Baptized Nazeing, Essex, 14 May 1609 (aged 26 on 3 April 1635; d. 28 January 1688/9, aged 78). Husbandman who came to Massachusetts Bay in 1635 on the "Hopewell" & settled in Roxbury MA. (On 3 April 1635, "Giles Payson," aged 26, was enrolled at London as a passenger for New England on the "Hopewell". Died in Roxbury 28 January 1688/9, "a. 78 years."
Married in Roxbury [blank] April 1637 Elizabeth Dowell. She died at Roxbury on 8 January 1677[/8?].
Giles Payson was almost certainly brother of EDWARD PAYSON {1634, Roxbury}. Both men were baptized in Nazeing, but the parish registers there did not yet provide the names of parents in the baptismal records for those years. The two men bought land together in Roxbury and Dorchester, but no New England record explicitly calls them brothers.
