|Death: ||Jul. 28, 1674|
Elizabeth Stalham (by Williams family tradition has also been known as "Stratton") sailed with her husband Robert Williams and 4 children for America in the ship "Rose" from Great Yarmouth, landing in New England in the year 1637.
According to family tradition, Robert's wife "was of a good family and had been delicately reared; and when her husband desired to come to America, though a truly religious woman, she dreaded the undertaking and shrank from the hardships to be encountered. While the subject was still under discussion, she had a dream foreshadowing that if she went to America, she would become the mother of a long line of worthy ministers of the Gospel. The dream so impressed her that she rose up cheerfully and began to prepare to leave her home and kindred for the new and distant land".
(Emily Williams of Wethersfield, MA, a great-great-great-grandaughter of Elizabeth, is remembered to have related this tradition in the early part of the nineteenth century, with full confidence of its truth.)
