kemball (probably Richard’s brother) and his family. They sailed aboard the Elizabeth, from Ipswich, England, on 30 Apr, 1634  The crossing took almost three months and they landed in Boston. 

Martha Scott’s age is given on the list as sixty, although she was actually aged sixty-six. The Scotts and the Kimballs settled in Ipswich after a short stay in Watertown and there, presumablhy Martha Scott died, there being no record.

The will of Henry Scott was made 24 Sep 1623 and proved 10 Jan 1624.  It serves to establish the relationship between the families.

“To Abigale Kemball my grandchild twenty shillings to be paid at 21 to Henrie Kemball my grandchild twenty shillings to be paid at 21 to Elizabeth Kemball my grandchild twenty shillings to be paid at 21 to Richard Kemball my grandchild twenty shillings to be paid at 21.” He also mentions his wife Martha, and sons Roger and Thomas Scott.

Henry Scott’s will was made “24 Sept. 1625 in the 21st year of James of England by Henry Scott of Rattlesden in the Co. of Suffolk and the diocese of Norwich.” It was proved in the court of the Arch deacon of Sudbury 10 January 1624-5. As Thomas Scott settled in Ipswich this may have had some influence in causing Richard’s removal from Watertown. Henry Scott was buried in Rattlesden 24 Dec. 1624. (Parish Register.)

    Thank you for your wonderful website. We have dozens of common ancestors. My paternal grandfather was born in King’s County, Nova Scotia and thus the common lines: Bachiler, Scott, Ring, Perkins, Newcomb, etc.
