Death: Apr. 23, 1707

Anthony Day was born about 1616/17, probably in England or Wales. At age 19, he was one of the passengers on the ship "Paule," and Leonard Betts is the master, which sailed from London, England July 16, 1635 bound for Virginia. He had a certificate of conformity to the Church of England, issued by the minister at Gravesend.

Where he landed and where he spent the first ten years of his residence in America are not know, but the records of Gloucester, Massachusetts, show that Anthony Day sold land to John Pearce about the year 1645. He also purchased a house and lot of Edward Marshall in that town in 1657 in the "Poles."

In 1650, Anthony Day married Susanna Matchett, who survived him ten years, dying December 10, 1717, aged ninety-three. Anthony died in Gloucester, Massachusetts, April 23, 1707, at the age of ninety. Their children all believed to be born in Gloucester.
