    • Notes: 
    • Most sources state Samuel Lathrop's wife was named Elizabeth Scudder, but Robert Charles Anderson in his book "The Great Migration: Immigrants to New England 1634-1635, Vol. VI, R-S" says his wife's name was Hannah Scudder. However, Anderson does identify her as Elizabeth in the John Lothrop entry in an earlier volume (GM 2:4:348), as well as cite sources that also identify her as Elizabeth.
