Edward Larkin, my immigrant ancestor, married JOANNA BUTLER on March 11, 1637 in Charlestown, Mass. He was admitted an inhabitant of Charlestown on July 30, 1638, and united with the church on September 23, 1639. His occupation was that of a wheelmaker (turner). In 1644, he became a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company. In 1647/8 the town granted him two acres of land at Sandy Bank.

In his will dated July 15, 1651 and proved Feb. 6, 1652, he mentions his wife, Joanna, who received the widow's dower (one-third), and oldest son, John, a double portion. The remainder was to be divided among the children namely: Thomas, Elizabeth, Sarah, Johanna, and his unborn child. His daughter, Hannah, had been adopted by Edward's sister, Joanna & her husband, John Penticost of Charlestown who were childless. Edward left Hannah ten shillings in his will for "good books". His estate consisted of his house, a marsh hay lot, two acres on the Mystic side which was valued at 123.
